Launched on Friday 17th February 2012, as part of a £1.4 million project, JISC Advance is seeking proposals to enhance or repurpose existing resources to be used in the FE and Skills sector across the UK. The focus for the programme is to improve the learner experience and increase efficiency and effectiveness of providers in line with the policies for the sector being led by each of the UK governments.
This opportunity is two-fold and offers sector providers and agencies the chance to:
apply existing resources (from JISC or elsewhere) to their work and adapt them for their needs
identify gaps in these resources and/or current uses made of technology in the sector and create new resources for use by other providers
An initial £450,000 will be available to adapt existing resources with a further £900,000 available for development projects to address any gaps.
