Wilberforce College is a friendly and sociable place.
There is a strong ethos of support and tolerance. Students are helpful and good natured. Both staff and students enjoy being at College, and this is a key factor in the success that we achieve together. Like most educational establishments, eLearning and digital learning technology are now a central focus for development both in and out of the classroom.
A key question we are striving to answer is how can we transform learning with M365 to create a truly inclusive digital learning environment? Department for Education EdTech Demonstrator College - Wilberforce Sixth Form College
Wilberforce College is the only sixth form college in the UK to be awarded both Microsoft Showcase and DfE Demonstrator status. Our teachers have led the way by pushing forward with their own development and training, increasing their confidence, and gaining accreditations and qualifications. This has enabled us to develop an exemplary online learning platform that will be utilised fully as we move forward with our hybrid learning sessions.
In 2021-22 we will be expanding our support on the EdTech Demonstrator programme to help school and college leaders develop their own digital strategy based upon their leadership priorities and help them embed technology within their vision for teaching and learning in their school. By the end of the project, we plan to have worked with over 65 schools and colleges in order to support and shape the future of education in the UK.
Specific areas you may want our support in are:
- School / College integrated digital technology strategy;
- Reducing teacher workload through efficient communication, paperless working and automation;
- School / College resource management and whole staff skills training;
- Developing a curriculum based upon the principles of inclusive design.
