A commitment to Skills for Life as an integral part of Train to Gain delivery

3 Train to Gain delivery Why include Skills for Life as part of TtG delivery? Literacy and numeracy skills are needed for most jobs and NVQs and many candidates wont have them at the level required. Developing Skills for Life as part of Train to Gain benefits the individual, the employer, the provider and Great Britain plc. To meet LSC requirements and expectations.

5 The Move On approach A positive opportunity for everyone – part of the training offer, not extra help with a problem Briefing of intermediaries so that they are confident and motivated to engage learners Focus on relevance to job role/NVQ Added value of an additional national qualification Clear identification of where LLN occurs in NVQ/job role to ensure relevant skills are developed effectively
6 A positive approach How do you ensure that everyone in your team understands the importance of a positive approach? The way in which teachers, both vocational and LLN specialists, introduce LLN is crucial to motivating learners and developing positive learner attitudes.

7 Expectations and good practice All candidates will have an initial assessment for literacy and numeracy. Those who do not already have skills at level 2 in both literacy and numeracy will have the opportunity to develop them. The results of Initial Assessment will be used to plan learning. Where a provider does not offer Skills for Life, they will work in partnership with one who does. Provision will be delivered flexibly to meet the needs of employers and individuals, and to support workplace performance and NVQ achievement. Candidates will be prepared for and achieve national SfL qualifications (65% MLP).
8 Delivery needs to be: accessible directly relevant to NVQ/job role responsive to candidates starting points and needs successful in preparing candidates to achieve national qualifications planned, guided, taught or supported by skilled and appropriately qualified staff monitored and evaluated affordable.
