The skills required to be effective in the workplace are changing, therefore – ‘what people learn’, ‘how people learn’ and the ‘process of funding learning’ must change with it.
Simply put, jobs, which did not exist previously, are being created each day.
This coupled with the fact that the population is growing at an unprecedented rate is adding pressure to public services in attracting and retaining top talent.
The UK government has responded to these challenges by introducing new learning pathways (Apprenticeships, Traineeships and 24+ Loans) aimed at re-engaging adult learners, who with additional training can play a key role in this ever-changing landscape.
This presentation will provide an overview of how government funding was used to target a gap in the school workforce by training a group of learners aged 24 and older through a blended learning solution. Funding streams, recruitment and retention of learners, curriculum design and blended learning delivery will each be explained to emphasize how technology can be utilized to build a highly effective future proof workforce.
