Event Details

Aim

Level 1 Functional English continues to be a key qualification offered on a range of programmes to learners of very mixed ability. This training day reviews some key teaching strategies and active learning approaches that can be used on both discrete and embedded delivery models to engage learners and hold their interest. It addresses the challenges commonly presented by Functional English exams but also seeks to demonstrate how teachers can develop the underpinning reading and writing skills that learners need in order to success in their vocational areas and to progress to Level 2 Functional English or GCSE English programmes.

Content
