A key part of our EdTech strategy is to foster robust and close partnerships with FE and Training organisations to ensure that digital technology can enhance learning. We have been, and will continue, to work closely and in consultation with these various organisations to meet their digital needs and to support them in delivering excellence in teaching.

We are already starting to implement positive changes through our Pedagogic Digital Skills Competency Framework. The framework is aimed at supporting teachers and trainers in developing their digital skills, enhancing learning, teaching and assessment, and promote a common understanding.

Micro-learning modules will also be produced and mapped from the framework, which teachers and trainers can complete at their own pace. These modules will be responsive and accessible on all devices. Those who complete the micro-learning modules will receive online badges to provide them with recognition of their improved digital skills – and these can be displayed on their CVs and LinkedIn profiles.

Our EdTech services will be tailored to address an organisations’ specific needs and the services will be offered under a cost recovery model to allow the customers to measure and record progress.

Vikki Liogier, our Head of Learning Technologies said: “This strategy is about how the ETF can best support the Further Education and Training sector in harnessing new technologies to maximise learning outcomes – it is a three-year roadmap for digital technology to ensure excellence in teaching, learning and assessment.”
