The rollout of the T levels is arguably one of the biggest shake-ups that post-16 education has ever witnessed and therefore, a robust response is required.
SIDIS Academy has developed a solution, a progressive, one-stop learning platform, developed to help providers manage the challenges in delivering T Level qualifications and Industry Placements.
In working closely with colleges, SIDIS Academy has understood the key challenges of rolling out this new programme and has consequently developed a customisable and multi-faceted platform to deliver a high quality, blended learning approach. It is the first of its kind to bring together the all-important triage of students, colleges, and employers to address the skills gaps in the labour market.
As the launch of the T Levels puts increased pressure on providers during this week’s enrolment process, SIDIS Academy offers students the ability to create their own account, activating the automated assignment of relevant content, based on the student’s T Level route and specialism. It is also able to manage classroom events, webinars, delivery of all online learning for each pre-populated T Level framework and empowers students to log their own work placement evidence. The (shared) learning library content is aligned specifically to employer occupational standards and has been carefully curated to develop users’ interpersonal skills, technical knowledge, and social behaviours. Employers identified these as critical for the future workforce.
With employability at the heart of the student’s journey, SIDIS Academy offers providers the power to connect with Industries across the UK, (and potentially the world) enabling a seamless transition from education to employment. Along the way, the college will not only benefit from the platform’s capability to generate comprehensive learner analytic reports, an OFSTED must, but also, a growing network of T Level providers and employers to share best practice and resources.
“The platform exceeded our expectations! The SIDIS team has a clear understanding of the T Levels, and this is by far the only solution we’ve seen that solves all the challenges we face, not just for us at South Devon College, but also those that our employers and students come up against. We’re excited to start implementing the SIDIS Academy. No longer will we have the headache of having to use multiple systems or trying to fit a square peg into a round hole!!” – Kerry Pilato, Senior Industry Placement Coordinator – South Devon College
Businesses can also use the Academy to optimise their work experience provision, training resources and nurture recruitment opportunities for the future. This opens a whole new world of possibilities for employers.
