South Downs College



As the digital future for further education and skills continues to grow and the opportunities to embed digital learning into college provision increases, this network aims to support colleges with the implementation of digital learning and highlight how technology can support teaching, learning and assessment.

A selection of external organisations have attended, including, The Tech Partnership and several external digital learning consultants. Numerous colleges have shared their digital journey and their pioneering approaches to embedding digital learning.

Group discussions and activities feature at every network, giving delegates the opportunity to raise any concerns or challenges, as well as share best practice with the group members.

Iain Gibbins, E-learning Manager at Guildford College, chairs this network and offers guidance and support in the development of each agenda.
