Tutors/ Trainers/ Teachers/ Practitioners delivering Functional Skills who feel confident with their own maths Functional Skills to Level 2 and supporting learners with their development towards successful completion of Functional Skills maths end assessment.

Delegates would typically be employed within organisations that deliver Functional Skills maths to Apprentices where vocational delivery teams/staff do not feel confident to support learners with their maths development or where capacity for more confident delivery and integration of maths into programmes.

Typically organisations delivering Apprenticeships where maths is supported as part of the main programme and capacity with Numeracy subject specialists does not fully meet the demand will benefit e.g. Independent Training Providers/ Colleges/ Employer Providers

Please note that these workshop sessions are updated from the successful face to face workshops completed in 2019 with a slight shift to support online delivery, as well as face to face.
