The Further Education (FE) Catalyst Learning project set out to strengthen the professional development and progression of the West Yorkshire FE workforce.
The West Yorkshire Consortium of Colleges (WYCC) received funding from the Department for Education (DfE) Further Education Professional Development Grants to support the pilot project, 'FE Catalyst Learning'.
Training packages were designed to address challenges faced by staff entering further education from industry as well as upskilling existing staff in vocational areas.
A selection of expert facilitators delivered the training to learning facilitators from the eight colleges involved.
The FE Catalyst Learning project pilot ended in March 2022, but the learning facilities continue to cascade their knowledge and skills within the colleges.
