Accelerating the adoption of digital technology in adult learning in wales
The nature of work is changing and with it the nature of adult vocational learning. At Ufi VocTech Trust, we share the Welsh Government’s ambition to integrate digital technology across post-16 education and training. Join us to discuss progress towards this ambition and what more can be done to accelerate progress.
With the release of the Digital 2030 framework, the Welsh Government set a clear benchmark: to transform learning by seamlessly integrating digital technology across post-16 education. Ufi shares the belief that a tech-enabled adult learning system has the potential to improve skills and the economy, for the benefit of individuals, employers and society as a whole. This session will explore how this transformation is progressing and ask:
- What has been learnt from the journey so far and how can we accelerate the pace of change?
- How are educators and training providers preparing for new modes of teaching and learning?
- Can we scale solutions, tools and techniques that work?
Our panellists are:
- Louise Rowland, Deputy Chief Executive, Ufi VocTech Trust (Chair);
- Jeff Greenidge, Director for Diversity, Association of Colleges;
- Alyson Nicholson, Head of JISC Wales; and
- Neil Tamplin, Managing Director, Aspiration Training
If you are involved in improving skills for work - whether in a community, local government, educational or business setting - we hope you will join us to make new connections, strengthen existing relationships and explore the funding and expertise Ufi can provide to improve skills for work across Wales.
We look forward to meeting you.
CEO, Ufi VocTech Trust
