Outstanding teaching, learning and assessment: case study on operational project led by Stanmore College

Principal focus of the project

The focus was on understanding initial perceptions of both teachers and learners of literacy learning and how these may affect learning, and aimed to set up a support network for remote courses and develop staff confidence in delivering functional skills at the partner organisation to the college through shared resources.

What is this about and what were the main findings?

An understanding of how subject specific resources can be used to support English was developed, and staff confidence in delivering embedded English was improved. A wider understanding of the implications of underdeveloped English skills explicitly in teaching was also reported. Increased project visibility for all stakeholders from the inception was found to be essential.
