OTLA North East and Cumbria

The Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment OTLA North East and Cumbria programme was funded by The Education and Training Foundation and managed by a consortium led by Success North.

The programme enabled groups of providers to access collaborative development grants to investigate and develop teaching, learning and assessment approaches for the benefit of learners. The inception meeting took place on the 17th of March 2017 at Newcastle College, with representation from 19 education and training providers.

The collaborative partnerships comprised providers from different sectors, including FE, work based learning, offender learning and community settings, that came together to develop and share approaches for ensuring outstanding practice across a range of contexts and topics. Projects were be informed by relevant practice-based research leading to improved learning and classroom practice, demonstrable through enhanced learner outcomes.
