OFSTED reports and #edtech innovation in FE. #ukedchat

This is going to be a very short post, partly in response to the recent FELTAG report that makes many suggestions about improving the uptake of edtech led curriculum innovation in UK further and adult education.  The FELTAG report has been authored by organisations and individuals across all facets of the sector, including OFSTED.

The report makes a pretty clear point that OFSTED, along with the other regulatory mechanisms, has prevented FE from properly investigating efficiency improvements.  I would suggest that they may even have caused organisations to go backwards.

Here are three colleges which have all experimented with the replacement of a certain percentage of face-to-face delivery, and links to OFSTED reports that make no explicit mention of this fact!

Thanet College (Now East Kent College) OFSTED Report

Kingston College OFSTED Report (Here is a related link to their Curriculum KUBE strategy resources)

Worcester College OFSTED Report (Here is Peter Kilcoyne talking about their approach at a Moodlemoot on Youtube)
