The Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF): Where is it heading?

29 September 2009, 5.30-7.00 pm, Drama Studio, Floor One, Institute of Education, 20 Bedford Way WCIH 0AL

The Qualifications and Credit Framework has been seen as key means of achieving a comprehensive and flexible qualifications system for young people and adults.  But it has been a long time in coming and its future still looks uncertain. Tony Tait will lead the seminar looking the origins of the QCF, its key design features and how it is likely to develop in what promises to be a turbulent political climate.  The seminar will also consider areas for further research and investigation.
 
Tony was involved in the pioneering work on qualifications and credit in the 1990s, which forms the basis for the QCF. Since then, he has worked in this area for number of key national agencies including QCA, LSC, LSDA, SSCs awarding bodies and providers.  He now works as an education advisor/consultant and holds a position as a Visiting Research Associate in the Centre.

This is one of a series of invitation seminars on current issues in lifelong learning to be led by Associates and Fellows of the Institute of Education attached to the Centre for Post-14 Research and Innovation.

To reserve a place at the seminar (numbers may have to be restricted) please contact R.Bull@ioe.ac.uk, 02076126671

ALIEN BABY

 

This is a video from YouTube on a creature that was found in Mexico in 2007 which is unknown to scientists. Interesting video: alien becomes capital! So it’s no longer truly alien to and for us.

INTERVIEWS ON THE CURRENT CRISIS OF CAPITAL

 

 

 Although I don’t agree with all the views expressed in these two interviews, they make for interesting viewing. Both come from ‘Russia Today’ and were posted to YouTube.
