Vocational Communities of Practice

LAUNCH EVENT: Thursday 3rd February at 3.30pm

We face a wicked problem* in the FES sector. For those of us who seek subject specialist collaboration opportunities, outside of our organisations, we often find that those spaces don’t exist.

We are a group of teachers and Advanced Practitioners in FE setting up subject specialist Communities of Practice for Further Education practitioners. We hope to establish an online space where vocational specialists can share resources, ideas, challenges and solutions. We intend to do this via a sharing platform as well as through online meeting spaces where you can bring your challenges and ideas to share with likeminded practitioners.

We invite you to join us for the launch of Vocational Subject Specific Communities and meet other practitioners on THURSDAY 3rd FEBRUARY at 3.30pm. Whether you are a trainee, NQT or established practitioner, everyone is welcome in this safe and equal place.

Please come and join us at the launch by registering here where we will share the concept in greater detail and you will have the opportunity to take part in an ideas room.

This is an amazing collaborative opportunity to connect with subject experts, share ideas and tackle wicked problems in your specialist area.

We hope to see you there.

*Wicked problem – A problem possibly in your subject area this is constant, that no one has managed to fix yet and potentially impacts on everything e.g., Sports students attend all fixtures and training but not all lessons or motivating English and maths students.
