CVQO Schools Partnership Programme - Year 2
We are very happy to see that our Schools Partnership Programme is even more popular this year! The series of photos above show students from Rutland City College working towards their BTEC Level 1 in Teamwork, Personal Skills and Citizenship.
The party went to Rutland Water and learnt how to co-operate in building shelters and using team games to demonstrate team skills.

The 2014 Roadshows are now finished and despite the challenges of explaining our new qualifications and systems they were extremely well received.
We saw the highest attendance ever, with around 500 VQOs from all over the country and all organisations represented.
Thank you to all those who attended and helped to make the evenings such a success. Overall people were very enthusiastic about the changes, liking the new qualifications very much. This is borne out by the fact that despite enrolment regulations not going out until early September, applications have come flooding in and almost half the available places have been allocated!
If you want to enrol students then best not delay!
The next stage will see the distribution of the workbooks and resource materials - this will be as soon as we can possibly manage.

There are some new elements in the CVQO led Level 1 BTEC in Teamwork, Personal Skills and Citizenship and it’s great to see our new students taking up the challenge.
The photo shows Kent students comparing different types of map in the new navigation unit.

We are hearing back from our Regional Operations Managers that the Roadshows are really well attended and very useful to new and current instructors alike.
