North West Regional College Case Study
North West Regional College is one of six area-based colleges in Northern Ireland. In the Care department many of the learners taking NVQs are in full-time, shift-based employment with small care sector organisations. The team has recognised for some time that to enable a more flexible approach to accessing the NVQs, they need to improve the use of technology
They wanted to introduce an e-portfolio system that would enable learners, assessors and tutors to manage their NVQ portfolios electronically and, where necessary, allow the portfolio to be accessed remotely and at times best suited to the working patterns of the learners.
