Application of ratio and direct proportion (Code: C1215)

The application of ratio and proportion is foundational to learner understanding across multiple mathematics areas. In everyday life and the workplace, ratio and proportion are used extensively. Learners often find proportional reasoning problems difficult because they do not fully understand the concepts.

Apprenticeship Support for Learners with SEND
Apprenticeship Support for Learners with SEND (Code: C1371)

Starting an apprenticeship programme can often leave an individual feeling overwhelmed with how to juggle not only the demands of the workplace but how to meet the criteria set within their chosen programme. If an individual undertaking an apprenticeship also has a diagnosed learning difficulty these challenges may be heightened further and therefore the need for specialist support is imperative to ensure the learner is retained and able to complete their programme within the planned end date.

Assessment in English: knowing your learners' starting points
Assessment in English: knowing your learners' starting points (Code: C1270)

This course considers strategies for identifying gaps, and areas that learners struggle with, to use as a starting point for their learning. English learners tend to be returning learners that don't wish to sit the qualifications in this subject again. By pinpointing these specific areas of difficulty, we can aim to make their learning experience different for them. Providing learners with a metacognitive understanding of their learning, so they are able to decipher what works for them, is invaluable to their experience.
