Creative Education is offering a new set of British Council core skills courses across England under the new Connecting Classrooms programme. ‚ÄėTeaching the core skills‚Äô training packages give teachers the knowledge and approaches they need to effectively integrate the teaching of core skills in the classroom.
Woodfield Teaching School Alliance works in collaboration with Creative Education to deliver this set of courses in a school environment.
What are core skills?
Core skills are the essential skills that young people need to be fully prepared for life and work in a global economy. Sometimes referred to as deep learning skills, they introduce young people to new ways of working, new ways of thinking and new ways of living in a global world.
All of the¬†programmes are suitable for any qualified teaching staff, from all sectors ranging from EYFS to FE, including special schools and PRUs.
Unfortunately we are¬†only¬†able to accept teachers based within state schools or colleges in England. If you are based elsewhere or¬†internationally¬†please visit the¬†British Council¬†website. For more information about any of these programmes, please email¬†Roxanne Spalding¬†or call ¬†020 8253 8249.
There are six core skills training packages available to teachers across England. Each programme will be taught over a 9/10-week period, with 2 face-to-face sessions taking place at the beginning and end, as well as webinars and online support throughout. You can find the course descriptions below.
