Workshop Details

This course will extend tutors’ use of assessment options and resources, understanding of learner thinking, and support them to stay fresh and creative. It covers both literacy and numeracy provision and includes a range of instructional approaches, activities and resources.  

This course is part 2 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 

  • Use diagnostic assessment to identify learner needs
  • Develop highly effective learning plans 
  • Design and deliver effective learning events 

Who is this in-house workshop for? 

This workshop 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)
