Angie taught Functional Skills and A Level English Language and is also an ITT mentor and guest teacher specialising in literacy and dyslexia.  Angie has been a GCSE examiner for 4 years and is  passionate about helping students with dyslexia and those with dyslexic traits to achieve.
Angie joined us to talk about her ETF funded OTLA project aimed at helping students who find it difficult to engage in, or get anything from, GCSE extracts.  It’s a way of collaborating with vocational teams to help them get a better understanding of what GCSE English is all about too.
