SFA offers some clarity over FELTAG per cent of online delivery.

It is great to see that The Skills Funding Agency in England have now offered some clarity on their position around the famous FELTAG 10%. In the last few months a few hares have been set running through rumour and even ‘rumours of rumours ‘.

In the statement issued yesterday the Agency offered clarity on what they feel will constitute the 10% of delivery online.

The FELTAG definition of a 10% wholly-online component relates to the proportion of each programme of study that could be moved from face-to-face delivery to online delivery. This online component could include time when learners learn online, interact with other learners online or use online content, systems, tools and services with little, if any, direct tutor support.

I guess this still leaves questions of teacher role in sourcing, adapting or creating content, devising activities and facilitating discussions. All involve significant teacher time but may not be defined as ‘direct tutor support’. Are teachers paid for this?
