Initial Teacher Training (FE)

Looking for our Community of Practitioners? Or jump straight to the WMCOP Bulletins?

In 2013 WMCETT ran the LSIS-funded Changing the Dynamics project which looked at how FE and the Third Sector could work together for their mutual benefit and the benefit of learners.

In 2012-13 WMCETT was also a Hub for the LSIS Teaching and Learning Coach programme.
 

See Research & Projects for more recent activities in this area, especially Professional Dialogues 2011-12, and before.

Aims for Year 5

WMCETT changed its approach to formulating the aims for each of the Priority Areas from Year 3 onwards. Objectives are now identified within themes across all areas.

Information, Advice and Guidance
Produce the WMCOP bulletin 10 times a year to distribute via the West Midland Community of Practitioners and put on the website
 
Resources
Map the learning outcomes and assessment criterion for the revised 2011 Preparing to Teach in the Lifelong Learning Sector (PTLLS) against the learning outcomes and criterion for PTLLS 2007
Map useful resources from educational websites, particularly the Excellence Gateway, against the revised PTLLS learning outcomes
 
Projects
Organise and hold at least one Professional Dialogue seminar and share resources on line.
 
We will also seek to bid to take part in relevant projects that may arise throughout the year.
