Gateway to excellence opens for further education staff in UK

by | Jun 20, 2007 | Articles

There are many broad interpretations about what e-learning is and isn’t. In this project we are keen to uncover all of the opportunities that technology provides to assist learning in any form.

The QIA Excellence Gateway – http://excellence.qia.org.uk – gives further education staff access to an unrivalled range of high-quality guidance and information on effective practice to help them further develop their own skills and professional knowledge.

The Excellence Gateway will benefit a range of people right across the further education spectrum – from quality managers in further education colleges to teaching assistants in community learning centres. Key features of the Excellence Gateway include:

  • Access to thousands of case studies, good practice guides and support documents.
  • Ability for further education staff to upload resources and materials that will benefit others in the sector. Every resource can be rated by any registered user.
  • A chance to take part in discussion forums where any issue related to working within further education can be debated.
  • A comprehensive directory of suppliers of improvement services to the further education system.

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

By popular demand, the 2019 Learning Health Check season has now been extended until Monday 16th September. There is still enough time to complete your review and revisiting regularly can also help learning professionals to measure progress year on year, highlight areas where improvement is needed and provide evidence to build a business case for change.
