How It Works

Each programme is held on a new and unique interactive interface where learners can access interesting, up to date and engaging learner led resources. These programmes will mainly take place in the classroom environment. Tutors will use the interface to guide learners through each learner led activity. Tutors and learners can also access ‘e’ learning in their own time, either as extension activities to support and challenge learners or as homework. These are available on the REED NCFE Moodle.

Each programme contains:

  • Tutor access to the interactive interface and Moodle
  • Learner logins for Moodle 
  • 25 ‘e’ interactive learner resources
  • An online assessment challenge
  • A scheme or work
  • Session plans
  • Tutor notes
How it works

What They Do

Based upon research carried out by James Reed in association with Harvard University and our brokerage teams our range of learning programmes are ideally placed to give you a competitive advantage in a difficult jobs market.

All three programmes are very focussed on progression for the learner and each one is blended with both paper based and interactive learner led activities.
We cover topics such as; how to demonstrate mindset to make learners 3 times more likely to get an interview and a job; how to develop a winning CV for Apprenticeships or work experience; how to search for hidden opportunities and; how to demonstrate appropriate behaviour in work.

what it does

Why it matters...

“The teaching and learning programme has been a great part of developing learners skills and ensuring that they increase their employment opportunities and secure sustainable employment. The programme has had a direct positive effect on learners progression whether that is a relevant work placement, securing part time work or full time work, or even an apprenticeship. “ (Tutor)

“We found the learners engaging and interested”. (Making the Leap)

“Learners had been well primed and came across positive in the interview process”. (Wilkinsons)

“the programme really helped grow my knowledge of how to find a job, remain calm and confident in interviews, as well as answer interview questions effectively”.
