Making Maths Matter

OTLA

This one day course will explore how vocational practitioners courses can incorporate maths into the curriculum alongside employer engagement. It will draw on the learning from a project led by Lincoln College as part of the Education and Training Foundation's Outstanding Teaching, Learning and Assessment (OTLA) Programme. The project worked with teachers and employers in the engineering and creative industries, but the content will be relevant for vocational practitioners in all subject areas.
