Allowing educators, students and employers to work collaboratively on projects.
The Skills Gap Programme is an exciting opportunity to bring together educators, students and employers to work collaboratively on projects which are generated through the programme, by participating teachers, with genuine business input, tested in a real classroom situation.
The programme’s longer term aim is to help reduce the well-documented skills gaps in key related industries and high youth unemployment, by inspiring and training teachers to prepare the next generation of young professionals, encompassing industries such as engineering, manufacturing, food technology, design and architecture. Through the programme, businesses have the opportunity to support schools in developing skills for their future workforce.
The challenge was technically complex as there is a requirement to finally balance the collaborative elements across many different participating parties with the need for great usability and appropriate security.
Project support was provided by IndigoBlue in both the requirements refinement, the testing and delivery, with IndigoBlue working with both Technical Labs and Design and Technology.
Each participating party has access to a secure area, where work can be uploaded for assessment and review, with a communication dialogue designed to support showcasing, commenting and mentoring.
Some of the work uploaded has been of great quality and it is very exciting to see the project develop, enabled by the Technical Labs implementation.View Project
