Literacy For Maths: overcoming language Issues in GCSE and Functional Skills Maths (Webinar) (Code: C0654)

Both research evidence and practical experience tells us that often learners lack the English language skills required to effectively engage with maths questions, and that this can hold back their progress and development. This webinar will explore the issue and identify how you can scaffold tasks to make them more accessible to a variety of learners.
