Embedding English and Maths

Practical Strategies for FE and Post-16 Tutors

By Terry Sharrock

In the UK, further education (FE) tutors and other post-16 tutors are increasingly being asked to embed and develop English and Mathematics skills in their lessons. However, such tutors may lack confidence or the required background knowledge to do this, or they may be struggling to find ideas that will engage and motivate their learners. Specifically written for use within vocational contexts, this book provides a theoretical understanding of the issues involved, including barriers to learning and how to overcome these. In addition, it offers a range of practical strategies and ideas to get a tutor started, and to build confidence and competence in the learners. Each activity is accompanied by detailed notes that highlight key learning points, the development of vocational skills, and extension opportunities. *** Librarians: ebook available (Series: Further Education) [Subject: Vocational Education]
