Free training for trainee teachers on web-based toolkit Skilled to go
The Office of Fair Trading is offering free workshops for Skills for Life teacher trainees to introduce its web-based toolkit for adult education, Skilled to go. Training can be delivered at your premises for literacy, numeracy or ESOL-specific trainees, or mixed groups.
Skilled to go is a free web-based toolkit that uses everyday consumer situations as contexts for learning numeracy and literacy. LLU+ created the resources, which help learners to develop the skills, knowledge and confidence to choose a mobile phone, keep safe online, avoid scams or deal with the challenges of buying and running a car. With new content added in July 2010, there are now five modules to download, with comprehensive Teachers' notes, a User guide and curriculum referencing to the Adult core curricula and Functional Skills standards. Over 4500 teachers have accessed the resources so far.
