Action Planning and Recording Achievement.
This document examines strategies and procedures that British further education (FE) colleges can use to develop and enhance systems and structures for guiding and supporting learners and learning. It is based on the findings of a field test of the Managing Learning model for planning and recording the process of FE students. First, the importance of auditing existing programs is emphasized. The contribution that processes for recording achievement can make to quality assurance is discussed along with ways in which individual action plans (IAPs) and National Records of Achievement (NRAs) can inform and enhance entry services. Evidence for using action planning and recording achievement to support learning is presented along with a procedure for their use in providing a focus for tutorial support. Guidelines for recording evidence of achievement in an NRA and using IAPs and NRAs to facilitate transition are listed. The appendix contains a flowchart illustrating the proposed process of managing learning through regular planning and review. (Contains lists of acknowledgements and useful documents.) (MN)
