One-day course on embedding approaches to English and maths support in vocational programmes

CPD FE and Skills

We have negotiated a great deal on a one-day course for our members, aimed at practitioners and focusing on embedding approaches to English and maths support in vocational programmes.

This course is part of the English Pipeline programme and Maths Pipeline programme of CPD activities and is split so that delegates spend half a day on each area.

Delivered by the Education and Training Foundation, delegates will:

  • Review the English/maths skills that underpin vocational skills
  • Identify the barriers that learners face in tackling English/maths tasks in a vocational context
  • Demonstrate and try out a range of active learning strategies to develop English/maths skills on vocational courses
  • Develop key mathematical ideas relevant to the learners you work with
  • Support learners to develop communication confidence and abilities though their vocational learning programme
  • Explore self-evaluations and online learning opportunities to develop your own personal English/maths

The course will be held on 29 June 2016 and runs from 09:30 until 4:30pm with lunch and refreshments provided and is available to members at a cost of just £100.
