Training Provider CPD support

Supporting Essex Training Providers

The key to the success of any organisation is the staff that work for it.

Therefore, the ESB are committed to supporting our local training providers by providing CPD opportunities for both teaching and professional staff.

IT, Digital, Creative CPD workshops

Our IT, Digital and Creative sector action group have launched a series of CPD talks to provide tutors, teachers and educators from accross Essex access to industry experts.

More than 20 educators attended our first session in December 2017, focussed on 'UX Design and Why it Matters'.

The session delivered by Michael Dravnieks from Coast Digital was held at the University of Essex. Michael explained what UX design is, what UX designers do as well as explaining how anyone can get started in UX design.

Recruitment Masterclass

The ESB are supporting our FE providers with recruitment of staff and recently 
(Jan 2018) ran a Recruitment Masterclass session, lead by ESB Chair, Adam Jones.

Engineering Experience Days

The ESB and the Essex Provider Network have also worked together to provide tutors with relevant industry experience days.

Working with local, leading companies in the sector such as Ford, e2v and Raytheon, the CPD event invited tutors and staff to visit key manufacturing and engineering sites which enabled over 20 members of staff (across several local colleges) to gain a unique insight into the mechanics of the local industry and alert them to the career and skills needs that exist.
