Developing an effective Post-16 Maths and English curriculum
With Ofsted's new focus on the 'Quality of Education' many providers are reviewing their curriculum to ensure it offers the depth and breadth to engage and challenge learners. This webinar will outline the key elements of reviewing and developing your existing curriculum offer with a clear process you can follow.
Developing grammar for writing
The increased emphasis on SPAG in GCSE and Functional English qualifications continues to challenge teachers to teach grammar in effective and engaging ways for learners who have previously struggled with reading and writing. Contrary to expectations, grammar teaching does not have to be dull; patterns are remembered most easily when taught and practised actively within the context of reading and writing, especially when there is a genuine need to use them purposefully for effect.
Developing maths skills in English teaching (webinar)
This interactive webinar will identify the kind of number skills, vocabulary and calculation strategies that can be meaningfully explored when tackling Functional English tasks. The teaching approaches reflect an emphasis on collaborative learning and provide practitioners with important opportunities to develop learners' critical thinking and comprehension skills in interesting and engaging ways.
Developing T Level English
This is a one-day, face-to-face session is the third step in a four-part programme supporting the teaching of core English skills, which are embedded in each T Level route and pathway. The session builds on an introductory module which explores effective practice in developing embedded English, maths and digital skills and an e-learning module 'Developing English Skills for T Levels'.
Developing Vocabulary on Vocational Programmes (webinar)

Supporting learners to use subject specific vocabulary can therefore be a valuable way in which trainers can integrate English skills development in both their theory and practical sessions.

Effectively contextualising learning within English lessons (Webinar)
Much has been made over the past ten years of the benefits of embedding maths and English within vocational provision. There has been less focus however on the benefits of contextualising - building maths and English teaching around real life, relevant vocational examples. The impact can be powerful for learner and teachers alike.
