Functional Skills in maths and English

Professional development programme to support the teaching of Functional Skills in maths and English

The Education and Training Foundation has commissioned ccConsultancy and partners to develop and lead professional development courses for teachers of Functional Skills maths and English using a new set of materials, developed by Pye Tait Consulting on behalf of the Foundation, to support the teaching and learning of these qualifications.

The content of the materials is engaging and will help build learner confidence. They’re appropriate to a range of contexts, including 16-19 learners, apprentices, adult returners and learners in prisons, and can be used in both high and low-tech teaching environments.

The offer comprises:

  • Interactive webinars introducing the materials and how they can be used. You can find a list of dates and times here and book your place here.
  • One-day practitioner CPD courses that will enable practitioners to explore the Functional Skills subject materials in depth and understand the underpinning approaches that shape them.
  • Two-day, in-house CPD courses that will enable teams of Functional Skills teachers to receive bespoke support to meet their learners’ needs and secure high-quality learning outcomes.

Bookings are now open through the links above. If you can’t find a course or date to suit you, please complete one of the register your interest forms below.

This is a great opportunity to develop and enhance your professional practice, and we expect demand for places to be high so do book soon!
