English across the vocational programme: taking a deeper approach (East and North)

Every vocational teacher or trainer, consciously or unconsciously, teaches aspects of English because English (and, increasingly, digital literacies) are required to carry out almost all vocational tasks. You will build on knowledge and techniques from your introductory Vocational Revitaliser course (or from prior learning and/or experiences of developing embedded English).
