New Study Programme resources launched

AELP launched two new resources, Study Programmes: Modelling and Operation – e-guide and self-assessment tool at the Modelling 16-19 Study Programmes across the FE & Skills Providers conference held at UCL Institute of Education (IoE) in London last week.

The resources are designed to support strategic leaders and those responsible for governance working across the FE and skills sector set an appropriate vision and strategic direction for Study Programme provision for young people aged 16 to 19.

The e-guide provides clear, up-to-date information and advice, highlighting provider practice drawn from the experiences of providers who recently participated in the Modelling and Operation of 16-19 Study Programmes project. The project was commissioned and funded by the Education and Training Foundation and managed by AELP and its strategic partners the 157 Group and UCL Institute of Education.

The self-assessment tool that is a companion to the guide enables providers to evaluate their organisation’s practice in the management and delivery of Study Programmes using a RAG (Red, Amber, Green) rating and to start planning improvements.

Professor Ann Hodgson, the Co-Director of the Centre for Post 14 Research and Innovation at IoE, the chair of the expert panel and group of practitioners who contributed to the development of the resource, said,

“The task of providing inspiring, motivational and individually tailored Study Programmes for all 16-19 year olds is a vital but challenging one. This new e-guide helps those responsible for the governance and leadership of study programmes meet those challenges by providing clear, authoritative guidance. Readers will be able to benefit from the combined wisdom of an expert panel of leaders and advisers from the education and training sector and associated bodies and from 12 specially commissioned feasibility studies that have contributed to the development of both the guide and self-assessment tool.”

As part of the Modelling and Operation of 16-19 Study Programmes project IoE are running a range of CPD events for those managing study programmes across the country over the next couple of months. The events cover topics such staffing & structures, teaching, learning & assessment, leading on English and maths, work experience, teacher development and using new technologies.
