Beyond the work experience diary…

Skills 6

3:20 pm - 4:00 pm

This session will draw the experience of a number of FE colleges around the country that have moved away from paper-based recording of work experience. They are using a new tech solution – Navigate – to allow students to ‘tell their work experience story’ through online journals and digital assets (photo/video). This move to smartphone-based solutions has seen: – Improved the quality of work experience impact recording – Increased the % of completed journals – Delivered rigour to the recording of work placement hours and subsequent auditing This subject is particularly timely given the increase in WEXP hours that will be delivered in FE over the coming few years. I will be joined by representatives from FE colleges who will discuss the implementation and impact of their new online systems.
