The Teach Too programme

The Institute of Education (IOE), in partnership with the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) is developing the Teach Too programme, commissioned and funded by the Education and Training Foundation.Teach Too aims to improve vocational learning by supporting occupational experts to become involved in teaching their expertise. It is one of the key concepts promoted by the Commission on Adult Vocational Teaching and Learning (CAVTL) in its report entitled It’s about work…. published in 2013.

Phase 1

Teach Too Phase 1 ran between February and September 2014, and on this site you can find demonstration models exemplifying in different ways, and to different degrees, the Teach Too approach.  You can download the published report of Teach Too Phase 1 (PDF).

Phase 2

The Institute of Education in partnership with AELP, is now leading Phase 2 of the Teach Too programme, which started in March 2015. It builds on examples of current joint working between occupational experts from vocational workplaces, and pedagogical experts from the education and training sector, and has as its slogan ‘People from Industry teaching their work’.  In a recent blog post, we suggest that apprenticeships should all incorporate the Teach Too approach to ensure that as well as increasing the quantity of apprenticeships, we also increase their quality.   Teach Too Phase 2 has three strands of work, focussing on Maths, STEM, and on projects in the Service and Emerging sectors of industry.  We will be reporting on their progress in due course.  The objective of all this work is to make recommendations for a national Teach Too framework in the autumn.
