Applying minimum core within our own practise
It is important to both the learners and tutors as this enables us to understand the importance of basic literacy, language, numeracy and ICT skills required for us to participate in the public sector. In every session the tutor will embed literacy, language, numeracy and ICT practises. Literacy skills are embedded by a range of questioning techniques verbal and non-verbal, this shows active listening and response by the learners. Reading skills the tutor is aware of different approaches these include paper based and computer systems, the learners to recognise and understand written text. A wide range of relevant sources of information should be used to meet the differentiation needs for each learner. The writing skills should show spelling, grammar and punctuation to be accurate, the size of text and font size is appropriate and easily read.
Embedding language skills require the tutors to express themselves clearly, and use a range of communication techniques to help the learner understand what is required of them. Within the language use a logical sequence that make a connection to the subject being taught. Tone and style should be used in a way that is recognised by the tutor and learner.
The tutor and learner require numeracy skills, this is embedded into the session by the use of diagrams, graphs and charts, within our own practise the learners have to know the strengths of peroxide using percentages and how to reduce the strength, and this is carried out by the use of measurement.
Review ways in which minimum core elements can be demonstrated in assessing learners in lifelong learning
“Minimum core elements can be used to support assessing learners in lifelong learning and this is done by incorporating literacy, numeracy and ICT in the assessment questions that are being set.” The assessment questions should be set in such a way that the answers given by the student should demonstrate that the...
