Workshop Details

Workplace training has been described as ‘the hardest job you ever had’. It’s also possibly the most rewarding and effective form of tutoring. 

This course is designed to equip workplace LLN tutors with a process for designing and delivering effective, contextualised provision. This process supports tutors to identify priority learning areas, use assessment results, and design targeted instruction. 

This course is part 1 of a two-part series of workshops, designed to be completed consecutively. The first course, ‘Developing professional practice’, develops essential components of workplace professional practice and the second, Extending professional practice’, develops more specialist knowledge.  Practitioners can attend the second without the first, but some prior knowledge is expected.  

Learning outcomes 

  • Identify and write specific workplace language, literacy or numeracy learning outcomes 
  • Design targeted and sequenced learning plans 
  • Explore/adapt a range of language, literacy and numeracy strategies to workplace contexts. 

Who is this course for? 

This course is recommended for more experienced practitioners seeking to extend or verify their understanding and practice as well as a relevant specialisation. (Tapatoru Pūkenga Papa Toru – Level 3)
