Thank you for joining us on the 26th.

This event would not have been possible without our sponsors NCFE and FEpod.

Please find a recording of the whole event below, along with a schedule of the day linked to each part in the video.

We’re NCFE: an educational charity and leader in vocational and technical learning. We combine over 170 years of education experience with deep insight, working with a network of expert collaborators to galvanise the technical and vocational education sector around the greatest learning needs and to shape smarter solutions. In doing this, we’re working for a fairer education system for all learners to power inclusivity and choice.

In 1848, we were born from the belief that no learner was left behind. Today, we’re taking up that cause with fresh energy.

We provide Functional Skills qualifications that provide an alternative route to students for English and maths, from entry level 1 to level 2. Our Functional Skills come with 6 day results turnaround for all our on demand assessments, including paper-based, online and remote invigilated assessments.

Our Core Maths qualification is ideal for students who have achieved a Grade 4 or above in GCSE mathematics and would like to do a maths qualification that supports them in everyday applications of maths. This level 3 certificate supports post-16 students, particularly those affected by loss of learning in the past 2 years, with the development of their maths knowledge which will allow them to improve their achievement in other subjects and enable them to progress to further academic or vocational education, or employment.

We also offer bite-sized English and maths solutions allow you to build a flexible learning programme that can be used as intervention, confidence building and as alternative qualifications. These qualifications are ideal for SEND, ESOL and disengaged learners who will benefit from content that’s practical in nature and come without the need for a final assessment. You can mix and match these from a huge range of units.

What is FEPod?

FEPod helps learners achieve the qualifications they need. Our award-winning content, developed and written with tutors and lecturers, is designed to support users at every stage of their learning journey.

From diagnostic assessments to accessible videos with clear explanations of the essential skills and knowledge, everything a learner needs is available in one place. Our Further Education package includes GCSE English and Maths (including targeted resit courses), plus Functional Skills English and Maths for Entry 3, Level 1 and Level 2. Evidence of learner attainment and engagement is easily tracked at a group and individual level in addition to effortless reporting and sharing of information.

Representing FEpod on the day is Alison Vine from Kidderminster College

I initially trained as an ESOL teacher and have been teaching to non-English speakers for 16 years, working exclusively with adult learners.

I joined Kidderminster College 7 years ago as an ESOL lecturer, but since then I have also been involved in the Functional Skills provision. I now head up both ESOL and Functional Skills and am lead IV for the college for this area.
