National Recognition for Outstanding Teaching and Learning

The Education and Training Foundation’s newsletter, published on 1 November 2018, pays tribute to the success of a far-reaching national programme to promote outstanding teaching, learning and assessment in the post 16 sector.

The Council’s Adult Learning Service features twice in an article demonstrating the impact of involving teaching staff in research into vocational teaching. Their first citation describes the Adult Learning team’s research into developing goal-setting techniques to drive up student attainment. Their second inclusion details the team’s involvement in the development of activities to support maths and English learners. These interactive activities have been shown to improve the engagement of highly disadvantaged students with their learning.
