I have never posted on the website but have just read the Charlie Brooker L2 Burger Kings article and thought the accompanying resource by Stephen Griffin was excellent!

Independent living skills

I teach intellectually disabled learners, ages 16-21, in the Buffalo, New York Public School. This is my 30th year of teaching. Skillsworkshop is an excellent web site for my classes.

Helpful construction resources

I am applying for a tutor role and have found the skills workshop to be excellent as I prepare my lesson plan for presentation at my interview.

Coded construction maths, Tools used in construction carpentry, and Decorating have been particularly helpful.

Fantastic resources!
I’m a student teacher and found this very useful for incorporating math and English into my lesson plans.
Thank you!

Thank you

Dear Ms Harnew.

I am a very inexperienced ESOL teacher in my first year of teaching Skills for Life ESOL to adults at Pre Entry and Entry 1 level. My teaching brief includes designing my lessons around the curriculum, which was really daunting.

I am writing to say how much I rely on skillsworkshop and how useful I find your worksheets and ppts.

It really is a huge thank you as I can’t afford subscriptions to sites such as onestopenglish and I rely very heavily on finding an activity to support the curriculum on skillsworkshop.

I don’t think I could teach without your help and other contributors.

Thanks very much

ICT, Literacy, Numeracy, Pre entry

The Skills Workshop site is one of the most useful and excellent resources I have come across when planning my teaching. The resources in literacy, numeracy and ICT are invaluable when planning teaching sessions.

With such a variety of ideas at different levels, especially for working with adults with learning difficulties, the activities provide exciting activities which can easily be differentiated within a mixed ability group.

Thank you for such a great resource.

SEN (Special Educational Needs)

Dear Maggie, your site is unbelievable!

I just came across it. When I looked at the list of centres which use your site, I was amazed.

I am going to register but I wanted to tell you what an inspiration you have been. I just hope the enormous effort is worthwhile for you.
