  • Sync are working with ASCL Professional Development (ASCL PD) to deliver a series of blended learning sessions to school leaders. ASCL is a leading provider of CPD and leadership development across the UK – designing, developing and organising a range of conferences, short courses, nationally recognised qualifications and tailor-made services that are responsive to both government initiatives and professional needs identified by colleagues in schools and colleges.


    BLENDED LEARNING EVENT SERIES

    With schools now adapting to their students’ return to the classroom, how can they ensure learning has not been lost and adapt to this new style of learning? A blended approach will enable schools to have the best of both worlds, online and in-class teaching and learning.


    In this new three-part series, we will look at how schools can evaluate and plan their new strategy based on the Education Endowment Foundation’s (EEF) guidance Putting evidence to work: A School’s Guide to Implementation.


    Session 1 – Planning for the “new normal”

    OVERVIEW


    In part 1, participants will investigate how schools are addressing the transition to a blended approach to learning, the questions which need to be asked along with the pitfalls they might encounter. This blended approach impacts on many aspects of school life, such as the increased demand on the school’s environment and infrastructure. How can schools plan and implement the needs of this new style of learning?


    A digital approach to learning places many demands on a school, however, planning is essential if implementation is to be a success. Examples will show how this can be managed for the school whilst aligning this with the EEF guidance document.

    Session 2 – A change to workflow and workload?

    OVERVIEW


    Part 2 will look at how schools can plan and manage the implementation of a blended learning strategy from the aspects of teacher workload and workflow within a classroom. Discussions with teachers and leaders will evaluate the effect their strategy has had on their organisation and students’ learning and wellbeing.


    This digital strategy affects many aspects of school operations, from communication to collaboration and impact on work by reducing the time needed for the administrative burden along with the financial and environmental savings. We will discuss issues evidenced by the EEF guidance Using Digital Technology to Improve Learning and how this has been achieved through case studies.

    Session 3 – Addressing Children’s Needs

    OVERVIEW


    The recent lockdown and immediate implementation of online learning has had a marked impact on the needs of children and highlighted both challenges and opportunities for schools. Technology has enabled learning to be delivered in different styles to ensure all students have equitable levels of learning.


    In this session, participants will investigate how some schools have amended their planning and teaching strategies to enable students to have a more enriched and accessible learning experience.


    Based on the guidance from EEF, Using Digital Technology to Improve Learning, leaders will evaluate how they and their staff have adapted their delivery through lockdown and the impact that this has had on their students.

Latest Education News

Further Education News

The FE News Channel gives you the latest education news and updates on emerging education strategies and the #FutureofEducation and the #FutureofWork.

Providing trustworthy and positive Further Education news and views since 2003, we are a digital news channel with a mixture of written word articles, podcasts and videos. Our specialisation is providing you with a mixture of the latest education news, our stance is always positive, sector building and sharing different perspectives and views from thought leaders, to provide you with a think tank of new ideas and solutions to bring the education sector together and come up with new innovative solutions and ideas.

FE News publish exclusive peer to peer thought leadership articles from our feature writers, as well as user generated content across our network of over 3000 Newsrooms, offering multiple sources of the latest education news across the Education and Employability sectors.

FE News also broadcast live events, podcasts with leading experts and thought leaders, webinars, video interviews and Further Education news bulletins so you receive the latest developments in Skills News and across the Apprenticeship, Further Education and Employability sectors.

Every week FE News has over 200 articles and new pieces of content per week. We are a news channel providing the latest Further Education News, giving insight from multiple sources on the latest education policy developments, latest strategies, through to our thought leaders who provide blue sky thinking strategy, best practice and innovation to help look into the future developments for education and the future of work.

In Jan 2021, FE News had over 173,000 unique visitors according to Google Analytics and over 200 new pieces of news content every week, from thought leadership articles, to the latest education news via written word, podcasts, video to press releases from across the sector, putting us in the top 2,000 websites in the UK.

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
