The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has funded the Skills and Education Group in partnership with WMCETT, to deliver two new Level 5 CPD modules to support the teaching of Functional Skills Maths and Functional Skills English.

The modules have been updated to take account of the new Functional Skills content, and are now being rolled out across the country. These courses will ensure that those responsible for teaching Functional Skills Mathematics and English are conversant with effective practice and have the confidence to teach Functional Mathematics or English to learners with skills below Level 2 and support their achievement.

These modules are aimed at both new teachers of Functional Mathematics or Functional Skills English and those already teaching, but possibly recently transferred from other areas, including vocational teachers and assessors. Contact Julie Chamberlain at WMCETT for more information. The English and maths courses can be booked via the Education and Training Foundation website.
