Frampton, Derek; Hull, Lynn
This guide explains how staff at further education (FE) colleges throughout England and Wales can engage in the Learning Gateway, which is a program featuring personal advisers, "front end" assessment and support, and life skills training to help disengaged 16- and 17-year-olds re-engage in education, training, and employment. Chapter 1 provides background information on the study of 13 FE colleges that was conducted to identify good practices in the area of facilitating youths' transition into further education and employment. Chapters 2-7, which include a total of 26 case studies, each contain the following elements: issues for colleges; current good practice; key success factors; and a checklist of activities for colleges. The topics of chapters 2-7 are as follows: the learner at the center and working together; the learning pathway; into the Learning Gateway; individual learning programs; mainstream learning; and evaluation and quality assurance. Chapter 8 is a checklist of actions for colleges that lists specific criteria against which colleges can evaluate their current performance in each of the areas discussed in chapters 2-7. Appended are the following: glossary; bibliography listing seven publications; and phone numbers/e-mail addresses of four project contacts and contact persons from the 13 colleges studied. (MN)
