E-LEARNING FOR TEACHERS AND SUPPORT STAFF AS PART OF A HIGH QUALITY BLENDED LEARNING EXPERIENCE
Equitable Education is in the process of developing exciting and innovative e-learning materials to be used as part of a high quality blended learning experience for professionals in education. These e-learning materials will enable teachers and support staff to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding in key areas for target groups of pupils for whom closing the gap is an issue.
Colleagues will be able to engage in these e-learning materials in a flexible, cost effective manner at a time convenient for them. They will be able to test their learning against the content of the e-learning course and get instant feedback on areas they still need to focus on. Throughout the course, participants will be expertly guided by Equitable Education on how to apply this learning so that it directly impacts on pupils' progress or a particular area of work as defined by the course. Equitable Education will also provide ongoing specialist support and guidance throughout their learning experience. The on-line course may be supplemented by additional reading or assignments. After a period of application, course participants will attend a face to face session facilitated by their tutor from Equitable Education, which will focus on the further refinement and practical application of their learning.
Opon successful completion of the course, participants will receive a certificate which they can use as part of their evidence for performance management purposes and to show how they meet particular standards of the new Teacher's Standards.
