Vocational Revitaliser: an introduction (Maths and English)

We are currently running  ‘Vocational Revitaliser: an introduction (Maths and English) one-day courses across England. You can attend or host one of the following:

  • Vocational Revitaliser: an introduction (English)
  • Vocational Revitaliser: an introduction (Maths)
  • Vocational Revitaliser: an introduction (Joint English and Maths)

This can be for a mixed audience or contextualised to a specific vocational area, such as construction or early years. If you would like to explore the different options, contact us.

This course is subsidised by the Education and Training Foundation through their ‘Maths and English Pipeline‘.

Course aim

Vocational Revitaliser: an introduction will help vocational practitioners (assessors, trainers and teachers) to identify and develop English and/or maths embedded in their subject area, and learn techniques to develop their learners’ confidence and abilities in maths/ English.

Practitioners attending these courses will improve their confidence to enhance learners’ English and/or maths development. By doing things in a different way, teachers can help learners improve their English and/or maths at the same time as developing vocational skills.

*Please note if you wish to hold a joint English and maths vocational revitaliser we will be staffing it with two trainers.  We will need to make sure we have a large cohort size – ideally 30 – to maximize resource and ensure a conducive learning experience as we split the group into two with half with the maths trainer, and half with the English trainer in the morning, and then a swap in the afternoon.


By taking part in our blended and personalised Vocational Revitaliser programme, we hope you are inspired to take your own English or Maths learning further. If so there are several options available to you.
