Invitation: case studies of digital skills CPD and delivery in Voluntary and Community Sector and Family and Community Learning providers

 

Recent research into Voluntary and Community Sector (VCSE) and Family and Community learning (F&CL) providers’ contribution to digital skills has highlighted a concern about a lack of guidance on good practice in delivery, reflecting a wider concern about staff skills, knowledge and confidence in using technology.

In response to these findings, the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has commissioned the Learning and Work Institute (L&WI) to produce a small number of case studies. These will highlight how sector specific challenges are being addressed effectively by VCSE and F&CL providers, including reaching voluntary and sessional staff and progressing ‘Bring Your Own Device’ approaches.  The case studies also hope to cover the impact of any CPD activity on teaching and learning.

CPD activity can include online, offline and blended approaches and cover both paid staff and volunteers. We are primarily interested in what has worked but would also like to know about any practice that hasn’t – we can learn from both. We want these case studies to be as useful to the sector as possible.

Case study subjects will be asked to complete a short questionnaire and undertake a telephone interview and the resulting case studies will be uploaded to the ETF website.

If you would like to offer to be a case study, please get in touch (details below) with a sentence or two indicating the range of your use of digital technology in learning and skills and of your relevant CPD, and your geographical location. 

Deadline for responses is Friday 19th January.
