Nigel Duncan, Principal and Chief Executive of Fareham College (rated Outstanding by Ofsted) in Hampshire, said:
“As part of our Corporate Partner status, we have accessed a number of the ETF’s CPD and networking events, and taken part in funding opportunities such as the Outstanding Teaching and Learning Assessment (OTLA) grant collaborative project. The partnership helps us stay up to date with key issues across the sector. With a key strategic priority to invest in our staff, we find accessing CPD activities across all areas of the curriculum particularly valuable. These have included; managing student behaviour, supporting learners with maths and English, developing an awareness of student mental health issues and supporting students with additional needs. Flexible methods of study that can meet the diverse needs of the Fareham workforce is key to engagement and thus the online courses offered by the ETF are a really effective and accessible mode of delivery.”
John Humphreys, Head of Human Resources of West London College, said:
“We wanted to support Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and maximise both the skills of our existing staff and attract new teachers and trainers. Our key priorities for teaching and learning are to have outstanding teachers and for every learner to be able to achieve their best. The biggest challenge we are currently facing is to recruit, retain and develop teachers in English and STEM subjects – and this is the kind of tailored support being delivered by the ETF.”
