Using a project based learning approach - Solihull College and University Centre


This outstanding teaching, learning and assessment (OTLA) project developed a series of projects for use in the training of Civil Engineers and Building Services Engineers. The projects are centred around current industry demands and working practices to ensure learners are exposed to dynamic and exciting learning and assessment experiences. Working groups made up of engineers from industry with specialisms in the relevant fields, and teachers working with apprentices from the Technical Apprenticeship Consortium (TAC) developed the projects. These include all the necessary resources for the teaching, learning and assessment of specific learning outcomes relevant to the qualifications undertaken by apprentices and full-time students within these disciplines.

Partners in the project  included, Abingdon & Witney College, Bedford College, Bridgewater College, College of North West London, Coventry University College, Guildford College Group, Leeds College of Building, Liverpool City College, Liverpool John Moores, Newcastle College, New College Nottingham, South Thames College, Warwickshire College and Warwick University
