English / Communication / Computing / Maths

The adult literacy, numeracy and computing curriculum sets out the entitlement to learning for all adults who have difficulties with literacy and numeracy and ICT.

Teachers and the curriculum team at Valley College @ Tor View will use the core curriculum to develop learning programmes. They will:

  • Use information from diagnostic assessment to identify learners’ skills, both those that they already have and those that they need;
  • Draw those elements from the curriculum into the learning plan and assessment regime;
  • Use their knowledge of the learners’ context and priorities to find relevant applications where learners can practise the skills and knowledge they are acquiring;
  • Follow the progression through the standards and the curriculum elements to build a formative and summative assessment regime into the learning plan.
