The National Foundation Skills Strategy for Adults highlighted the importance of building foundation skills for all adult learners. But keeping abreast of new developments in this area can be a challenge for time poor practitioners.
This webinar is designed to put recent foundation skills initiatives into perspective. It will:
- introduce participants to the FSK Foundation Skills Training Package and explain how it can be used in a variety of learning environments
- highlight available support resources and professional development initiatives
- provide information on new units and skill sets for vocational practitioners who need to address foundation skills in their practice.
