Effective use of technology in further education award - Havant and South Down College

Havant and South Downs College have created the hugely successful digital platform – ‘The Teacher’s Takeaway’ a superb CPD resource for the FE sector.

The Teacher's Takeaway is a free online initiative. In collaboration with several other colleges, this resource enables educators to reflect together on how to adapt our pedagogy to better prepare students to live, work and study in a digital global society.

Recent on year results in English A*- C represents a 24.4% increase and Maths A* - C a 15.2% increase, which has led us to being one of the strongest providers in the sector for GCSE English and maths, having also been featured in FE Week as an example of best practice to raise student outcomes.

Teachers from several colleges are creating videos sharing their best practice on an array of themes. These organisations can access this resource in order to develop their own professional practice, and in turn, further develop the student experience, enabling students to develop digital literacy and indeed their study skills.

The Teacher’s Takeaway is an invaluable resource for staff to access relevant CPD at no cost and at a time convenient to the teacher. This resource is raising standards of teaching and learning across the sector.
