UK learning technology provider, MyKnowledgeMap has been awarded the contract to develop an online toolkit for the Centre for Excellence in Leadership.
The Centre fosters and supports leadership improvement, reform and transformation throughout the learning and skills sector, serving existing and future leaders of education providers.
The MyKnowledgeMap toolkit will deliver leadership learning materials and digital learning resources for the adult and community Learning sector as well as independent specialist colleges catering for special needs and severe disabilities not provided for in mainstream colleges.
Easy to use and access, the toolkit will be designed so that end-user organisations can customise and adapt it to suit particular sets of learners.
