Study Programme Support

The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has offered support for the work placement, social action and embedding maths and English aspects of 16-19 study programmes for several years through ‘wrap around’ support packages.

In 2019-2020 the ETF offered 23 providers a subsidised support package which delivered an innovative, high quality tailored 16-19 Study Programme aimed at improving outcomes for learners. Led by touchconsulting Ltd, on behalf of the ETF, the Study Programme package aimed to help organisations across the Further Education and Training sector to enhance and develop their 16-19 Study Programme provision.

The 23 providers took advantage of an innovative, high-quality tailored package spanning September 2019 to March 2020.

This included:

  • a launch webinar
  • six days of bespoke Study Programme mentor support tailored to meet your organisation’s needs
  • two in-house CPD modules from a menu of four:
    – designing and delivering a bespoke employer-informed curriculum
    – using work experience and work placements to build learners’ identity as industry professionals and life-long learners
    – using Maths and English confidently in your vocation
    – developing learners who are active members of the community.
  • access to a blended Community of Practice within and across 23 providers
  • priority access to three Study Programme Guides created for the sector
  • fully subsidised places at the March 2020 #StudyGood Conference.

Three guides were also produced which are freely available through the links below:

1) Study Programmes: Making the right choice – A guide for young people and a supplementary guidance document for adults including parents, carers, careers leaders and teachers.

2) Study Programmes: Building Future Capability and Capacity – A guide for employers.

3) Going for Gold: A guide to high quality study programmes for leaders and managers.
