The College of Teachers has collaborated with institutions across Europe to create a policy on how electronic portfolios can be used to support the professional development of educators.
The project's goal is to define the parameters of a tool that educators can use to further their career development as well as improve their ability to access employment across Europe. This policy will serve as a strong argument for the implementation of such a system at both a national and international level.
Teaching professionals from around the UK are invited to the International EU Conference to disseminate the results of the PEEP EU project to investigate a policy model for the development of e-portfolio career tracking for teachers that provides evidence of life-long learning..
Providing university courses that ensure a well-rounded skillset for students and heightened employability prospects for those graduating is of paramount importance to universities.
In 2012, the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) removed limitations on the number of students with AAB grades that universities can recruit. With universities now funded by student loans, it is imperative that higher education institutions deliver optimum teaching and learning and design their curricula to ensure student attraction and retention.
Furthermore, in May 2013, Universities UK published The Funding Environment for Universities report which showed that in the overall recruitment for the academic year 2012-13 was 9% lower than anticipated. This clearly indicates the need to provide attractive courses that can enhance graduate employability prospects compared to both attending another institution and not entering higher education.
Alongside this, the February 2012 Wilson Review of University-Business Collaboration highlighted the need for higher education institutions to further engage in internships, work placements and further collaboration with the private sector to improve the employability of their students. This places emphasis on the need for universities to liaise with industry when designing their curricula in order to deliver courses that meet the needs of business.
