Certificate Programmes and Beyond: A Longitudinal Study Tracking the Pathways and Factors Influencing Students’ Choices
A collaborative project that will result in the delivery of a professional development programme to provide enhanced support for educators working with Māori and Pasifika learners in adult literacy and numeracy.
This project focuses on testing a new collaborative approach to mentoring between an employer, Downer NZ, andtwo ITO's: Connexis and Primary ITO
This project identified 10 effective strategies that teachers can use within a blended learning environment to enhance learner engagement and achievement.
This highly collaborative project builds on successful work we funded in 2008, ITO Workplace Assessment Structures, led by the Industry Training Federation. The project reviews the principles identified in the earlier study and explores how these principles have been put into practice through a series of case studies at the partnering ITOs.
