Ufi and AELP are working together to develop insight into the sector and how technology can be used to enhance high-quality delivery.
The partnership will seek to influence the strategy and practice of organisations across the sector, producing a long-term shift in the adoption and deployment of high-quality digital pedagogies in the sector.
Together we will convene discussions and undertake a piece of national research to explore how independent training providers are using or planning to use technology and digital pedagogies in their delivery.
We will seek to understand barriers to adoption and how the funding and regulatory landscape can support innovation.
Our partnership will enhance the SectorShare platform, initially developed by Ufi and AELP to support independent providers with resources for online delivery during the pandemic, so that it provides greater support to the sector.
