Covid-19 FET Practitioner Report Released
AHEAD has released a survey report that aims to shine a light on the difficulties that practitioners are experiencing in continuing to deliver their support and their programmes more generally.
It highlights key issues including a lack of engagement from a sizeable number of learners, a lack of continuity in the provision of disability support, difficulties for practitioners of juggling unfamiliar remote delivery with family responsibilities, a lack of practitioner experience with online delivery and the unsuitability of some programmes for online delivery (e.g. prison education, culinary courses).
But it also highlights the committed and innovative response of the FET community in their attempts to remain connected with their learners and showcases some of the ‘on the ground’ strategies that have worked.
