Diva Lead Centres
In order to rollout the DIVA partnership programme effectively, Lead Centres have been established to act as champions for the DIVA industry partnerships, working with a broader consortium of education and training providers. The Lead Centre approach is intended to provide a focal point for information, advice and training to enable new curriculum and awards to be developed and piloted.
Institutions may be Lead Centres for more than one of the DIVA partnership programmes. Likewise, there may be two Lead Centres for any one programme, representing different sectors such as Schools and Further Education.
A public procurement process has already led to the appointment of several champions and further appointments are in progress for new partnerships now coming on line in 2007.
