This is a selection of “non-ForSkills” videos that we think are useful and, crucially, up-to-date and relevant following the Ofqual review of the exam boards last year plus a “ted-ed” talk about maths as a language.
Welcome to Functional Skills English – a 2 minute animated video that is good to show learners what the Functional Skills curriculum is all about.
Embedding maths in your teaching – a 7 minute animated video that covers examples from several vocational areas.
How to pass English Reading Level 2 – broadly based on the latest Edexcel specification, but relevant across the wider spectrum, a longer 12 minute video that will help tutors prepare their learners.
Maths as a language – an 8 minute ted-ex talk that could be fantastic in supporting learners who just “don’t get” maths. Won’t work for everyone but it will for some. If you want a quick dip into this video, try watching from about 3:30.
