Update (September 2014)
Education and Training Foundation and ongoing development of the Excellence Gateway
The Foundation's, work to transform the Excellence Gateway is continuing to progress. In May we launched the first ‘Exhibition site’ showcasing new and legacy resources from the Excellence Gateway around a particular theme. This first themed site focused on Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND), addressing learning 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. To ensure that we can continue to provide the service we also need to make changes that will make it more efficient to run and maintain. We are developing a new front end website and migrating resources into a repository. You will not see a series of web pages. Instead this will work like a library where you search for a topic and get a list of results.
This version of the Excellence Gateway will continue to operate as normal until we launch the new version. However, we need to move resources into the repository and shut down old sites. These sites include:
- Supporting your CPD
- Teaching and learning programme
- Skills for Families
- Skills In-Sight
- Reaching Forward Index
- Vocational Learning Support Programme
If there are resources you use regularly on these sites and which you do not want to lose access to, let us know by contacting the EG team via the link below and we will try and ensure that they are migrated.
Our target completion date for this work is December 2014 enabling us to launch a revamped and revitalised Excellence Gateway
