This highly practical workshop delivered by Paula Jones will equip you with a repertoire of teaching and learning approaches that can be used in groups or one-to-one’s. All of the activities will enable you to combine vocational content with personal, learning and thinking skills (PLTS). We will run the workshop in “train the trainer” mode, so that you have all the resources you need to show your colleagues how to use these activities. See more on PLTS Apprenticeships workshop
The course is aimed at the professional development needs of teachers or trainers in Further, Higher, Adult and Secondary Education and those who work in related areas such as health, careers, uniformed services and private training organisations.
