Who is this for?
Practitioners working in the further education and skills sector i.e.
- vocational lecturers
- workplace trainers
- learning support assistants.
Building on prior experience or the introductory 'Vocational Revitaliser' course, to enable vocational teachers, trainers and assessors to support their learners' maths development within vocational learning programmes.
You will have the knowledge and confidence to:
- motivate learners by helping them to value maths development and believe in their potential to achieve maths qualifications where required
- plan sequences of learning where maths is developed alongside vocational competencies
- support vocational learners' maths progression by adopting assessment for (as) learning approaches
- work collaboratively with maths specialists (or access specialist resources/ support) to ensure learners experience coherent maths development across programmes
- engage in their own maths development, and apply learning to their practice.
One full day, face-to-face with a pre- and post-session task.
You should be a vocational practitioner, with experience of teaching, assessing or supporting maths in the FE and skills sector.
This course is a progression from the one/half day maths 'Vocational revitaliser: an introduction'. We expect you to have completed the introductory course or be experienced in supporting maths in your vocational area.
If you haven't completed the introductory course complete this short task to self-assess against the learning objectives from the 'Vocational revitaliser: an introduction'. This will help you to assess your readiness for the VR+ or signpost you to an introductory course.
