From education to employment

The Education and Training Foundation and touchconsulting launch Study Programme support package #StudyGood

Education Providers are invited to book a place for a subsidised support package which will deliver an innovative, high quality tailored 16-19 Study Programme aimed at improving outcomes for learners.

Led by touchconsulting Ltd, on behalf of the Education and Training Foundation (ETF), the Study Programme package aims to help organisations across the Further Education (FE) and Training sector to enhance and develop their 16-19 Study Programme provision.

Twenty-three providers can take advantage of an innovative, high-quality tailored package (£1,750) spanning September 2019 to March 2020.

This includes:

  • a launch webinar (Sept 2019)
  • 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:
    1. designing and delivering a bespoke employer-informed curriculum
    2. using work experience and work placements to build learners’ identity as industry professionals and life-long learners
    3. using Maths and English confidently in your vocation
    4. 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.

Joss Kang, Managing Director of touchconsulting LTD, said:

“We are delighted to be extending our ‘quality improvement movement’ partnership with the ETF into the Study Programme. Our work with Advanced Practitioners is having significant impact and is a timely reminder that managers and practitioners are an untapped and expert resource of research, creativity and practice in FE. We cannot wait to be offering providers our unique blend of support, access to community of practice and CPD opportunities.”

Alison Morris, Executive Director of Programmes at the ETF, said:

“This is an exciting opportunity to make delivery of Study Programme provision relevant and fresh. The offer is tailored to meet the needs of individual colleges and providers, taking into account the different starting points and individual needs of the workforce.”

Interest in the Study Programme support package programme is expected to be very high, with both the ETF and touchconsulting encouraging early sign-ups to avoid missing out on the opportunity.

Further information on the Study Programme support package and how to book one of the 23 places can be found on the ETF’s booking website.
