November 4th session considered ESOL students and how these could be supported although such students wouldn't necessarily be seen as appropriate candidates for e2e in th LSC's eyes. We also had a good overview of the Skills for Life initiative in a previous session, highlighting the governments commitments to upskilling the nation.
Looking back at the assessments we use with students after attending these sessions, I think it is important to establish levels from the start of their time with you. However, they need to be given activities where there are plenty of opportunities to succeed in and amongst standard basic skills tests that they may struggle with. Equally when going through their results, feedback needs to be given in the form of celebrating what the students can already do and how we can build on this.
