Level 3 Award in English for Literacy/Language Teaching

The course has been designed to meet the criteria for the Level 3 Award in English for Literacy/Language Teaching. Although the focus is on personal skill development, whenever possible and / or relevant, reference will be made to teaching approaches – in particular the teaching of functional English and GCSE.

For example, can you:

  • Understand and different linguistic devices?
  • Explain how reading and writing are social, multi-modal practices?
  • Notice aspects of language in use?
  • Understand the relevance of schematic knowledge when reading and listening?

Course aim

The course is designed to develop your English skills up to Level 3, to give you the confidence and subject knowledge to teach learners up to Level 2, including supporting them with the academic aspects of GCSE.

Learning outcomes

  • Analysing English language for literacy and language teaching
  • Reading skills for literacy and language teaching
