Construction training, Digital and IT training, Education and childcare training, and Health and social care training services are free subscription services. This page covers how to subscribe and what is included in a subscription. Make sure you follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our FE and skills Jiscmail list to stay updated on service enhancements and additions, community engagement, and additional support materials.
Jisc’s vocational learning services are packed with engaging resources and supplementary material for FE practitioners to use in teaching and learning. They make it easy to find and embed engaging, curriculum-ready resources for your learners. The services are curriculum mapped to NVQ/SVQ/VRQ level 2 and 3 qualifications as well as being mapped to the latest National Occupational Standards (NOS). The services are also relevant to many BTEC units. Links to the curriculum, learning outcomes and NOS keywords are made explicit and content is continually updated to remain mapped to the NOS and relevant FE curriculum, supporting future employment demands.
