What's in this episode?

Welcome to the next episode of our #voctechpodcast series!

First up in this week's episode, our intrepid further education podcast whizz Ian Hurd is out chatting to sector colleagues at Bridgend College, all about getting on that digital starting-line and beyond. Think cyber-security, 3d printing, and jam boards. 

Our second chat is with the team at How Do I? Taryl and Tom talk to us about accessibility, instruction and learning technology in the workplace as we throw back to an interview from the tail end of last year. 

Thank you Ufi Voctech Trust for supporting this series and vocational skills development in the UK, through their investments and grants in vocational technology. You can check out their work here.

Welcome to the sixth and final episode of our What Matters in Edtech series, supported by Bett. This series is all about the things that matter in education, and how and when tech might help.

Thank you to Pearson for sponsoring this week's episode. 

What's in this episode?

This episode was recorded LIVE at #Bett2020 and is all about skills. We take a top-level view of the skills agenda both here and internationally, looking into why there is a disconnect between education and skills requirements and where the UK stands on solving this issue compared to the rest of the world. We then drill into some of the vocational learning experiences which are attempting to take on the skills gap.
