Who is this for?
Functional Skills English tutors and learning support assistants, working with developing readers and writers (learners working towards high-end Entry level 2, Entry level 3 and above.)
If you have previous undertaken the Post-16 Phonics course for emergent readers/ writers, you will find that this course different in focus and content, so can be taken in addition. You may also wish to undertake the emergent readers/writers course if you also support learners working towards low-end Entry level 2, Entry level 1 and below.
The aim of this course is to introduce participants to Post-16 Phonics principles and practices in the context of working with developing readers & writers (learners working towards higher end Entry level 2/ Entry level 3). The focus will be on approaches that support learners to decode and, in particular, spell words they encounter in their lives, work & studies with particular reference to 'one-to-many' sounds and spellings.
You will have the knowledge and confidence to:
- identify the Post-16 Phonics concepts that underpin the Post-16 Phonics Toolkit
- identify what is meant by 'One-to-many' and how this relates to practice
- help to assess where learners are on a continuum of phonic skills and knowledge
- plan and use phonics approaches with developing readers/ writers
- differentiate learning in groups where learners have a range of phonic skills and knowledge.
You should be teaching or be in a support role on a Functional Skills English programme.
