Home Learning Tracker

Camphill Wakefield have developed a Home Learning Tracker for tutors

Introduce the approach or activity

The remote learning tracker was developed to provide our college with a document that collated details of work packs sent out to students during the lockdown and provide evidence to local authorities on progress being made.

There are a number of ways in which the tracker can be used:

  • It can be an overall data collection system for a small college, where one person is overseeing data entry into the spreadsheet for an organisation.
  • Tutors who are contacting their personal tutor groups on a weekly basis can keep their own of work packs sent and update the progress from the information that they glean in conversations. This gives them a live record of work and progress and they can then send out further packs when they know the work has been completed.
  • The comments section on the tracker allows both parents and tutor to record their feedback and suggestions so that we can better target the work being sent out to meet the needs of the individual and their household.

Top tips and key considerations

  • Best suits a small organisation or tutors managing smaller cohorts of learners.
  • This tracker can be amended to suit the needs of the college or organisation.
  • Tutors may need some training and familiarisation with how the spreadsheet works.
  • Can be emailed to managers who need data quickly.
  • Is not linked to a MIS system.

What resources are required?

  • Access to Excel
  • Computer knowledge
