Going for Gold: A Guide to High Quality Study Programmes for Leaders and Managers


This guide is one of three guides commissioned by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF) and produced by touchconsulting Ltd as part of the #StudyGood programme (2019-2020).

The guide is designed to support leaders and managers across the Further Education and Training sector with responsibility for ensuring high quality study programmes. It builds on evidence-informed research concerning the design and delivery of study programmes that have been shown to work.  It is also packed with top tips and development activities that will help readers to apply some of the strategies and processes to their own context.

The guide is complemented by a bespoke self-assessment tool that will enable organisations to evaluate the quality of their existing study programme provision, highlighting areas of strength and opportunities for future development. 

Audience: Employers, careers leaders, work placement coordinators
