Teaching Functional Skills but don't have a subject-specific teaching qualification?

These Level 5 CPD modules will enable you to become conversant with effective practice and to teach Functional Skills maths and/or English with confidence. 


Who are the CPD modules for?

These courses, one for maths and one for English,  are aimed at both new teachers of Functional Skills, and those already teaching but possibly recently transferred from other areas, including vocational teachers and assessors. They're particularly suitable for those who do not currently hold a subject-specific teaching qualification. They're designed to meet the needs of all parts of the sector, including independent training providers, offender learning and adult and community education.

You will have the knowledge and confidence to: 

  • motivate and engage reluctant learners and address barriers to maths learning

  • use active approaches to develop learners' skills
  • contextualise and apply maths to vocational learning and meaningful and everyday situations
  • develop learners' problem solving and decision-making skills
  • use assessment for learning approaches to support Functional Maths
  • prepare learners for the requirements of summative assessment.
