Activate Learning shares expertise with colleagues from South Africa
28 November 2018
Activate Learning welcomed colleagues from Northern Cape Urban TVET College in Kimberley, South Africa at the end of November as part of a British Council-funded project to improve learner employability skills.
Three managers and two teachers from the South African college spent a week visiting the Reading and both Oxford campuses and sharing expertise with Activate Learning staff.
The year-long project is focussing on developing ‘soft skills’ – the personal attributes that learners need to interact effectively with each other, teachers and employers – through the English and Maths curriculum in construction pathways taught at the Technology campus and the South African college.
This partnership is the first time that the Activate Learning attributes have been used in a formal setting outside of the UK and approximately 100 learners are on target to complete the programme, far exceeding the original goal of 40. At the end of the project, each learner will receive an ‘international attributes passport’ that records their individual achievements over the course of the year.
We are already planning a wider collaboration with Northern Cape Urban TVET College beyond the British Council project and have had interest from educational establishments in India for similar programmes.
