What's in this episode?

In this episode, we ask the question, what is the role of social impact investing in workforce development?

The Edtech Podcast is in conversation with an investor and an analyst tracking the future of workforce development markets. It's a fascinating listen, covering;

  • the gig economy
  • the problem of regional disparity
  • and, the role of technology, including AI in helping us find jobs and thrive once we are in them.

As always, we ask how to keep the human element alive in all of this, too. This is the final recording of The VocTech Podcast for 2020. Enjoy! We look forward to bringing you more in 2021.

What's in this episode?

The episode is part of Season Two of our podcast series 'The Edge: Accelerating Higher Education', supported by Salesforce.org. The Edge takes a fresh look at higher education and digital transformation. 

This episode seeks to address the impact of radical digital transformation which has taken place in 2020 and where this leaves Higher Education going forward.

You will hear about work that partners Jisc, Emerge Education and Salesforce.org have been doing around digital strategy in Higher Education.

The 2030 strategy framework for university leaders is centred around four main themes;

  • Leadership
  • Staff
  • Business model
  • Investment

There has been a sharp learning curve on what is possible and how it should be refined when we are using technology. Listen to our guests and learn from their research within the Digital Strategy Framework on what they found useful or surprising in 2020.

What's in this episode?

VocTech Now was part of Ufi's response to support the vocational learning sector in the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.

It addressed the immediate barriers being faced by supporting vocational learning providers to rapidly transition to remote teaching and training and deliver accessible learning at a time of significant change. This was done with small grants of between £10k and £25k.

In this episode, you'll hear stories from three colleges; Lancaster & Morecambe College, the Isle of Wight College and South West College in Northern Ireland. Our guests talk about some of the Further Education challenges they faced during 2020, how their collaboration with VocTech Now had a positive impact and we delve into some of the lessons they have learnt along the way.

Enjoy and follow the conversation using #VocTechPodcast and #VocTechNow.

Welcome to the latest episode of the GLOBAL edition of our What Matters in Edtech Series, our podcast collaboration with Bett. This podcast series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help. 

Thank you to Bett for supporting this series and to Pearson for supporting this episode.

What's in this episode?

 

In this episode looking at skills, we are in conversation with an amazing 19-year-old key worker on her experience of 2020, an SVP on understanding more about how vocational learning pathways are adapting to a fast-shifting employment landscape, and a Principal and CEO on the education sector moving forward on cultivating essential skills.

We will be asking:

  • Which skills are in demand?
  • How are people reskilling?
  • How did key workers in the pandemic train for this moment and how can adaptability and resilience be developed from an early age? And,
  • what changes in assessment and qualifications and support will we see in reaction to our new societal needs?

 

Plus, there are some great book recommendations and the usual anecdotes, allegories and insights.
