A core feature of the ONL project is our collaboration with schools, colleges and UTC’s (University Technology Colleges) who all work in the post sixteen sector. Our long term project goal is to offer this course in a format that can be used by these organisations. So, it is essential that we engage with a select group during the pilot stages. Lynne pictured centre in the above photo has been a champion for ONL. Working with her post sixteen BTEC students at The Watford UTC and testing the content as well as using it to underpin her teaching of the BTEC national qualification.
Apart from online badges, students also received statements of participation as part of their study and progression portfolio. Each student pictured above has helped the ONL team develop the content and discover where improvements can be made for the final version. None of this could have been accomplished without Lynnes enthusiasm and considered feedback.
