» ESF-Funded Work-Based Learning Programme - Third Call for Proposals Now Open

Funding Source: ESF Convergence Funding – Priority 3

Summary:

The University of Glamorgan’s Work-Based Learning (WBL) scheme is one of several multi-million pound HE initiatives at different stages of assessment that aim to deliver higher-level skills in line with the key Welsh sectors identified by WAG:

Foundation Degrees (FD) – Pan Wales: UOG-led

Work-Based Learning (WBL) – Pan Wales: UOG-led

Access to Masters (ATM) – West Wales & the Valleys: Swansea-led

Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarships (KESS) – West Wales & the Valleys: Bangor-led

This is the first time that the Welsh HE sector has collaborated on such a scale, and it is hoped that this will result in a step-change in collaborative activity across the sector.

WBL programme’s participants will obtain higher-level skills that will enhance their career opportunities, creating a long-term positive impact on the Welsh economy and skills base. WBLs are an ideal stepping-stone qualification, which is seen as particularly suited to part-time learners in employment.

Following the successful of first two calls for proposals where a number of WBLs were given the go-ahead by the Programme Management Board, we are opening a third call for proposals. We are inviting institutions to submit a Project Idea Form (PIF) by 7th January 2011, which is aimed at providing the Programme Board with enough information to judge whether the submission of a detailed project delivery plan (PDP) is appropriate.

Please note the following ESF stipulations for the FD and WBL Programmes:

1. Project participants (students) must be in (private sector) employment, and must live and/or work in the Convergence area of Wales;

2. Projects must address one or more of the following WAG Ministerial Advisory Group private sector priorities: Energy; Environmental management; Telecoms & ICT; Bioscience; Health; Financial Services; Creative Industries; Automotive and Aerospace; Construction; Leisure and Tourism

For further information on the above, or on the funding process for the programme and to get the PIF template, please email the WBLProgramme Team, or telephone ext. 2459.
