English: improving writing (Code: C0746)
This course will draw on best practice approaches to develop writing skills to produce coherent and cohesive texts which respond effectively to examination and occupational tasks: answers to reading questions, transactional and creative writing tasks.
Who is this for?
This course is for tutors who teach GCSE, Functional Skills English or other tutors who need to develop learners' writing skills.
This course aims to help learners overcome the barriers to writing they often face so they can focus on developing their writing skills to create texts fit for purpose. Learners will see how effective writing can empower them to communicate their interests and ideas to a wide audience.
You will have the knowledge and confidence to:
- use the natural writing process to overcome barriers: generating ideas, creating plans and drafts.
- refine writing by developing knowledge of vocabulary, grammar and paragraphing.
- consider how different approaches impact on what you want to say and who you want to influence.
This is a blended learning course, which consists of two 90-minute live sessions and self-led learning between them. The live sessions are one week apart, giving you a week to complete the mid-course tasks.
