Developing subject pedagogy and understanding (GCSE English Language) - V1.0

Summary This module was commissioned in 2015 by the Education and Training Foundation to increase capacity in the education and training workforce to deliver GCSE English Language, with the potential to be developed longer-term into a Level 5 module to sit within the Diploma of Education & Training. This module specification is for the new GCSE first being taught in September 2015. The module in particular supports practitioners working with young adults (16 - 19) who are re-taking GCSE English Language, having failed to achieve the grade they needed at school. This is why there is an emphasis in this rationale on engaging and motivating reluctant learners and assessment of learners’ needs in order to build on prior learning.
