The innovative use of IT to help students at City of Wolverhampton College improve their English and maths skills has been praised in a national competition.

The college came second in the Learning Impact Awards – organised by the Blended Learning Consortium (BLC) – which recognise how organisations use IT to enhance learning and tailor resources and teaching to the needs of individual students.

As part of its drive to improve English and maths skills, the college’s technology enhanced learning team (TEL) developed a series of courses, using BLC resources, to enable students to carry out independent learning and develop communication, digital and social media skills to make them more employable.

Conrad Taylor, e-learning manager at the college, said: “We are leaders in providing a high-quality digital experience for our students and this award recognises our commitment to the use of technology to enhance learning, as well acknowledging the hard work, dedication and skills of the TEL team involved in the project.”

Since the project was introduced by the college in 2015 around 700 students have benefitted from the scheme.

The TEL team has also been recognised nationally by Jisc – a membership organisation providing digital solutions for UK education and research – for the impact its approaches have had on learners’ digital experience during their time at the college and has been invited to facilitate a workshop and share best practice with further education managers at the Association of Colleges annual conference later this month.
