Level 1 Foundation Skills - Literacy

FNDLIT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Miss H. Shears

Foundation Skills - Literacy

We will begin by practicing our communication and teamwork skills. We will learn how to come to decisions within a group by holding an informal meeting and then organise a group activity for the class. We will then write a short report about our experiences.

Our second focus will be on becoming ready for work. We will investigate a career option and use this information to design an informative power point to share with the class. We will write a CV  and prepare for an informal job interview, as well as  practice completing the forms required when you are working. We will then consider the rights and responsibilities of employees.

Tasks within this course are designed to meet the requirements of the level 1 literacy portfolio.
