We have been busy working with the Regional Support Centre in the South East to get the launch event organised for the 8 November. We will be there in force from the TechDis team along with our ambassador team who will be doing the bulk of the work with staff and students in the region.
Firstly we have to thank Guildford College for kindly providing us with a venue – a good start to what we hope will be an exciting project.
The Ambassadors team will include Sally Betts, project manager, faciltators Lilian Soonand David Sugden and me, Lisa Featherstone. The TechDis team will be Alistair McNaught who will be doing some technology demonstrations as well as offering advice and guidance and Simon Ball who will also be working with a Higher Education colleague to observe and evaluate the programme. Our colleagues from RSC South Eastwill also be there to lend a hand and provide the all important local and personal input.
The most important people there however will be the delegates. We have staff coming from a wide range of providers including local authority ACL centres, work based learning providers, Specialist Colleges and Uk Online Centres as well as mainstream FE colleges. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking and sharing of practice. The main focus of the day will be an introduction and then action planning with each provider.
We’re finalising the details now and all really looking forward to the day.
