Free (£30.00 non-members)

Following our informative and interactive November network, this further online event via Zoom will continue to support those delivering Initial Teacher Training programmes within the Post-16 sector.

This online networking event will offer attendees an opportunity to come together and discuss elements of Ofsted’s revised Initial Teacher Education framework and how this is impacting delivery and assessment.  We know the fundamental importance of mentoring for trainee teachers and in relation to this, from Blackpool and the Fylde College, we are delighted to welcome Debbie Hobday-Shipton (Curriculum Manager Society Health and Childhood) and Jonathan Hills (Learning, Teaching and Assessment Manager) who have gladly agreed to share their mentoring strategy which is proving successful in ensuring that both mentees and mentors are suitably supported throughout the programme.

This network will offer plenty of opportunity for discussion and the sharing of practice around the revised framework and the impact this is having on providers in relation to the planning and sequencing of learning, and the wellbeing of trainees and their support networks.  In addition, this event will be a prime opportunity to review how organisations are utilising their apprenticeship levy funds to upskill their workforce by delivering the Learning and Skills Teacher Apprenticeship Standard.

Facilitated by Karen Plowman (Head of Professional Development), this online networking session hosted via Zoom will offer plenty of opportunity for you to collaborate, network and share thoughts and ideas with others who deliver post-compulsory education.
