Teaching, Learning and Assessment for ER
Welcome to the eighth edition of the assessor E-bulletin, an online flyer designed to share good practice and ideas in Teaching, Learning and Assessment across Central College.
This bulletin is designed to give you a host of ideas to help and guide you with regards to all things ER related. It will be sent out every six/eight weeks and put together by the Teaching And Learning Coach for ER, Wayne Daniels.
Final push for summer!
It also means the final hurdle is upon us, with learners scrambling to the finish and a well-deserved rest not far off in the distance.
To help get you over this final furlong, Assessor HQ has put together some useful information, upcoming events, fun resources ('Speak Up Stay Safe' game is great), Apprenticeship Levy information as well as other Employer Responsive related goodness!
All of that and a split screen camper, we do spoil you!

So what’s stopping the UK’s women going into engineering?
engineer, and chief executive of the Women’s Engineering Society, including big employers such as British Gas, Network Rail and Crossrail. What’s holding them back is a lack of knowledge of what engineering is and a lack of advice.
There's no telling how many women who could have made successful engineers never even considered it as a career option, but there must be plenty out there. Just 9% of the engineering workforce and 6% of registered engineers and technicians are female. That is the lowest percentage of female engineering professionals in Europe, way behind the leaders, Latvia, Bulgaria and Cyprus, with nearly 30%. click me
