A busy summer
After the fantastic celebrations at the end of our 17/18 academic year, it was all hands-on deck to update our existing courses and start to develop the new programmes. As a Family and Community Learning tutor, I have the privilege of working with a great team and a variety of learners with interesting lives. I am working with a group of learners in Mere at the moment who are working towards a Functional Skills Maths qualification. Some of them have already achieved their Functional Skills Level 2 English and are getting closer to reaching their ambitions. Some of them have been experiencing different courses that we offer before they signed up for a course that was just for them. Our courses often include working with your children and nothing beats the excitement for the children than having their parents working alongside them in the classroom. The benefits for both are endless and proven.
I'm also about to start providing our new Employability courses in Trowbridge.
These courses really focus on:
- A future for each individual which will support them in reaching their goals and aspirations
- Allowing them to dream big and achieve
I have spent a lot of the summer developing these courses with the aim of providing new and exciting opportunities for those individuals who find themselves stuck in a rut and are not sure how to get out the other side. We are offering the Functional Skills qualifications as part of this offer.
Gaining qualifications can be daunting but we provide a safe and relaxing environment where you meet new people and make new friends whilst learning about English or Maths over twenty sessions.
The Functional Skills English and Maths courses give you the time and space to learn at your own pace while challenging you to achieve at a higher level than you thought possible. I try and make my sessions fun and interactive. I sometimes start the session with a quick activity about something that's going on in the world which often sparks off some interesting conversations and this all adds to the learners' experience. So, it's not all multiplying and dividing or spelling and punctuating it's interesting and fun too.
