Laura Ellis

I have some concerns too about induction and transition, I would be really grateful for any ideas or good practice
Valerie Senior
30:05
Our local authorities are happy for some reviews to be delayed
Karen Dorow
30:54
We are working to produce virtual tours for transition learners, along with summer activity packs being sent but would be keen to hear from others on new plans
Nicki Fillingham
30:58
Evolve College using Teams providing a full timetable of lessons Monday to Thursday, supported by Support staff. Fridays we provide drop in / chat sessions and boredom busting activities. All online lessons are well attended
penny chislett

How are you funding all the additional hours of support and AT?

Buxton and Leek are starting virtual open events from the 11th May, we will be working through Blackboard
Michelle Lobb
35:11
Hi Bridgend we are hosting a virtual open event on 14th may so would be good to know how your event goes
Karen Dorow
35:43
City College Plymouth hosted a Virtual Open Day on Saturday, which went really well, after a few slight technical hitches.
sheila Hughes
36:31
Happy to share, we will present re the content of the programmes and answer any questions. Do like the idea of a virtual tour.
Melonie Davies
38:14
Bridgend College are teaching and supporting remotely via Google classroom, hangout meet and other platforms and have sent out work packs to our ILS Learners. We are maintaining weekly support with approximately 100 learners in addition to the 400 being supported weekly by our wellbeing teams. We aren't carrying out any face to face activity as we don't currently have EHCP's ( Welsh equivalent IDP's) yet. Thanks for the comments re the open evening. Really looking forward to trying this!
Charlotte Barratt
39:05
Denise, do all students attend all 3 days?
Karen Dorow
39:07
Is there any advice on PPE for tutors working with the EHCP learners that struggle with understanding social distancing?
Lizz Tattle
40:04
Following on from Karen's comment, as anyone got students in that require Personal Care?
Karen Dorow
40:33
We definitely do
Joanne Leak
40:42
I would be interested too please re PPE and Personal Care
Julie Shaw
42:37
Buxton and Leek College. Yes I would be interested in PPE whilst staff are doing personal care too
penny chislett
44:07
Thank you Polly,
Laura Ellis
46:10
That's amazing, Denise, well done Newcastle!
Charlotte Barratt
47:25
That would be great Polly!

48:01

Michelle Lobb
48:03
Yes please that would be amazing Polly
Sallyann Abdelmoula
48:28
I would welcome a transition webinar
Julie Shaw
48:40
Buxton and Leek College. One parent I interviewed last week, asked if her son could have his transition in the summer or September for the first few weeks?
Ashleigh Raw
48:43
Transition webinar would be great
John Noble
49:15
I agree more discussion on transition would be useful
Lorraine Godkin
49:49
Also concerns about learners at the top end of EHCPs i.e 25 year old and how now to support their transition and if there is anyway to extend the EHCP or funding for their education
Lizz Tattle
52:05
You aren't on Virgin are you?

Mandy Davis
57:43

Julie Eddy
59:07
Individual learning packs have been a bit hit with our learners. I think they enjoy receiving those in the post.
Karen Dorow
59:42
Will these presentations all be shared afterwards please?
Gemma Marshall
59:57
This is a crucial time for working towards preparing for adulthood EHCP objectives e.g. travel training- any suggestions?
Julie Eddy
01:00:13
Do people have many learners who have no access to technology?
Monica Marongiu
01:00:21
Great stuff. Thanks for sharing
Harriet Hadley
01:00:47
Hi everyone, this is the link for Nicola's video that was cut short. We will also email this to you after the session. https://prezi.com/v/yk6n2jwn5avg/welcome-case-study-our-experience-of-home-learning/
Sophie Maziere
01:01:04
Julie - a few but we have managed to loan them college equipment.
Kendra Wilkins
01:01:04
Hi everyone p,
Susan Burns
01:01:08
Fab thank you
Kendra Wilkins
01:01:14
a good app we use at Harlow college is called Showbie
Gwen Hurrion
01:01:22
Yes we have a list of about 60 who have requested laptops
Karen Dorow
01:01:24
We have learners with no access to technology and have provided laptops and getting dongles sourced, as well as posting them workpacks.
Sophie Maziere
01:02:04
We have found issues with families trying to share laptops for work, school, college etc. Adds to the family pressure as well.
Geoff Saunders
01:02:10
Julie, we do a tLewisham College. We're sending out packs of paper resources with instructions for the parents/carers
Julie Eddy
01:02:47
Thanks everyone, it seems we're all doing similar things where possible.
Val Bolam
01:02:58
Great that we can see the link to Nicola's video. Can we all have this presentation too ? Lots of info on there that I think would be helpful.
Louise Ball
01:03:29
If you supply laptops and dongles, how does the ICT team monitor the appropriate usage of ICT?
Gemma Thomas
01:03:34
Is there any guidance or information on how to provide grades for students assuming that these progammes (Pathways to Work and Independent Living for us) are required to be assessed in the same way as GCSEs? Everyone had completed different amounts prior to lock down for example
Hazel Hanslip
01:03:50
We have a few issues with shared / no technology / wifi limitations. Sending out paper-based activities or practical activities to these students. Parents Whatsapping photos of what people have done. Also have set up a community page on Facebook for students to share what they are doing with each other.
Karen Dorow
01:04:18
Re ICT, they go through a VPN usually which ensure our ICT team can monitor
Geoff Saunders
01:05:21
My LSW phones the parents regularly to check the students are Ok.
Ashleigh Raw
01:06:11
Has contacting learners via phones been an issue for other colleges? Do you use other platforms?
Julie Shaw
01:06:31
We are using Cisco Jabber
Hazel Hanslip
01:06:46
We have been using phones, email and our online journals via SeeSaw
Geoff Saunders
01:07:29
Relating learning to home life works really well as the parents can buy-in to it really easily. We phone through Skype so there's ni issue with personal phone numbers
Ashleigh Raw
01:07:32
My Learning support practitioners are not able to use personal phones and do not have access to work mobiles, has anyone had success with Teams to offer support?
Karen Dorow
01:08:08
We managed to get college mobiles just before lockdown for all Course Leads in Skills Development, and they communicate closely with the Learning Support Assistants and Tutors
Melonie Davies
01:08:09
Yes, only 2 staff from a team of 78 had access to work mobile phones. If email and other digital contact isn't working we are referring to the two workers covering mobile calls or our wellbeing colleagues as needed.
Lizz Tattle
01:08:23
We are allowing staff to use mobiles using 141 but prefer them to use Teams as it is covers them more
Lizz Tattle
01:09:09
We've also found texting the student or scheduling a weekly time before you call so they pick up - teenagers don't pick up unknown numbers!
Ashleigh Raw
01:09:10
Yes we have issues with contact via mobile, we have one Learning support practitioner who can follow up with lack of contact.
Martin Walsh
01:09:33
Good point Lizz!
Ashleigh Raw
01:09:42
Good advice, thank you. We did have issues with learners not picking up when phoning
Maisie Coutet
01:12:31
Hi, Where to we find this form please?
Lizz Tattle
01:13:33
We've given out approx. 150 laptops to students last week
Charlotte Barratt
01:16:55
We have handed out all of our laptops before lockdown and have donated all PPE from labs, workshops and salons to the frontline. Really hope there is support to reinvest.
Julie Shaw
01:28:05
I agree with that Lynn. It was too much at the beginning for Parents as all Tutors were sending work
Hazel Hanslip
01:28:53
Yes, we only have the personal tutor and FS tutor sending work once a week.
Julie Eddy
01:29:54
We're also limiting the amount of work with key tutors maintaining control with our SEND learners.
Helen Green
01:30:23
hoHow do you host on line drop in sessions for transition?\
Julie Eddy
01:34:03
Are the virtual learning walks not causing anxiety?
Julie Eddy
01:34:19
Good
Julie Shaw
01:34:24
We do that during Enrichment Lynn. Students really enjoy their dance session.
Julie Eddy
01:35:35
It really shows the vast difference in SEND provision across the sector
Julie Addison
01:35:42
Thank you all for your input :)
Nicola Lace
01:35:55
Really enjoyed that -thanks Lynn
Julie Eddy
01:36:00
So interesting, thank you to all speakers
Geoff Saunders
01:36:02
I think v. learning walks would have to be explained very clearly to teachers - that they are supportive and developmental - otherwise they could add another layer of anxiety. But if handled well, they could be good.
Monica Marongiu
01:36:05
Thank you so much everyone. This was incredibly useful.
Geoff Saunders
01:36:07
