Good Practice in GNVQ Induction Programmes. Project Report.
A 2-year research and development project was conducted to identify existing good practices for introducing students in the United Kingdom (UK) to General National Vocational Qualifications (GNVQs) and available teaching and learning materials for use in the induction of GNVQs in UK schools and colleges. The main activities of the project's three phases were as follows: research phase (review of the GNVQ literature, initial exploratory visits to a few identified GNVQ centers, development of a questionnaire for a mail survey and selection of a sample of 20 cases of good practice in induction of GNVQs in schools and colleges in 8 vocational areas and at 3 levels, development of an interview schedule, and conduct of 9 in-depth case studies of GNVQ center programs in art and design, business, science, the built environment, health and social studies, hospitality and catering, leisure and tourism, and manufacturing; development phase (production of draft reports on good practice and draft teaching/learning support materials); and promotion phase (refinement of examples of good practice through a workshop). (The bibliography lists 57 references. Appendixes constituting approximately 70% of this document contain the following: questionnaires and interview schedules, nine case studies, and a list of schools and colleges visited.) (MN)
