Event Details

If you think your Functional Skills Class students have hard core behaviour issues, in this session we’ll do so much more than overturn these thoughts. Typically it’s a challenging class, not just because of the shortness of time, but also the negative connotations connected with the ‘boring’ subjects.

This is a real opportunity to wake up your students, and attendees will have access to a bucket-load of resources.  

Here's what’s covered:


Understand the triggers for short term behaviour problems

We look at the most common reasons for poor student behaviour and use proven approaches to eliminate them before they are even a problem

Strategies to increase student motivation and engagement

Methods to contradict the negativity and raise the aspirations of students by helping them to understand “Why do I need to know that?” and “What’s in it for me?”

Gain ideas for simple differentiation

The session takes on a pedagogical approach by providing examples of resources and an opportunity to share good practice

Use a variety of ways to use questioning for learning

Utilise many techniques with examples and demonstrations of questioning activities and how to use them in class. Extremely useful for quick formative assessment


Knowledge of the FS curriculum and subject knowledge is expected and the training does not cover this.



The trainer for this programme is Hilary Nunns. Hilary is a teacher and has taught on several Functional Skills programmes.  She is known for her ability to engage students to become partners in their own education, and this is neatly transferred to the FS classroom.

Fees include course resources. You'll also meet like-minded people and can share ideas and resources with them, too.


Bookings can be made directly through Eventbrite or by contacting


Can Do Courses is an OCN London registered centre.

We look forward to welcoming you to the programme.
