New Functional Skills English - Summary & Comparison - Apprenticeships

This session has two documents which I’ve created myself - specifically for purpose and generically enough for use with a range of vocational students studying English. The topic: Becoming an Apprentice.

Start with a simple pairs task. Practise determining purpose and tone, locate and summarise main points, compare and synthesise ideas…

It isn’t incredibly detailed but it does work well for reading and writing practice and it has slides with comparative phrasing - which are also A3 posters for display in the classroom. Differences are there just for reference as similarities is where the focus lies. It also shows what level of effort I put into my resources.

Please take a look at my shop - more resources are in the works

A free Punctuation book is also available from our partner GCSE English Language shop -

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! This is quite popular but no reviews =-)
