Network groups are free for teaching professionals and are delivered via Zoom. See below for dates and details.
AAL aims to develop a sustainable FE-focused community for learning, sharing and improving teaching practice through the Network. This will enable teaching professionals from a range of education and training providers to collaborate on small-scale action research with the sharing of practice through:
1. identifying what each individual practitioner wishes to develop, learn or improve upon;
2. collaborating with others to trial different methods;
3. working together to evaluate findings;
4. sharing learning and ideas with others through progress reports.
Bringing together professionals to collaborate, discuss and share best practice all around the topic of digital skills, an area very much as the forefront of education and training. The network allows colleges, training providers and other educational organisations to upskill their staff, discuss the ‘hot topics’ of the time and enable all those involved to take away new ideas, new knowledge and build a wider community of practice which supports professionals and learners in all things digital.

An opportunity for those professionals who are involved in teacher training as well as those advanced practitioners to come together to discuss the challenges that they may be facing and look at solutions as a group, sharing best practice as well as any new research and resources that has proven effective. The group gives professionals the opportunity to build a wider network in order to support individuals and organisations development within teacher training and the advanced practitioner role.

It is an opportunity to discuss sector challenges whilst forming collaborative strategies for the future of FE.
A primary goal at AAL is to enhance social inclusion. We understand how challenging and lonely it is to care for a loved one with mental health challenges. Covid legislation to stay at home impacts substantially on carers’ emotions and wellbeing.
Join us for a Covid Carers Conversation; an opportunity to share, relate and connect to others in similar situations via Zoom.
Our only rule is to be respectful of others. The conversation will be facilitated to encourage and balance sharing opportunities. Groups are capped at 12.
