3.1 review ways in which elements of the minimum core can be demonstrated in planning inclusive learning and teaching

minimum core is a way of the tutor imbedding functional skills such as English and Maths in to learner cohorts. there is many examples of ways this can be achieved. use of electronic white board activities promotes English and ICT skills allowing students to a more present approach  in learning. handouts are a more common resource that have to be correctly produced to ensure learners have quantity and direction in learning.

In my particular specialism learners have to develop all functional skills this is achieved in a dispensing process. learners have to understand basic English to produce clear labels with directional points to patients, maths is imbedded with routine counting of medicines and decanting medicines into boxes working out supplies for either days, weeks or months. ICT is a common ailment of dispensing in the present day as the majority of labels are electronically produced. pharmacy is a fast moving specialised area that has to ensure the tutor is familiar with up to date approaches to learning. regular CPD session promotes minimum core skills in tutors which can be provided to a more effective learning environment.   


  1. Humans are the only creatures with the ability to dive deep in the sea, fly high in the sky, send instant messages around the globe, reflect on the past, assess the present and imagine the future. See the link below for more info.


  2. Active learning requires students to participate in class, as opposed to sitting and listening quietly. Strategies include, but are not limited to, brief question-and-answer sessions, discussion integrated into the lecture, impromptu writing assignments, hands-on activities and experiential learning events. As you think of integrating active learning strategies into your course, consider ways to set clear expectations, design effective evaluation strategies and provide helpful feedback.
