The High-Performance Skills Coaches will use our unique insights into global skills systems and world-class practices to influence change in higher technical standards.
We will be exploring how other countries who have pioneering technical education systems, develop the skills of their technical education workforce to ensure high quality teaching standards.
We have partnered with NCFE, a leading provider of educational services and not-for-profit organisation. With a shared ambition to develop world-class educators, we hope that more young people, from all backgrounds, will be inspired to take up apprenticeships and technical education as a prestige route to success.
Inspire excellence in teaching, learning and assessment and advocate for world-class skills in every setting to support continuous improvement and innovation to develop highly performing and qualified apprentices and students ready for work.
Enhance teaching practice and play an influential role in the development of young people with exposure to world-class insights, access to techniques in skills development and enhanced approaches to standard setting and assessment.
Raise levels of achievement for students and apprentices by boosting formal attainment and motivation so students and apprentices aspire towards skills excellence and support the development of a deeper understanding of skills for the world of work.
Our team of High-Performance Skills Coaches will lead the delivery of a transformative knowledge and skills transfer programme. They will work with 200 educators from 40 colleges during the pilot to transform the quality of teaching, learning and assessment, embedding world-class practices and techniques
