NTfW Teaching, Learning and Assessment Conference – Strengthening Skills for Success
will take place on Thursday 30 March 2017
at the All Nations Centre, Sachville Avenue, Heath, Cardiff, CF14 3NY
The inaugural NTfW Teaching, Learning and Assessment Conference, ‘Strengthening Skills for Success,’ is open to all Work-based Learning practitioners in Wales and will focus on providing professional development opportunities. It is aligned to the NTfW Quality Improvement Project, supported and part-funded by Welsh Government through the European Social Fund.
Setting out to explore the future landscape for teaching, learning and assessment across the Work-based Learning sector in Wales, the Conference will highlight the the role of vocational pedagogy, to enhance the WBL learning experience by revitalising teaching, learning and assessment strategies. Practical workshops, and opportunities for discussion, will support practitioners to further enhance their knowledge of innovative teaching and assessment methods.
NTfW is delighted to welcome the Minister for Skills and Science, Julie James AM, to deliver the keynote address. The Conference also extends a warm welcome to Mark Evans Her Majesty’s Inspector, Estyn, who will examine effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies; while Linda Chorley, City & Guilds, will explore the benefits of revitalising pedagogy in vocational delivery. NTfW also welcomes Angela Jardine, Chair of the Education Workforce Council, to communicate what registration and professional recognition will mean for the WBL practitioner.
The Conference has been specifically designed for Work-Based Learning practitioners in Wales and will provide a hands-on experience with practical tips to enhance everyday working practices. Eight workshops, based on practical themes, will offer plenty of ideas to support practitioners in work-based settings.
