Apols - heres link to Student https://rise.articulate.com/share/SMzndTUzxwhIl-iXnVLzKozWookm5HEJ
how did you begin to set up the digital level up courses? Were they optional or mandatory and did you deliver across college or within specific areas? I think that's a really important point, we train staff well but often forget to explicitly "train" the students on those professional digital skills!
Many of our students will be recent recruits from schools. Is there any evidence that they are better-equipped and better-trained in ICT than older students or recent arrivals? Is there an argument for creating ICT skills passport to pass between institutions? SV
Re Level Up is too long to write here. Feel free to contact afterwards to discuss - no problem :)
Thank you I definitely will take you up on that and contact after! :)
We are setting up a national Level Up initiative in a Team as part of our Edtech Demonstrator program - teaching people how to do it and also participate with us
Just wow, wow and wow!

Are the rise.articulate courses free to anyone to do?
Yes - you can use if helpful - but links and guides are more aligned to our college - but if help yes :)
Sorry that was addressed to @Sarabjit

Language is non intimidating. Gentle steps initially.
Very good enhancement to any teacher training courses

I have some of these - well worth doing. I do like a badge.
as a Trekkie , I expected Debra to get these:) and v well deserved :)
This looks great - I wasn't aware of the badging process and these training opportunities!
not enough FE Colleges are...hence this session , and Vikki chapter in the AOC /UFI E-BOOK :)
Does the training have to be done through the college or can it be done independently?
Anyone can do these badges
