Don’t miss this opportunity of attending the final 3 Spring Term Networks
Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare Network – 14 March
Resilience is often referred to as a collection of skills that can help an individual deal with and perform under pressure. To nurture resilience in others, we need to nurture it within ourselves. How do you approach this with students? How do we ensure that tutors are resilient?
This network will present findings from the ETF Professional Exchange Project. The project has been addressing the increasing expectations on the education sector to nurture the whole student being a focus in 2018. Developing resilience are all areas that now fall into the job description for those working in education by improving learner behaviour, dealing with mental health, ensuring the welfare and developing personal skills.
There will also be networking opportunity and time to explore different organisational approaches. This network will be facilitated by Jo Shirley with presentations from the ETF project.
English Network – 16 March
The session will be facilitated by Dianne Robinson who has extensive experience of all aspects of post 16 education including FE, ACL, WBL, Offender Learning and HE – Dianne is currently the Education and Training Foundation Regional Specialist for English
We are privileged to welcome Jo Maher, Principal & CEO of Boston College who will highlight details from the recent Ofsted report which praised the shift in the culture of English cross college.

Employability and Enterprise Network – 22 March
The final network of the Spring term is Employability and Enterprise. This network will provide a presentation from a recently inspected FE College who were graded “good” and will focus on their effective introduction of work experience on study programmes in addition to high-quality work placements, internships and well considered enrichment activities.
There will also be opportunity to collaborate and discuss the importance of students and apprentices to receive good impartial careers advice and guidance, how you are addressing Careers Strategy recommendations and how the Gatsby Benchmarks affect you and your organisation.
