Transcript

  • 1. Creative and Media Diploma Champion, York. To inspire confident learners who will thrive in a changing world Karl Elwell
  • 2. The York Creative and Media Diploma Development Group
    • 7 York Schools
    • York College
    • Higher York
    • Learning City York
    • NYBEP
    • Diploma Business Champion
    • LA – other Diploma groups (and QA)
    • Regional – other consortiums
  • 3. How we’ve developed the Diploma
    • Gateway – expand DDG
    • Partnerships everything
    • Meetings every fortnight (minimum)
    • Select exam board
    • Build schemes of work
    • Link to businesses
    • Training – diploma-support.org.uk
    • IAG
  • 4. My observations:
    • Messages within schools is mixed
    • Understanding of w hy but…
    • Parents unsure
    • Teachers unsure
    • Pupils’ experience varies
    • L2 is proving popular
    • ..this will take time!
  • 5. ITT issues:
    • I have spoken to students at York University and York St John University.
    • They need educating!
    • Some wonder where Diplomas fit in – subject level/teaching level
    • Most have little knowledge of the Diploma …but realise its importance
    • The messages they receive from schools is mixed
  • 6. Next steps:
    • Continue ‘Champion’ post
    • Review my role
    • Review what further IAG is needed – for everyone
    • Assess pedagogical issues – and this is VITAL
    • Get it right for trainees – they need a ‘real’ experience – this may be difficult if teachers themselves feel ‘removed’ from the qualification – because they have no direct ‘experience’ (and in a lot of cases, ‘knowledge’) of it themselves.
    • The key thing for me is for trainees to understand how and why this is different to other qualifications out there and the potential that it holds…
  • 7. How might this happen?
    • Join a DDG
    • Visit consortiums
    • Understand links to industry
    • Become involved in assessment
    • Plan a scheme of work from the specifications
    • Speak to Diploma learners
    • Join: diploma-support.org.uk
    • Assessment of this may be difficult in the early stages and it may be easier to see gaining an ‘experience’ as a very valid ‘outcome’
  • 8.
    • KEY AREAS THAT MAY WANT TO BE EXPLORED BY TRAINEES…
    • Student recruitment strategy
    • IAG events – staff, parents, FE, HE and pupils
    • Collaboration between schools (how?)
    • Exam board selection and training
    • SSAT Training (diploma-support)
    • Specifications
    • Which staff deliver and how (also staff development issues)
    • Schemes of work (across 3 levels1 F, H, Advanced)
    • The role of a Verifier
    • Teaching environment(s)
    • Internal quality assurance systems
    • Integration of e-learning, (u-xplore?)
    • Employer Engagement
    • Business Enterprise Partnerships
    • LA provision
    • FE liaison
    • HE liaison
    • The effect upon Curriculum Deputies, Exams Officers, etc
    • Delivery of work experience
    • The experience of the Diploma learner
  • 9. Questions?
