The first round of Spring term networks have been very well represented, produced beneficial content and received excellent feedback. We have three further Networks which are taking place early in March, read on to discover what’s coming up and when.
Work Based Learning Network – 8 March
We are bringing a refreshed approach to this network, including two new facilitators.
Introducing Tracy Murphy (Associate Consultant – Education and Skills), and Oli Playe who has 10 years’ FE experience within MIS and funding.
There will be a presentation and discussion opportunity on how providers optimise their funding claims for learner support and reflection on the latest funding rules guidance. Following on from last terms discussion on what activity contributes to off-the-job training delegates will focus on how providers can evidence the 20% for audit purposes. In addition, the network will address the 222 out of 531 standards currently available and how this is affecting individuals. Book your place
Maths Network – 9 March
We are pleased to welcome back Steve Pardo, the Education & Training Foundation Regional Specialist Lead for Maths to this very popular network.
Steve will present changes brought about by the reform of functional skills and the implications of the new subject content for delivery from 2019. With standards appearing more challenging in addition to the importance of developing and testing underpinning skills along with the application of skills for problem solving, the reforms have succeeded in displaying a clear progression with an added academic weight to give them more rigour alongside the GCSE route. The session will provide opportunity to discuss strategic and classroom-based practices to increase attendance and engagement in maths. Book your place now
Don’t forget the Coaching Network – this term, we are bringing to you, a special 1 day event on 6 March. This event provides opportunity of a half a day Professional Development event which will address the differences, purpose and skills required for Coaching, Mentoring and Counselling. The second half of the day will provide half a day to network and discuss implementing coaching in an organisational context, the importance of coaching contracting and supervision and how we can collaborate and share contracting documentation and work together to provide a network of coaching supervision. Delivered and facilitated by Jo Shirley, ILM qualified coach and Amie Nazaruk-Wheeler from Grow Development Solutions a well-respected coaching qualification provider and internal coach.
