A case study on the Teach Too local collaborative project at Bishop Auckland College

Summary

Partners explored how emerging developments in the engineering sector are impacting on skills requirements in the local area and the need for a collaborative training system.
Employers and providers worked together to plan the curriculum, deliver training in the classroom and in the workplace and provide work shadowing opportunities for teachers and trainers. About 40 teachers have benefited from workplace shadowing opportunities. In one instance, this has led to the employer training college staff on their equipment and then utilising the teaching skills of the college staff to deliver in-house training to their new employees. The project has also contributed to reduced unemployment in the area with individuals better prepared for available job roles.
