The Education and Training Foundation (ETF) has added new dates for the popular free embedding maths and English in apprenticeships interactive webinars in May and June.
For the new dates, the ETF has updated and enhanced the series of webinars to incorporate home working and online learning. The ETF is committed to supporting education providers in adapting and innovating to continue to support their apprentices.
The updated webinars include providing strategies to adapt activities such as assessment, keeping learners motivated using technology as well as supporting good practice for future working conditions.
The new webinar dates are now available to book via the ETF’s booking system.
The webinars are part of a fully subsidised, flexible CPD package to help staff embed maths and English in workplace training delivery. Relating maths and English to authentic workplace practices can help apprentices to see the relevance, improving motivation and learning outcomes. The aim of the CPD package is to support better retention and achievement of apprentices, improve apprenticeship success rates and help employers to build a skilled workforce.
The ETF’s CPD package is based around four topics:
- Embedding strategies: How to work towards an embedded approach to the delivery of maths and English in apprenticeships
- Resources: How to find and use appropriate resources for an embedded approach, including resources to upskill your staff involved in apprenticeship delivery
- Assessment: How to identify appropriate assessment methods for effective embedding
- Inclusivity: How to support inclusivity for the effective delivery of maths and English in apprenticeships.
Each webinar is linked to an online module which builds on its content. The online modules are also available free of charge through the ETF’s Foundation Online Learning website.
The training is designed for all staff involved in creating and delivering maths and English training for apprentices, both subject-specific and vocational training staff in learning providers, as well as apprenticeship supervisors, learning mentors and assessors in the workplace.
