FELTAG sets out an ambitious agenda for improving the use of digital technology in the FE and skills sectors. To realise this agenda sector bodies need to work together to enable providers to use innovative new technology to improve the learner experience.
Why we are working in this area
The UK government wants to see greater uptake of technology in the FE and skills sectors - key to the FELTAG agenda. What's more learners need digital skills because employers are demanding them. Institutions are also facing a changing learning landscape and need greater resilience.
Find out more about the history of FELTAG.
There are a number of people who will benefit from this work. These include:
- Learners - who will benefit from technology that supports their needs
- Employers - who will get candidates with better digital skills
- Teachers - who will get opportunities to improve their digital skills
- Institutional leaders - who can decide which technologies to invest in
Through the FELTAG co-design challenge, we want this group of sector bodies to be able to combine their efforts effectively and for the UK government to buy in to the direction taken by this group.
Also key to this work is that institutions feel they are able to respond effectively to the FELTAG agenda. We also want to see a measured increase in the update of online delivery and the use of digital technology.
What we're doing
Many colleges and providers have embraced the FELTAG agenda and worked towards making its recommendations a reality. We have produced a guide, The evolution of FELTAG, which showcases some of the initiatives inspired by FELTAG and provides practical examples of effective technology-enhanced practice from across further education and skills.
Enhancing assessment and feedback with technology: a guide for FE and skills, shows how technology can add value to assessment and feedback processes in the FE and skills sector and provides practical advice and guidance including a number of effective practice examples.
We're looking for examples on behalf of the sector that will evidence how further education and skills have embraced technology in the spirit of FELTAG - find out more and how to share yours.
The FE and skills coalition group meet twice a year to share relevant activities from FELTAG partners. To stay up to date, join the FE and skills coalition group mailing list or contact Rob Bristow ([email protected]) for more information.
