Supporting technical teachers to develop embedded English, maths and digital skills into technical subject teaching
A range of T Level Professional Development (TLPD) opportunities are now available for booking. The aim of TLPD is to ensure further education and post-16 providers are T Level ready, and that technical teachers are supported to develop embedded English, maths and digital skills into their technical subject teaching.
Embedded English, maths and digital skills have been identified in the T Level technical education programmes as core competencies that will be assessed alongside technical skills. Consequently, technical teachers may need support with approaches for developing English, maths and digital literacies with learners.
TLPD is offered as a four-part series:
- An introductory course, which introduces teachers to developing embedded English, maths and digital skills in the context of T Level programmes.
- 3 specialist e-Learning modules that focus specifically upon developing embedded English, maths or digital skills for T Levels.
- 3 specialist 1 day face-to-face sessions that focus specifically upon developing T level expertise in English, maths or digital skills.
- 3 interactive webinars that focus specifically upon the practical application of learning undertaken during the introductory, e-Learning and English, maths or digital face-to-face sessions.
Each course builds upon the one before, helping technical teachers identify the core and specialist English, maths and digital literacies needed in their subject specialism, and recognise that in the workplace, these ‘techno-mathematical literacies’ are part of everyday working life. The overriding aim of each course is to support technical teachers to develop engaging and accessible strategies for developing embedded English, maths and digital literacies and promote the use and value of them for employment, learning and wider life.
During and following each course, technical teachers will be invited to engage with the ETF’s (2014) Professional Standards and encouraged to use them as they plan and reflect upon their training and development needs.
