4wardfutures -Response to COVID-19
In response to the impacts of COVID-19, 4wardfutures has needed to adapt its models of delivery. The original focus on authentic interactions with employers, apprentices, university students, that we see as very important was no loner possible in the foreseeable future.
To address this challenge, 4wardfutures have quickly developed a range of online programmes, keeping that engagement centre stage.
In July 2020, 100 learners took part in a pilot online CALOM programme. All learners that took part were at home and were able to access the programme through mobile phones, tablet computers or laptops.
To ensure there were meaningful interactions with employers, learners took part in 15 interactive webinars with worldwide inspirational professionals from across the space industry.

4wardfutures have now developed their own online Moodle based platform called 4FJourneys. Through this platform we re developing a range of online programmes that will keep engagement with inspirational people from a range of sectors centre stage.
