Sector transformation presents all colleges with an opportunity to rethink and enhance their proposition to their learners, employers and staff.
Therefore our development guidance builds on the foundation provided by the essentials and aims to elevate a college to new heights. This allows you to redirect your college’s time and financial resources to help focus on the heart of your organisation, your learners.
Be part of our shared data centre and use our data archiving framework. Take advantage of space in a fully managed data centre that has dual resilient 10Gbit/s connections to the Janet core network as part of our co-location service.

We can also provide a range of other consultancy support services designed to help you optimise the efficiency and impact of technology in your organisation.
Allow researchers and teaching staff access to the rich resources within Archives Hub and Zetoc. Support your library by making use of the Journal Usage Statistics Portal (JUSP), which provides a single home for libraries to view, download and analyse their usage reports - essential for evidencing the value of journals.
One of the main areas of transformation is the ability to enhance the delivery of teaching, learning and assessment to meet learners’ increasing digital expectations.
Through our team of subject specialists, we can work with your college directly to embrace building the digital capabilities of your staff, share expertise on how to approach blended learning through the curriculum, to include the management of assessment.
To help you keep abreast of current trends and research, you can also access detailed Jisc guidance, reports and insights across various areas such as developing an organisational approach to digital capability and also hear key trends arising from a significant piece of Jisc research with 85 institutions and 27,000 student responses via our digital student tracker.
You can also keep up to date with effective digital practice via our updated breaking through: stories of effective digital practice from UK further education (FE) and skills report, or get involved joining the FELTAG Coalition, join the #FELTAG conversation on Twitter or hear more about the AoC Beacon Awards communities of practice.
