We are also pleased to announce the launch of two new training webinars. These sessions, which have been introduced in response to feedback from webinar participants, aim to provide previous and new participants with extra ideas for embedding and delve more deeply into a selection of topics. Participants will be asked to work on an exercise in smaller groups facilitated by a trainer in the training webinars.

  • An assessment for learning approach to embedding maths and English in apprenticeships will be held at 11am on 10 February and at 11am on 10 March. Book here.
  • Using online learning to embed maths and English in apprenticeships will be held at 1pm on 15 February and at 10am on 12 March. Book here.

Although open to everyone, these two free sessions will be of particular value to those who have already attended one of the other embedding maths and English in apprenticeships webinars as they will expand on what these individuals have already learnt.

The webinars are part of a flexible CPD package to help staff embed maths and English in workplace training delivery. Relating maths and English to authentic workplace practices can help apprentices to see relevance and improve motivation and learning outcomes. The aim of the CPD package is to support better retention and achievement of apprentices, improve apprenticeship success rates and help employers to build a skilled workforce.

Webinars are also offered in-house for groups of minimum 10 people and can be delivered as part of staff development training days. To enquire about this opportunity and to book on the programme visit the ETF booking website.
