    This course is primarily aimed at subject specialist teachers of Functional English but it may also be of interest to other practitioners working in the further education and skills sector who will be supporting the development of learners' Functional Skills, such as learning support assistants. We recommend that vocational teachers, trainers and assessors take part in the 'Vocational Revitalisers' (English) or 'Developing Vocational English' courses, for guidance on supporting learners to develop their English abilities in vocational contexts.
