Welcome to the May 2022 Vocational Learning Resources Newsletter.

Evolving VLRs project: we want to hear from you!

As you may be aware, we’re currently running a project to look at how we might redesign our services to make sure that they continue to be valuable to members.

During the first stage of our project, we spoke to teaching staff about their general experiences with digital resources and came away with some really useful and interesting insights.

Using this research, we’ve recently come up with a new idea for a potential product and we would love to get some feedback on some basic mock ups of our idea to see if this is an idea that we should pursue.

We’re still focusing on speaking to teaching staff at the moment and you don’t need to have been involved in the previous stages of the project in order to get involved now: we will make sure that volunteers are fully updated on our process so far and how we’ve arrived at this new idea.

The feedback sessions will take about 45 minutes and will take place on Zoom. There’s nothing to prepare beforehand and we appreciate that everyone is very busy at the moment so we can be very flexible around your schedule and pick a date and time that suits you.

If you have any questions or if you would like any further information, please contact Samantha Phoenix directly at
