23/01/2019 @ Online - Webinar 2 - Supporting vulnerable learners in maths and English in apprenticeships
The aim of the interactive webinar is to examine ways in which practitioners can teach, support and develop maths and English in a methodically inclusive way to support those who are struggling, or who require additional support at the same time as making sure the whole group makes progress.
Participants will use some self-evaluation tools which they can take away and use in future planning. You will examine the evidence on what works to support learners with SEND - and what doesn't.
25/01/2019 @ Online - Maximising the effectiveness of support staff (webinar)
Research evidence indicates there can be a positive impact on learner attainment when a range of support staff work in structured settings, implementing targeted interventions using brief, regular sessions maintained over time to motivate, support and engage students. These interventions need to be based on detailed assessments to ensure that the right support is provided to the right pupil. This webinar will help you explore these areas.

14/02/2019 @ Online - Webinar 5 - Designing a supportive curriculum in maths and English for lower attainers
This interactive webinar will examine a range of practical strategies practitioners can adopt to design a supportive curriculum in maths and English that will encourage lower attainers to persevere and to make good progress. We will examine the evidence about what works and share positive experiences with other practitioners. We will pay attention to the difference between providing a framework for learning and slavishly following exam criteria and past question revision.
