Wilberforce Sixth Form College is an inclusive medium sized post 16 sixth form college, located in the East of the city of Kingston upon Hull.
Like most educational establishments, over the past 5 years eLearning and learning technology has become a major focus for development both in and out of the classroom. At Wilberforce this has primarily meant a drive to improve the quality of our virtual learning environment using a medal system for setting required standards. As a result VLE activity is at an all time high with significant use coming during non-teaching time. Our research shows that students value the 24/7 availability of high quality interactive resources which has helped structure their independent study time.
Enabling and empowering staff to take advantage of new and existing technology is key to the development of the college. Regular TLA and CPD training sessions are delivered throughout the year by internal and external colleagues and partners.
