Hi everyone, if you have any questions please select 'all panellists and attendees' in the chat
Any questions or thoughts about what you might be doing at your college?
A standardised model that we can adapt to individual providers' needs
What do others think?
Could adapt RARPA models to deomonstrate progress in different subjects
do we know when the further guidance is due out?
We can ask about further guidance Jennifer
We are initially looking at something very similar to NCG in terms of the four pronged approach. Early thinking about using trained instructors/study coaches etc.. to provide additional support to small groups of learners based on enhanced initial diagnostic assessment to identify specific need.
Thanks for letting us know Jenny
Yes,Jenny - we are also working on enhanced IA and running training for teachers on this from next week.
Does anyone know whether there are any specific requirements for number of hours additional support that we need to provide?
great ideas re E&M, has anyone looked at students with SEND? and/or EHCP
Good question Phaedra. I will ask the panellists to comment.
I was thinking about potentially some community based projects for young people with SEND. Have an employer sponsor and use the funding the give some key staff the time to lead the projects on different topics that benefit the local area and build relationships with employers. Help re-build confidence lost during lockdown/shielding and encourage motivation and progression towards Preparing for Adulthood outcomes
We have had a clear steer from AoC that 'the same hour cannot be funded twice', which we took to mean that any funded activity must take place in addition to the 600 planned learning hours already funded. It appears that not all providers are taking this approach - some clarity on this would be useful
Thinking of really innovative projects that lead to students becoming excited about learning again
An example - a group of students work with local CEO to develop disability awareness and deliver a strategy to build EDI in their org. Build real life skills in E&M, digital, enterprise etc
We have received our opt in letter
Plumpton college: no letter as yet
Thank you for the response on my earlier question. It does still appear that there are different interpretations of 'additional hours' in the group. If learners are doing hours adiditonal to the hours they would normally do on a given day (e.g. lunchtime), would this be funded through the 16-19 tuition fund, even if the total planned hours for that learner remained between 540-600?
The funding is to allow Colleges to deliver small group sessions that build skills in M&E and any other skills now lacking due to Covid?
Just double checking I've understood
That is really helpful Jane - thank you
My understanding is that the money should be used for additional tutoring in Maths, English or any other programme where learning have been disrupted and deferred. Can we use the funding for non academic teaching or support staff. eg attendance officers?
And that tutoring can be carried out through different methods not just additional cassroom sessions?
Many colleges have been offering small group additional tutoring for years. The problem is getting learners to attend additional classes. Can the funding be used to offer 'rewards' to encourage learners to attend?
It seems like the accountability will be in recorded deliver time.
we haven't received a letter from the dfe
you have to get it off the portal
The letter is accessed through the ESFA Information Exchange
The guidance suggests that best practice is a group of 3. That's £450. That will buy approx 18 hours of teacher tuition and slightly more for support staff. I'm not sure that's enough to bridge the gap.
Thank you all, great webinar
Thanks everyone - really useful.
Thank you all
thanks all, good discussion
Thank you, that was very informative.
thanks everyone really helpful
