Becta launches new 'Generator' to boost technology use in further education and skills

Generator, the technology improvement leadership tool for FE and Skills has been launched. This new online tool is available to all colleges and learning providers in the FE and skills sector.

Generator offers providers the opportunity to identify where they can make improvements in their use of technology - it will help them to maximise their investment in technology for the benefit of learners.

A stakeholder steering group included representatives from all parts of the sector chaired by John Stone, Chief Executive of Learning Skills Network (LSN), has been closely involved in the design and development of Generator.

John Stone said: "After a great deal of work to identify best practice in learning and skills we believe we have created a flexible and forward looking leadership improvement tool in 'Generator' that will continue to support developments throughout FE and skills for years to come. With it, learning providers will not only be able to assess their use of technology, but they can benchmark themselves against other providers and develop their improvement plans."

Generator was launched at Becta's Next Generation Learning conference where Minister for Further Education, Siôn Simon MP, challenged leaders from colleges, work-based learning and adult learning organisations to step up to the mark in their use of technology.
