The ETF are seeking a tenderer to explore workforce needs and capability around the embedding and the teaching of embedded maths and English skills in the post-16 Further Education (FE) sector.
This research project aims to establish:
-The number of vocational/technical teachers currently required to embed maths and English in vocational/technical programmes at Entry Levels, Levels 1 and 2 – including to what extent these are different teachers from those who will teach T Levels.
-How maths and English is currently embedded in vocational/technical programmes at Levels 1 and 2. Has this changed, and is specific support required?
-To what extent are vocational/ technical teachers responsible for teaching Functional Skills and to what extent do they work in partnership with subject teachers?
-What training needs are there, specifically for vocational/technical teachers teaching programmes at Entry Levels, Levels 1 and 2? (including how much, what kind of support is needed, and in what format?)
