Tribal in Scotland Tribal are currently working with a number of colleges, employers, local authorities and

training providers in Scotland. We are also collaborating with the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) in several ways: providing learning resources to support some of their qualifications offered in England; taking part in a process which will lead to Tribal resources in Core and Essential Skills being endorsed by the SQA; and discussing other collaborative development projects as part of a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ between our two organisations. Some examples of our work with colleges in Scotland are illustrated throughout this directory.

The requirement James Watt College wanted to compile a portfolio of programmes suitable for distance learning delivery to meet the training needs of the local community. The mode of learning required was a pure distance learning model and, as such, there was a need to source high-quality, attractive and user-friendly support materials that would not only help to engage but also assist in motivating the learner to successful completion.

The solution – employer engagement, learner find and provision of appropriate learning resources James Watt College recognised that Tribal could provide high-quality distance learning materials and source learners as a solution to fully meet its requirements.

Their success and reputation has enabled them to cast their net wider than the local community and to support funded delivery of Tribal programmes beyond their local region.

clydebank college The requirement Clydebank College wanted to find an innovative and improved way to deliver learning in three of the five Core Skills – Numeracy, Communication and ICT – at SCQF Level 4 (Intermediate 1). In order to assist with their core skills delivery, the college wanted to source engaging, straightforward flexible resources, which were visually stimulating and created in a way that would increase learners’ understanding.

The solution – provision of appropriate learning resources Tribal developed and published contextualised Core Skills materials for the Hair and Beauty curriculum. For apprenticeship delivery and work-based learning, employers have identified the ‘core skills’ as those that are most likely to be needed in any work environment and every job will require some level of ability in some or all of these skills. By delivering the skills in a contextualised way, Clydebank College has grabbed the

These include the following SCQF Level 4 courses in Numeracy, Communication and ICT: • Retail • Health and Social Care • Construction • Childcare • Hospitality and Catering • Business and Administration • Customer Service

“We began using Tribal’s Core Skills materials in Hair and Beauty Angela Young Lecturer in Learning Support, Clydebank College

interactive Employability – essential work skills

***New (ask for a demonstration in your college, workplace or by webinar) This provides a complete package from assessment to skills development and has been designed to improve people’s employment prospects. It includes a rich compendium of resources to develop essential employability skills, providing consultants/tutors/advisers with a wide range of resources in a variety of media to help clients develop the skills needed for getting and keeping a job. Assessments and content have been designed by experts in Welfare to Work and Skills, Working Links and Tribal. The platform has been built by market leaders in online assessment and learning delivery. Designed to be used by individuals or as part of a blended support programme, ‘Employability – essential work skills’ offers valuable support for anyone working towards recognised employability qualifications such as ASDAN, BTEC Workskills, City and Guilds and NCFE. The resource is designed to provide self-access support for those ready for work or in work, and it will also be beneficial to support group workshops for clients getting ready for work.

Employability assessment This engaging resource includes an employability skills assessment, designed to find out more about the skills, attitudes and behaviours that individuals currently have and those that they need to develop. The skills assessment covers the following areas: • Work motivation – attitudes and motivation towards getting a job and starting work. • Career progression – career goals and approaches towards achieving them. • Job search skills – where and how potential jobs are identified. • Job application skills – methods used when applying for jobs. • Interview skills – interview preparation. • Work attitudes and behaviours – approaches to work, including working with others and communication. • Practical skills for work – skills and knowledge needed for effective day-to-day operation in the workplace. The employability skills assessment collates learner responses and provides an overall result in one of three categories or levels: • getting ready for work • ready for work • competent at work. These three categories/levels equate approximately to Levels 3/4 respectively in the SCQF. From an individual’s results, a learning plan is created with activities to help build skills related to the different sections of the assessment.
