Education and Training Foundation (the Foundation) and ongoing development of the Excellence Gateway

The Foundation, having taken charge of the Excellence Gateway, is now in the process of transforming it. We have put out invitations for companies to rebuild the front end website and to build exhibition spaces which will highlight specific collections of resources within the Gateway. We are also working hard on making the resources more searchable and easy to find by reorganising the repository. We are aiming for all this work to be completed by July/August of this year so that we can launch a revamped and revitalised Excellence Gateway in time for the new academic year in September.

The Excellence Gateway will continue to operate as normal for now.

We have been making some simple changes at this stage, particularly to the news items and the home page. 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 on changes you would like to see to the resources in the Gateway and the ways in which you access them. We also want you to know how to get in touch with us if you have any other queries, so we have updated our contact information too.

Remember, resources and materials that you can currently access will continue to be accessible and nothing about the way that you access the Excellence Gateway and the resources it holds is changing at the present time. We will make sure you are informed in advance of any changes happening.
