ICAN led an excellent project with our local work based learning providers, developing an Entry/Level 1 WorkSkills curriculum designed to engage some of their most vulnerable learners. ICAN provided an end to end service, from developing attractive teaching materials in response to learners needs, through to assessment, internal verification and liaison with the awarding body. ICAN staff went into five different organisations, modelling good teaching and then coaching their staff so that they could deliver it for themselves. Sophia was a consummate professional throughout, making everything seem easy. She listened carefully to understand our needs, wrote creative and engaging learning materials and demonstrated an outstanding standard of teaching.
The results have been exceptional, with over 100 of the most vulnerable young people achieving Workskills qualifications in the first phase and each organisation now mainstreaming the activities into their ongoing work.
