Understand what is meant by commissioning

·         Reviewing the benefits and challenges of commissioning or being commissioned.

·         Build on the expertise already in room-to appreciate what we have already got in Extra curricular learning and to begin to explore how we might make it better through commissioning.

·         To shift our thinking/practice from good to outstanding

  • Sharing good practice & challenges
  • 'Live' case studies from your region (schools and VCS ECA providers)
  • How to get the most out of the Learning Exchange and VCS Hub
  • Peer Support activity
  • Networking
Evidence underpinning this approach

Learning Exchange and our partners, University of the First Age (UFA), QiSS and 4Children are working for the DfE to help you develop and enhance your ECA provision.

You will have a full morning’s training delivered by the UFA. The topic for February 2013 is “Effective Commissioning” and underpins our resource of the same title. A key focus for these seminars will be the opportunity in the afternoon to discuss good practice and also challenges, by meeting with and learning from other colleagues working in the same arena.
