A dedicated team covering all 5 Core Skills’ areas. The fact that Learning Support is part of the same faculty has been significant. To realise the idea of delivering Core Skills online considerable technical support was required. JEVC: What the Core Skills team did: JEVC: What the Core Skills team did Identified the problem: HN students often lack the necessary Core Skills for their chosen area Attended the launch of the Personal Development Planning unit and opened a dialogue with SQA With colleagues in other faculties drew up a matrix to show how Core Skills (could be) integrated JEVC: What the Core Skills team did next: JEVC: What the Core Skills team did next Set up 4 pilots, one in each faculty: Social Care, Multi Media, Electrical Engineering, Working with Communities Ring fenced time to develop the learning materials and to support vocational staff Made time and resources to set up the website using the SQA Academy, Moodle model. Invited the Principal to make a short video to reflect his personal commitment to Core Skills Impact on students: Impact on students There was a good level of attendance in all four pilot groups. Students were very positive about the Moodle learning approach. The student feedback was particularly positive about the individual interviews and the focus on their priorities for learning. The students enjoyed the workshop format of Core Skills delivery. Other learning needs have been identified which include Study Skills and Maths. Overall, the students have not been as ready to work independently and take responsibility for their own learning as we'd hoped. Students have varying degrees of expertise on computers and not surprisingly this has been significant 5 things we have learned so far: 5 things we have learned so far You need to let go if you are offering PDP - students follow their own interests Moodle works. Students can create their own PDP independently and individualised choices can be followed The virtual ‘cupboard’ can house more attractive resources. Eg video and audio clips which can be used 24/7 Core Skills workshops using Moodle allowed students to work at what they wanted to work at Contextualised resources can be developed for each framework What we intend to do next: What we intend to do next Keep it and use it again!
