T Level Professional Development: Embedding maths, English and digital skills into technical subject teaching

A range of professional development opportunities designed to support technical teachers to embed maths, English and digital skills into their technical subject teaching are now available for booking. They are part of the Education and Training Foundation’s (ETF’s) T Level Professional Development (TLPD) offer.

Embedded English, maths and digital skills have been identified in the T Level programmes as core competencies that will be assessed alongside technical skills. Consequently, technical teachers may need support with approaches for developing maths, English, and digital literacies with learners.

This part of the TLPD offer is offered as a four-part series:

  • an introductory course, which introduces teachers to embedded maths, English and digital skills in the context of T Level programmes
  • three specialist e-Learning modules that focus specifically upon developing embedded maths, English or digital skills for T Levels
  • three specialist one-day, face-to-face sessions that focus specifically upon developing T level expertise in maths, English or digital skills
  • three 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 of these builds upon the one before, helping technical teachers identify the core and specialist maths, English, 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 maths, English, 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.
