I am passionate about developing our young people. We have a moral responsibility to support them in becoming active citizens in society and in order for them to achieve this, they must be literate and numerate. Though I’m not a specialist English or maths teacher, I understand the need to provide youngsters with opportunities to deliberately practise their core skills within other sessions. In Further Education, many teachers have expertise in a particular field and English and maths is not always a strong point for them. They need ideas which they can quickly access and use in vocational lessons to support learners with their skill development. I have produced a small pocket book with a host of handy tips to develop English and/or maths in sessions. Endorsed by David Russell, CEO for the Education and Training Foundation, this book is accessible and can help any teacher, regardless of experience. Find out more by clicking here.
