Welcome to the Excellence Gateway’s Development and Innovation in TVET exhibition site
This exhibition site brings together examples of innovative practice in the design and delivery of Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) using the experience and insights of over 40 employer-provider partnerships. It features:
- case studies, reports and videos demonstrating key aspects of effective and innovative employer-provider partnerships;
- the findings of a small enquiry into pre-vocational provision, supported by a suite of six case studies and illustrating the features and characteristics of pre-vocational provision.
A framework ‘Developing occupational expertise for contemporary work’ is in the final stages of development. Illustrating the key elements for developing occupational expertise through employer-provider partnership working, it will be of value to organisations seeking to transform their offer, develop their people and grow their business.
The Two Way Street area illustrates how providers and employers have built their strategic partnerships, the impact this is having and the lessons they have learnt.
The Teach Too section illustrates the impact when occupational experts work in partnership with providers taking the time to teach, support learners and/or shape the curriculum, working alongside teachers and trainers.

A strong TVET system also supports pre-vocational provision. The final section gives you access to a suite of six case studies and a summary report detailing the specific features and conclusions of the Foundation’s inquiry into the design and delivery of pre-vocational programmes.
It’s about work… Excellent adult vocational teaching and learning, the report of the Commission on Adult Vocational Teaching and Learning (CAVTL) identified the principles, characteristics and distinctive features of effective vocational teaching and learning. Expressions from the report such as ‘Two-way Street’, ‘Teach Too’, ‘clear line of sight to work’ and ‘dual professional’ have become part of the language of VET professionals. The recommendations in the original report, together with the One Year On Review, have formed the basis for the Foundation’s VET programmes. Further background information is available at the CAVTL tab at the top of this page.
The Foundation has a wide range of services including the Future Apprenticeships programme which supports the professional development of staff involved in apprenticeships. Visit the Future Apprenticeships portal for courses, webinars and further information and the Future Apprenticeships provider toolkit for models of effective practice.
