TALIE Project

Teaching Adult Learners in Employment (TALIE) Project

ESFLearning and Skills Council

This co-financed project, which runs to March 31st 2007, is designed to build the capacity of the Skills for Life specialist teacher workforce in the sub-region.

It is an innovative project, devised to address the changing agendas in Skills for Life in general and among employed adults in particular.

Recruits have been attracted from vocational tutors, trainers and/or tutors in other academic areas, all of whom were: relatively new to Skills for life, interested in delivering Skills for Life in workplace settings in the future and already in employment as tutors but new to Skills for Life.

Seven West Yorkshire colleges led by Leeds Thomas Danby, have offered elements of the package, both individually and collectively. The elements are as follows:

  • Level 3 Certificates in Subject Support; core curriculum training; three customised development days/mini-conferences with workshops related to workplace delivery issues and the option of attendance on three-day Breaking down Barriers courses run by Lancaster University

  • Level 4 Subject Specialist Certificates alongside the Level 4 Workplace Skills for Life qualification from Lancaster University; core curriculum training and the three customised development days/mini-conferences. Level 4 beneficiaries were required to hold full generic teaching qualifications at Level 4 prior to joining the project.

  • A separate Train the Trainers short course for teacher educators who are currently or likely in the future to be delivering the Level 3 and/or Level 4 courses in West Yorkshire.

Partner Colleges: Bradford College; Calderdale College;Huddersfield Technical College; Joseph Priestley College;Leeds Thomas Danby; Park Lane College; Wakefield College.

Steering Group Representation: All partners plus LSC West Yorkshire; West Yorkshire Learning Partnership Network; Workplace Network.
