The Foundation is researching this area to provide a basis for the potential development of standardised CPD, qualifications and/or standards and to these ends we commissioned four pilot programmes to devise and deliver a training package for FE teacher trainers, which ran March to July 2017.
These regionally dispersed programmes were be evaluated and provided a basis for a conference in October 2017, sharing outcomes and making proposals for the content of a CPD programme and/or qualification, with the potential to become an additional Diploma module. Subject to consultation we will issue proposals shortly
Due to demand two extra groups ran in Coventry and Derby during Autumn 2017, and two more ran in the Spring 2018 term in London and Lancashire.
Additionally we are running three more courses starting in March: with Bolton University to take place in Manchester, with CETTa to take place in Tyneside and with Warwick University to take place in Reading. For more information please see booking system or contact Howard Pilott.
