I have create these three PPTs for the three FS exams. I have aimed to create short PPTs to help ease some of the stress and pitfalls of the Level 1 exams. They are based around feedback and advice I have obtained from City and Guilds, students and tutors. Although written for C&G Functional Skills most of the information will be relevant any FS awarding body.

This is a resource I developed, prior to the May 2011 referendum, to use as part of ‘language for expressing opinions’ at E3 Level. It’s quite basic but can be developed in different ways for classes of different levels. It is based the Victor the Vote Counter video available on YouTube or www.aboutmyvote.co.uk

This is a fun, short warm up activity to energise learners at the start of the lesson. It asks students to make a decision on a question and either stand up or sit down depending on their views.

I use it with my Foundation learners, as I teach them maths at 9am in the morning and sometimes they need a short activity to engage them!

Two different versions are included. Some of the questions are not for the faint-hearted but all can be easily edited to suit your own learners.
