Manufacturing And Product Design July 07 Briefing Session Manufacturing And Product Design July 07 Briefing Session Presentation Transcript

  • Diplomas Round 2 Gateway support Manufacturing and Product Design www.cogent- ssc .com www. improveltd .co. uk www. proskills .co. uk www. semta .org. uk www. skillfast - uk .org www.qca.org.uk School Improvement Service in Partnership with Lincolnshire County Council
  • Session Outline
    • Introduction, expectations re gateway process
    • Overview of Diploma requirements / QCA criteria / self assessment form
    • Partnership / individual activity
  • Key messages:
    • Success will be dependent on partnerships demonstrating they have rigorous and compelling plans to prepare for delivery of the diplomas
    • DfES expect providers to deliver Diplomas as part of a collaborative local partnership, rather than acting in isolation
    • Each partnership submits proposal to LA
    • LA likely to have to make judgment on bid prior to forwarding to DfES (ie determine strengths and rationale)
    • Submission to Eileen Chapman (email [email_address] ) BY 21 ST NOVEMBER 2007
  • Essential features:
    • Need to demonstrate clear understanding of each diploma line to be offered
    • Asked to provide a lead contact for the gateway process for single channel of communication (this does not mean a lead institution)
    • Can concentrate on particular Diplomas – do not have to deliver all 5 new lines (or all 5 from round 1)
    • Keen to see partnerships offer all 3 levels at the same time, but not ‘absolute’ requirement. Expect progression routes to be in place by the time young people complete their diplomas
  • What will you need to provide?
    • The bids will have 3 parts:
    • Partnership information form
    • Generic summary – your partnership’s 14-19 strategy; how your partnership is planning to meet the entitlement by 2013; partnership strategies for workforce development, employer engagement, IAG, facilities
    • Details for delivery of each specific diploma
    • We are surmising that they will still require
    • A full self assessment for each area for each diploma line, rating green, amber/green, amber/red or red and explaining:
      • Where you are now
      • What you need to do by September 2009
      • How you are going to bridge the gap
  • What do you have to do?
    • Remember that the bid is being prepared on behalf of the whole partnership – the bid does not belong exclusively to the lead contacts or their institution
    • Clarity of roles and responsibilities - ensure that roles of FE / WBL/ Schools / employers are appropriately identified
    • Check you understand what the diploma requirements are – use statements of content and QCA criteria
    • Carry out an internal self assessment against the 5 criteria – identify what is happening now – an honest appraisal of where you are now – grade each criteria
    • Identify where the gaps are between what you have in place / are doing now, and what is needed
    • State what you intend to do to in order to address those areas – ie a development plan
    • Clear statements with factual examples
    • Ensure that all gateway criteria are addressed
    • Assume no knowledge by reader!
    • Essential that each bid is ‘signed off’ by strategy group
    • Get someone to proof read
    • Continue with your planning once bid submitted – don’t wait for results
    • Meet with your partnership to:
      • Identify who is going to write the submission on behalf of the partnership – this is the lead contact (NOT the lead deliverer)
      • to share your self assessments
      • draft the relevant sections on the form FOR THE PARTNERSHIP
    • Identify where the gaps are between what you have in place / are doing now, and what is needed
    • State what you intend to do to in order to address those areas – ie a development plan
    • Rate yourself – green, amber/green etc
    • Decide who will sign off the submission – should be strategic group of 14-19 cluster - they need to check there is consistency in key messages across all diploma lines
    • Lead contact will need the self assessments for the partnership to enable them to answer any questions raised by the Regional panel
  • Components of Diploma Principal Learning Specific to each diploma – approx 50% of time should be ‘applied learning’ (application in work or work related contexts) Generic learning Functional skills En / MA / ICT assessed as discrete units Personal, learning and thinking skills – embedded in principal learning Project – assessed discretely Work experience Planning and Review Additional / specialist Learning Additional GCSE / A level /other academic qualifications Sector specific qualifications – specialism / complementary Optional units In 2008 – these will be drawn from existing qualifications

  • What is the Manufacturing and Product Design Diploma about? The Diploma in Manufacturing and Product Design aims to equip learners with the world class skills and knowledge necessary to make a valuable contribution to the UK’s manufacturing competitiveness within a global economy. It will introduce learners to the breadth of the manufacturing environment and industries through a holistic applied learning approach. The Diploma has 6 key drivers – contribute to meeting industry drivers and needs; contribute to sustainability and the future of the manufacturing sector; applied learning experience; transferability; choice and progression; and appeal to all

  • Information, Advice and Guidance
    • Use the overview provided by Connexions as a starting point - this focuses on generic current activity. BUT, you will also need to:
    • Show how you are keeping IAG current and up to date
    • Demonstrate that you are providing current and relevant IAG on range of careers and opportunities available including employment across the diploma sector
    • Demonstrate how you will ensure equality of access for all learners – see pages 51-52 of the DDP specification. How will you tackle stereotyping eg use of role models?
    • Demonstrate effective links with the relevant sectors to ensure that IAG reflects local provision and opportunities
    • All staff delivering the diploma, even if only a single unit will need to understand the diploma and the potential progression routes – see pages 41 – 50 of the DDP specification for information on progression routes
