Education and Training Foundation and ongoing development of the Excellence Gateway

The Foundation's, work to transform the Excellence Gateway is advancing apace. We have just launched a new ‘Exhibition site’ which is showcasing new and legacy resources from the Excellence Gateway around a particular theme. This first themed site focuses upon Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), addressing provision for Learners with Learning Difficulties and/or Disabilities. The SEND Exhibition brings together resources to help providers address the new obligations placed upon them by the Children and Families Act 2014.

We are also working hard to improve the searchability of all resources held within the Excellence Gateway repository and developing a new front end website. Our target completion date for this work is July/August 2014, in time to launch a revamped and revitalised Excellence Gateway ahead of the new academic year in September.

The Excellence Gateway will continue to operate as normal for now. We have made only simple changes at this stage, to the home page, news items and regarding contact information.

We want to make sure you are kept up-to-date about the work of the Foundation, and we will keep you informed about how the changes to the Excellence Gateway are progressing. We do appreciate any feedback, especially regarding resources held in the Excellence Gateway and the ways in which you access and use them.
