18. In 2008 Learning for Living started to include Literacy / Numeracy into programme content, <br />this lead to embedding of Literacy / Numeracy<br /><ul><li>Had to make the accrual of literacy and numeracy skills central to our new delivery programme
19. Mental arithmetic was to be encouraged
20. Report writing, spelling and grammar were to be included
33. BIG Problem!!<br />“How to include all of the theoretical knowledge at the time it was needed by the student, without sitting the student down for two hour theory lessons”<br /><ul><li>Decided to design and implement a series of “mini-teach lessons”
91. The feedback from our learners has been positive
92. We are committed to continuing to monitor the effectiveness of the new programme.
93. Quality feedback is invaluable for programme improvements – hence ongoing organic moderation
94. One of the main strengths of the new programme is that it is orally based. As our learners initial ALNAT test results vary, we can alter our delivery to suit them, this leads to a more satisfied and engaged learner being taught at an understandable level.</li></ul>IGNITE<br />Manufacturing Section, Trades Innovation Institute<br />
95. Summary <br /><ul><li>Our programme provides a fluid delivery process that can be easily altered to suit the differing levels of students’ understanding, and changes in technology.
96. In 2012 we are committed to a research programme that will look at introducing “iPads” into the practical workshop environment.
97. Our hope is that we can finally become a paperless ‘e learning’ establishment that will reflect the working environment that many of our students will be entering when they leave us.
