Developing Curriculum Strategies of Embedded Functional Skills - A Research Project Focused On Topics That Interest 14-16 Year Olds

Functional Skills is not a term that young people are used to these days and it is complicated to explain what it means. However by explaining what they will gain through completing Maths and English transferrable skills their approach to them is much better. The difficulty is finding that link or topic that will help to develop the curriculum and make learning about functional skills that much easier.

This research project will be looking at developing curriculum strategies of embedded functional skills so that young people are developing and applying the skills through topics that interest them without realising they are doing Maths and English
