Date(s) - 24/04/2018
10:00 am - 2:30 pm
This network is designed to support college staff in all areas of curriculum development. For 2017/18 the focus of this group will expand to include higher level skills, apprenticeships and updates on the skills plan.
Teaching and learning, teaching methodology, practical tools and tips, maintaining quality and all things teaching, feature on this agenda.
College experiences play a large role in this network, with colleagues from in and out of the region, presenting innovative work and best practice.
Group discussions feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges, as well as share best practice with the group members.
Virginia Barrett, Principal at Farnborough College of Technology, chairs this network and offers her experience and knowledge in the creation of each agenda.
