Outstanding Teaching Learning and Assessment 2: south west - final project report

Hesmondhalgh, T and Crawley, J (2017) Outstanding Teaching Learning and Assessment 2: south west - final project report. Education and Training Foundation, London.

Abstract

Context When our involvement in OTLA began it was an already existing and successful programme, with versions having been delivered by The Learning Consortium across Essex/Kent, AoC London in the London area, and emfec in the East Midlands. OTLA2 was a strand of activity that came to include us in the South West, and The Learning Consortium in Yorkshire. Using learnings from the previous programmes we developed a smaller scale, ‘solutions focussed’ approach with a larger number of smaller projects. There were no preset ‘themes’ and we encouraged providers to focus on areas of concern within their existing improvement planning so that project delivery would have a direct impact on standards. The project focussed on FE providers in 6 counties: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire, and Gloucestershire. Delivery team Our delivery team comprised of our Partnership Mentors (Rosemarie D’ambrosio-Winter and Paul Stych) and our Research Mentor (Jim Crawley). These were supported by the Project Manager (Tom Hesmondhalgh), Education Director (Kevin Piper), and the rest of the project team at Creative Education. Partnership Mentors were the first point of contact and engagement with providers. They supported the initial promotion of the opportunity, assisted providers as they made their applications, and provided support and challenge right through the project delivery. The Research Mentor’s role was to provide projects with access to research based approaches they may wish to include in their proposal, train on research methods, and assist with final reporting.
