Dundee and Angus College

Simon Hewitt, Vice Principal (Curriculum & Attainment)

"The LOcHER project is a shining example of how all curriculum within D&A College should be modelled.  With a fantastic and engaging mix of learning activities which included working in groups, dealing with external agencies, tackling real life issues, engaging technology and undertaking independent research, it's no surprise that the learners (and staff!) really enjoyed it.  There are many learning points from this approach and we look forward to rolling it out further within other areas of the College."

 

Kerry Hastie, Princes Trust Team Leader

"The team really got involved with this project. It gave them something to really get their teeth into. They worked hard researching Asbestos and were fully engaged throughout. They made it theirs and were very proud and excited about their work. From start to finish it was a very positive experience for them."

 

Andy Cathro, Health & Safety Officer

"I have delivered training for College students on a number of occasions but using the LOcHER approach was so much more rewarding for myself and the students. They were engaged from the very start, it created a sense of ownership, and it developed a number of transferable skills. Being the first College in Scotland to use this approach has also been very worthwhile and I will continue to encourage this method of teaching."
