Learning in the workplace – supporting football apprentices
by Pete Cannell (OEPS project)
During the 2014/15 football season the OEPS project piloted the use of OER to support the education of football apprentices using a group-based workplace learning model. The basic model was well established but had previously made use of accredited modules.
‘Learning in the workplace – supporting football apprentices with the academic component of their apprenticeship’ is an evaluation report covering the running of the initiative from 2009 to 2015 produced by the OEPS team. The report includes a short evaluation of the OER pilot which reflects on the strengths, weaknesses and potential for development of open educational practice in this rather specific setting. The remainder of the report provides context and commentary on the wider issues of providing education in a workplace and professional setting to young adults.
