English, maths and digital skills
Underpinning this strand is help in developing English, maths and digital skills in different learning environments. Drawing on best practice from other ETF programmes, this activity focusses on the teaching of these core skills which are embedded in each T Level route.
Delivered on behalf of the ETF by Claire Collins Consultancy and the West Midlands Centre for Excellence in Teacher Training (WMCETT), it includes training events on the principles of embedding, training courses and follow-up interactive webinars focussed on each skill area, and courses delivered on the ETF’s Foundation Online Learning site.
Details of these courses are available on the ETF’s booking site via the following links:
A webinar series investigates the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education’s new General Competency Frameworks and explores ways in which embedded English, maths and digital skills can be developed through T Level courses.
A webinar to help participants to identify which elements of the available CPD would be most useful for either themselves or their staff is also running on a monthly basis.
