The CCF project at Newton Rigg College was set up to establish a staff confidence project in using digital technologies, teaching, learning and assessment. The project has had demonstrable effects on improving confidence and competence in online delivery across all departments, as evidenced by the audit before and after and mentoring action plans.
The project has led to the following outcomes:
- Increase in staff participation in training opportunities to develop digital skills and capacity.
- Facilitated access to a bank of wider resources.
- Peer mentoring and coaching to further upskill teaching staff in a supportive way.
- Opportunities for CPD for all staff following the announcement that the college is closing staff have really embraced the internal and external training offered to help them move forward into their new jobs.
Joanne Tate, Quality lead for CCF at Newton Rigg said:
"We are very pleased that 86% of our teaching staff took part in relevant training to upskill their IT skills and confidence through the CCf bid.
We have changed the observation process to be a more supportive learning /coaching walk and this has allowed us to monitor the quality of online lessons whilst at the same time providing support to staff in the form of peer mentoring to address areas of weakness in a pro-active way."
