About these resources

A learner

These new teaching and learning resources for Construction and the built environment (CBE) offer a rich mix of creative, practical ideas and activities to help you create learning experiences. You can:

  • help your learners develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours that lead to success in their field
  • construct dynamic action plans for your own professional development.

The aim of these resources is to provide inspiration, support and ideas to help you to broaden your range of active teaching and learning methods. They also provide practical examples of how you can embed naturally occurring literacy, language and numeracy learning.

The resources have been created with teachers and, crucially, with their learners. They worked collaboratively in national trials and pilots. They identified new ways of planning and managing learning, taking account of learners' experiences, interests and the wide range of environments in which learning can take place. Learners were encouraged to 'take the driving seat', to think about how they learn most effectively and to take more control of their learning plans. A wide range of employers in the CBE sectors have also been involved in the development of the resources to ensure that they foster the skills and attitudes people need to succeed in employment.
