Embedding English and Mathematics in Your Vocational Teaching
This interactive webinar will examine effective ways in which your teaching or training staff can incorporate the development of learners’ English and mathematics skills into their vocational teaching. It follows on from the live one-day ‘Maths & English Summit’ organised by the AELP in Leeds in May.
For many training and employer providers, colleges and local authority adult education services, feedback from inspectors at the end of an Ofsted inspection that there is ‘insufficient development of learners’ English and mathematics skills through the vocational curriculum’ is an all too familiar refrain. Too often, opportunities are missed to develop and reinforce these crucial employability skills for learners. This can happen for a number of reasons, including poor planning, a lack of confidence amongst teachers and trainers, a misunderstanding of what English and mathematics skills employers want learners to develop, and a lack of appreciation of how important these skills are to learners’ future careers.
