Client: Herefordshire and Worcestershire Group Training Association (HWGTA)
Project: Digital skills and pedagogy staff development and bespoke IT curriculum development
Herefordshire and Worcestershire Group Training Association (HWGTA) is an Ofsted Grade 1 training provider specialising in Apprenticeships and teacher, leadership and management development programmes delivered at training facilities in Hereford and Worcester city centres.
Real Time have been working with leadership and management at HWGTA to analyse learning technology and digital pedagogy skills and deployment and help leaders and mangers develop a strategy for wider use of technology in learning. This has been achieved by use of an innovative hybrid curriculum consisting of in-person and webinar-based staff development sessions followed by a reflective needs analysis.
The training was delivered to a mixed group of leaders, managers, lecturers, trainers and company associates enabling them to analyse current technology use and future possibilities for expansion and experiment with digital tools for engaging, active learning. Digital tools and pedagogies for polling and assessment, collaborative work, reflective practice, project planning and portfolio building were showcased and critically evaluated.
Real Time have also developed further digital programmes for the Association including Introductory, Intermediate and Advanced IT courses including MS Excel, Word, Outlook and PowerPoint and data security and social media presence programmes.
