Welcome to Week 2

Watch Susan introduce the learning goals for Week 2.

Welcome to Week 2 of Teaching and Assessing Core Skills.

Watch Susan introduce the learning goals for the week ahead.

Last week, we introduced the core skills and started exploring how these skills can be broken down into steps. This week, you’ll look at how to do this in more detail using the Skills Builder framework.

You’ll learn more about what the Skills Builder framework is, where it comes from and how it can be practically applied to teach smaller steps of the core skills.

Ahead of next week, you’ll also be introduced to the six principles of teaching core skills.

Over to you

  • How are the British Council core skills and the Skills Builder framework different?
  • How are they similar?
  • Why is the Skills Builder framework useful/important?
