What do teachers say about this resource? (9864)

The resource provides a range of activities to allow tutors/ teachers to check learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills before learners begin the independent coursework tasks. Every activity involves some type of useful collaboration with other learners (normally 2-4) and their requirements are designed to meet a variety of learning styles/ preferences. Activities foster active learning & team work, which are so important for level 3 success.

A wide range of activities are provided that could be used in various parts of a lesson (e.g. a quick starter/ plenary or a more substantial investigative task). Each activity comes with useful tutor guidance notes and possible answers. The results of each provides the teacher with some valuable feedback on the quality and quantity of their students’ learning, skills and confidence... letting them [the teacher] know when these students are ready to start the internal assessment. This should help with planning and meeting the specific needs of the learners.

The layout is a strong feature... immediately the reference table provides a clear overview about what is required for each activity, which topic and which learning aim it is geared towards. The accompanying teachers’ notes with aims / instructions / possible answers will be very welcome for busy teachers.
