Good Practice Database

Looking for examples of good practice to help you overcome some of the challenges in teaching and learning?

ALI (The Adult Learning Inspectorate) have just added another 17 examples of good practice to its Good Practice database. Excalibur, the quality improvement arm of the ALI, now shares 220 proven methods and techniques found during ALI inspections - complete with suggestions on how to adapt the ideas for your provision.

Examples include things like:

  • Hampstead Garden Suburb Institute – Use teaching strategies that encourage learners with moderate or severe learning difficulties to communicate and participate effectively in learning activities.

  • Darlington Local Education Authority provides a wide range of well-designed family learning programmes which effectively take into account parents' and carers' learning needs, expectations and aspirations.
The database has been up and running for a while now and there’s lots of examples and inspiration in there.

For good practice relating specifically to Adult and Community Learning chose type of provision from the options on the left hand menu - you can then explore particular subject areas from there. A users guide (in .pdf format) can also be found here.
