The Challenges of COVID-19 for Tutorial Staff and Students

The past weeks of lockdown have created challenges for both students and staff in relation to how they work and how they feel. Tutors have sought new ways of engaging with and supporting students, and students have experienced new ways of learning. While learning at home has a number of benefits, including giving structure to the day and supporting a student's general health and wellbeing, and helping prepare students for the next step of their journey, into further study, university, an apprenticeship or work, it has also tested the resilience and capabilities of students.

This webinar, hosted by Sally Wootton and Beej Kaczmarczyk, will share the views and concerns of tutors and students across the sector and how they are preparing to return to a new normal. It will also focus on the needs of ‘left behind’ students who have not always had access to the technology and support required to get the best out of remote learning, or who have missed face-to-face contact with their tutors and peers.

How FE colleges are being supported during the Covid-19 crisis

Ascentis in association with e-Memoir

The Coronavirus pandemic is having significant impacts on FE and Skills providers and their learners. With disruptions to their learning, it is imperative that FE colleges can continue to deliver learning and support to young learners, adults and apprentices.

This webinar, hosted by Beej Kaczmarczyk, will look at some of the measures that have been introduced to support FE colleges during this crisis, and consider what needs to be done to ensure the continuity of provision during and after the lockdown. It will focus some attention on where support is not currently being provided, e.g. for levy paying employers.

It will provide participants with the opportunity to share ideas on how best to plan ahead and will be followed by more interactive sessions on how to convert these ideas into actions with impact, e.g. collaborative planning, resource sharing, online learning.

Making the most of your Adult Education Budget allocation or contract

Ascentis in association with e-Memoir

The Adult Education Budget enables adults to access learning opportunities by funding the provision made by the FE and Skills sector, and yet there have been significant underspends on this funding source. At the same time research by the Learning and Work Institute shows that adult participation in learning has fallen significantly since 2010. More recently, City and Guild’s “Missing Millions” reports a falling number of adult learners in the last ten years including apprentices, with almost 18 million having outdated skills and almost one third not having received any workplace training in the last 5 years.

This webinar will give you an opportunity to reflect on and review successful strategies for the optimisation of AEB funding through effective planning, marketing and delivery of learning activities, including Ascentis on-line short courses, and especially on the importance of effective engagement with adults and ensuring a great learner experience.

It will also consider the opportunities provided by legal entitlements, local flexibilities, low pay waivers, devolution of the AEB, and the prospective “National Skills Fund”.

Implementing effective subcontracting arrangements in the FE and Skills sector

This is a partnership initiative between e-Memoir and the Fellowship of Inspection Nominee (Fin) a membership organisation that supports the post-16 education and training sector to strengthen the quality of provision and be fully prepared for external inspection.


This webinar is highly appropriate for post-16 education and training providers who are currently in subcontracting arrangements for a proportion of their provision or intend doing so in the future.


Major changes to subcontracting arrangements are likely to be implemented following the current consultation, and prime contractors need to ensure they are fully aware of how they need to adapt to these changing practices to meet ESFA and Ofsted requirements, and maintain the quality of their provision


The webinar, presented by Peter Stacey of Fin and Beej Kaczmarczyk of e-Memoir, will cover the following aspects of the subcontracting debate

• Subcontracting facts and figures
• Reasons for subcontracting
• Undertaking due diligence
• Supporting subcontractors - working in partnership
• Performance management and reporting
• Ofsted's expectations of subcontracting
• Best practice in subcontracting - hints and tips
• Dealing with failures and concerns
• Further support for providers – the role of Fin
