Meaningful maths and English

The Meaningful maths and English resource pack is designed to help teachers across the FE and skills sector to teach Entry and pre-Entry level maths and English in a way that engages learners with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).

The resources in this pack show you how to make maths and English meaningful to learners by linking them directly to work-related or life skills activities. The pack contains a teacher guidebook, activities to help learners understand the importance of maths and English in work and everyday life, teaching and learning resources and a CPD activity for teachers and support staff.

The pack has been developed for the Education and Training Foundation by Natspec and four of its member colleges: Communication Specialist College Doncaster, Derwen College, Foxes Academy and The Mount Camphill Community.
