CONEL - Using Master Technicians to support curriculum delivery

Principal focus of the project

Through the project partnership, industry experts were provided with professional development for pedagogy, who then exchanged current vocational practice and knowledge requirements with STEM teaching practitioners. The use of questionnaires for the project partners and participants addressed and captured pre-project responses from learners, teachers and Master Technicians and post-MT teaching session reflections from learners, teachers and Master Technicians.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

The project found clear links between the Master Technician sessions that ran and the positive influence the sessions have had on the learners, with reported increases in gaining new skills, feelings of inspiration, and confidence. Teachers indicated their confidence had increased, and felt it would now be easier to embed industry within their teaching.
