The Centre of Excellence, the first of its kind launched in the UK, draws on our unique insights into global skills systems and utilises NCFE’s expertise in curriculum development to mainstream excellence in skills development.
We have created this online CPD, hosted on our Skills Development Hub to provide educators with a series of resources that focus on the 7-step process of the WorldSkills UK Developing Excellence Framework that underpins our methodology for development in teaching and training.
We have partnered with NCFE the educational charity and leader in vocational and technical learning committed to powering a smarter education eco-system. We combine over 170 years of education experience with deep insight into what is needed and what works. From world-class qualifications and content to new assessment methodologies, from innovative technology platforms to partnership opportunities with our network of expert collaborators. We galvanise the education sector to shape the smartest solution for individual learning needs. In doing this, we’re working for a fairer education system for all learners to power inclusivity and choice.
