An exciting new partnership
"Heart of Worcestershire College and the Blended Learning Consortium are delighted to announce a new partnership with Pearson Publishing to support online delivery of CPD for staff and member colleges of the Blended Learning Consortium as well as for the wider FE sector.
Colleges which choose to join this partnership will immediately get access to a wide range of high quality online CPD resources in areas such as statutory guidance, leadership development, classroom skills and pastoral care.
This partnership will work with the same democratic principles as the Blended Learning Consortium, giving subscribing colleges the opportunity to propose new areas for development, vote on these and have their staff involved in writing the resources.
We see this as a very exciting and valuable partnership which makes use of the existing resources and delivery platform that Pearson publishing have developed alongside the efficiency savings and voice in shaping developments that the Blended Learning Consortium brings."

Monitor impact, provide evidence
The CPD Library makes it easier to monitor training and development across your whole institution. The online learning management system provides live graphs of progress, assessment scores and self-evaluation, helping to identify successes or problem areas. We also provide regular pdf reports to further analyse performance, which can then be used as convenient evidence for inspection or circulated to staff, departments or colleges. All reports are carefully filed for you in a secure online repository.
Running any new programme of staff development requires leadership and management. We have helped to minimise the time and effort you and your senior colleagues will need to devote this by providing special courses on:
A democratic library
We are always adding new courses to the CPD Library and value your suggestions and contributions. As with the BLC-FE student resources, each college will be invited to submit ideas for new courses to be provided for the following year. The most popular suggestions will then be developed into courses.
