Who is this for?
This course is relevant for ESFA-funded providers across the FE and training landscape who run 16-19 study programmes at all levels. It is future-proofed to current knowledge of T-Levels and the new Education Inspection Framework.
This is a limited opportunity to purchase a high-quality package of support for £1,750. Support commences in September 2019 with participation in a mandatory launch webinar for all 23 providers and ends in March 2020.
You will need to select a lead contact from within your organisation to work closely with your dedicated SP Mentor from our team.
There is an expectation that at least 12 staff members will be directly involved in the programme. These practitioners will then engage and support at least another 26 practitioners. Please read the guidance document carefully for further information.
Using the principles of Nesta's public sector Good Help Report:
1. Undertake self-assessment to inform the support package design, e.g. reviewing systems/processes, understanding data, curriculum intervention, horizon-scanning, learner voice.
2. Gain knowledge, skills & understanding via 2 of the CPD modules:
- Designing & delivering a bespoke employer-informed curriculum (mandatory)
- Using work experience & work placements to build learners' identity as industry professionals & life-long learners
- Using maths & English confidently in your vocation
- Developing learners who are active members of the community
3. Access to 3 guides: for employers, for learners + their parents/carers & practitioners/managers, in addition to curated access to existing SP resources.
4. Engage in a blended CoP, growing digital confidence & learning skills and techniques to also use within the organisation.
5. Contribute to SP Conference, March 2020.
You will have the knowledge and confidence to:
1. Support staff and learners 'to feel hopeful, identify their own purpose and take action' (Nesta, 2018), via the promotion of maths and English skills development across work placement, social action and any other non-qualification domains
2. Critically self-assess the organisation and identify solutions to improve learner outcomes across a diversity of provision, developing a working knowledge of policy initiatives that has meaning and currency
3. Develop meaningful processes to support learner voice, leading along a spectrum of co-creation
4. Establish communities of practice, including action learning sets, within the organisation
5. Research and amplify the organisation's good practice on the national stage
6. Submit a monthly return providing an audit trail for reporting purposes, including direct, indirect and broadcast data.
The course begins in September 2019 with participation in a mandatory launch webinar and runs until the end of March 2020. This is supported bespoke provision, so within that time frame providers will negotiate their own engagement with their designated Study Programme Project Mentor.
- Be ESFA-funded providers of 16-19 study programmes at any level
- Attend the mandatory launch webinar**
- Please ensure that you read the guidance before you make a firm commitment, as it sets out responsibilities and expectations on both sides.
Initial research suggests that participation will be largely drawn from general FE colleges, independent training providers and adult and community learning settings, but this does not exclude other contexts where appropriate.
** Please note booking this webinar will trigger your #StudyGood package of support and guarantee you one of the 23 places on programme**
