Support for remote working

Start your digital CPD journey with the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform

Enhance starter guide coverThe Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has developed a user-friendly online training service, the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform (EnhanceDTP), designed specifically to help the Further Education (FE) sector staff with scarce time for CPD to respond to self-identified training needs. The focus is on effective teaching, rather than technology, with a structure that puts you in control of your own digital CPD.

The platform features two core offers – the first focused on use of Educational Technology (EdTech) in teaching and training, based on the Digital Teaching Professional Framework (DTPF), and the second on Essential Digital Skills for life and work.

This guide is for teachers and trainers in FE who are looking for free, easy-to-access support to develop their teaching practice using technology. The 60-minute Teacher Starter Pack (accessible version) aims to equip practitioners to support their learners whatever the circumstances. 

Fully-funded online EdTech webinar recordings

We have recorded a series of free, online webinars to help colleagues across the FE sector who work from home to support their students and learners.

You can access the webinars through the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform.

14 new EdTech modules to support digital learning

14 new educational technology (EdTech) training modules released on the Enhance Digital Teaching Platform with the aim to support teachers and trainers across the sector with digital content creation and delivery at a time when remote working is necessitated again. The modules cover practical topics including:

The new modules all map to the ETF’s national EdTech competency framework, the Digital Teaching Professional Framework (DTPF). The DTPF helps practitioners to track progress in using EdTech through three stages of development – Exploring (starter), Adopting (intermediate), and Leading (advanced). The new training modules cover all three stages of development.

This latest batch of 14 modules is part of the ETF’s EdTech Strategy to provide training covering all aspects of the DTPF by end of March 2021.

To access the new training modules, please visit the Enhance platform.
