Gateway Qualifications was pleased to be among the organisations that exhibited at The Skills Conference 2020 yesterday (10th March 2020), which took place at King Power Stadium in Leicester.

If you didn’t manage to attend, or if you’re just curious about what the event involves, we have created a Twitter Moment to capture a range of views and photos that happened at the event:

About the event

The Skills Conference is an event for anybody involved in the delivery or management of functional skills, GCSE English and Maths programmes and seeks to address the most prominent issues in the skills sector head-on. This year, the conference included a combination of keynote sessions, workshops and open forums, which made for an exciting and varied programme.

Awards ceremony

The conference also played host to an awards ceremony that rewarded the quality and diversity of educational delivery as well as dedicated members of Maths and English teaching staff throughout the country. There were three categories of awards presented on the day:

  • Provider of the Year: Nelson & Colne College
  • English Teacher of the Year: Harriet Deverill, Paragon Skills
  • Maths Teacher of the Year: Mahdi Radmehr, College of Haringey, Enfield and North East London

What we showcased at the event

Those who visited our stand were offered a selection of resources that could help with the delivery and planning of lessons. These were very popular with delegates, so if you missed your opportunity to pick some up, or if you didn’t make it to the conference, please download a copy below.

Our Embedding English and Maths guidance explains how English and maths units can be delivered within vocational or employability qualifications.

We also showed off our new Essential Digital Skills qualifications banner, and invited attendees to our next webinar: Are you ready for Essential Digital Skills qualifications?

Our brief guide Essential Digital Skills Qualifications are coming… was also of interest to delegates keen to find out more about the new Entry Level 3 and Level 1 qualifications being developed to meet the DfE’s national standards and available from August 2020 as a fully funded entitlement for adults.

Our expansion in digital skills also brings opportunities to work with us and we were keen to chat to any attendees who are keen to help us with this as well as benefit from the CPD and extra income that it can provide. A variety of current vacancies are available, with more information about each one on our contract vacancies page.
