Maths and English support

All 16-18 learners, and those aged 19-25 with an education health and care (EHC) plan who do not hold a GCSE grade 9-4 or A*-C are required to continue studying maths and English during each year of their study programme.

We offer a number of Maths and English resources and digital learning to help teachers and learners develop and apply maths and English skills, such as:

  • e-functional skills
  • SmartScreen Functional Skills/Functional Skills Plus
  • Maths & English e-toolkit.

We recognise that teaching maths and English can be challenging when these are not your specialist subjects, so we offer a range of short ‘How to…’ CPD training sessions to provide ideas and support on how to integrate maths, English and technology into your learning programmes.

Moderation portal

The Moderation Portal is the online administration platform used to facilitate the submission of marks and evidence and the moderation of the synoptic assignment, centre assessed components and employer involvement for Technical Qualifications.

Access the Moderation Portal >

You can download a copy of the Moderation Portal Centre User Guide which explains the process for your centre on how to upload marks and evidence.

Following our popular networking events during April for the Moderation Portal, for those of you who were not able to attend, you can still view the slides from this event.

Online teaching and support resources

We offer a range of publications for all our Technical Qualifications so you can select those that suit you best.
