Teaching Resources

The Skills Gap teaching resources,generated through facilitated collaboration between a school and industry partner, are designed to reflect current technological practice.

Skills Gap Teaching Resources

The teaching materials have been created by practising teachers in the Skills Gap programme, used in the classroom with their students and developed into a full set of resources, by the Skills Gap Team.

The teaching resources are free to use and accessible to all.   They have been tried and tested by other schools to ensure they are user-friendly and flexible for use to suit individual settings.

Each set of resources reflects the nature of the project carried out by the individual participating school and business.    The content and style may vary but, in each case, can be used either to deliver a complete project or to support aspects of your own lesson schedule. 

Introductory training and refresher material, specifically for teachers to follow, before using the project resources, is included.

FEEDBACK: Please let us know how you get on when you use the teaching resources.  Take our Survey.
