These are recordings of two online sessions that were arranged for pupils who are considering studying LAW or CRIME at the University. The sessions provided a good opportunity for prospective students to get an idea of the type of career they can follow with a degree in those subjects. In the first session there are contributors who have graduated in Law or Criminology and are now working in those fields. The second session includes contributors who have graduated in Law or Criminology but went on to pursue a career beyond those subjects.

JISC Case Studies: Digital Collaboration in the Post-16 Sector
Jisc is working in partnership with Welsh Government to drive forward Digital 2030, which aims to see learning providers in Wales harness the potential of digital technology underpinned by principles of innovation, collaboration, co-production and social partnership. To support this, Jisc has sourced and developed six examples of successful collaborative initiatives using digital tools and technology in post-16 learning and teaching in Wales. We outlined the key success factors for these case studies and showed where each collaborative approach could be scaled up or was beneficial to address particular issues or subjects. As a whole, these case studies offer an insight into the exciting possibilities opened up by collaboration within and across sectors, enabled by digital technology, when partners in a collaboration share a common vision and sustainable approach. Key themes supporting Wales’ digital ambitions The case studies can be seen as exemplars of the four key national priorities outlined in the Welsh Government’s call to action for FE institutions in December 2022: Work collaboratively to widen access to learning opportunities Develop learners’ and staff digital capabilities and confidence for learning, life and work Maximise the potential of technology to empower, enthuse and inspire learners Embed agile, resilient and sustainable approaches to delivery The case studies The six case studies encompass colleges across Wales and collaborations across FE and with sixth forms, HE, work-based learning and community learning (see Appendix 1). The digital tools and technology in use range from virtual classrooms and virtual reality technology to apps and collaboration platforms such as Microsoft Teams. In brief, the case studies cover: Digital Diamonds: an active Welsh community of practice helping practitioners and managers deliver Essential Skills Wales (ESW) Digital Literacy across post-16 education and training. Educ8 and CEMET (University of South Wales): developing virtual reality resources for work-based learning through a collaborative approach with HE and employers. Growing Comms: installing connected active learning spaces in HE and FE through cross-sector collaboration, with strongly positive impacts on learners. St David’s WeConnect: collaboration between sixth forms to provide a wider curriculum through virtual classrooms. Target Tracker: colleges working collaboratively to develop digital tools to support learners with additional needs. Urdd Gobaith Cymru and the Gwreiddio Scheme (Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol): developing Welsh language skills through collaborative learning for apprentices and teaching staff.
