Project is for Continuing Professional Development of VET professionals

This project would capture and track informal collaboration learning shared with peers and identify and celebrate learning champions as an innovative element in the Continuing Professional Development of VET professionals as informal learning is often unacknowledged but is an essential element of lifelong learning. Europe 2020 Strategy in the UK aims to have sustainable public finances and this project also supports this by recognising the inbuilt talent-pool that exists within VET organisations in the VET tutors – their knowledge and expertise is often not shared across their peers through in-house collaborative as there is a lack of formal mechanisms to support, track, reward and recognise informal sharing as a cost-effective CPD strategy. In addition, such sharing would also contribute to the UK’s aim to  improve the quality of vocational training on offer as another element of its Europe 2020 Strategy as another of its country specific recommendations.
