Professional Learning Needs of Schools and FE Colleges

WP worked with Westminster Institute of Education (WIE), the School of Education within Oxford Brookes University (OBU), to identify the key workforce development needs of regional schools and Further Education (FE) colleges over the next two years. ┬áThe aim was to provide a reliable source of information to inform WIE’s future workforce development provision.

The market research included a detailed online survey of around 2500 schools and colleges in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties. Over 200 responses were received, with three-quarters of these coming from the primary schools sector.

The results of the online survey was supported by qualitative information gained from attendance at a primary school head’s meeting and secondary school event.

The market research has helped WIE to achieve a better understanding of the workforce and organisational development needs of primary schools, secondary schools and FE colleges in the Oxfordshire area.
