At least:</p><p>1 barrier associated with the learner1 barrier associated with the tutor1 barrier associated with the delivery</p></li><li><p>Embedded teaching and learningEmbedded teaching and learning combinesthe development of literacy, language andnumeracy with vocational and other skills.The skills acquired provide learners with theconfidence, competence and motivationnecessary for them to succeed in qualifications, in life and at work.</p></li><li><p>Embedded, contextualised or learning support?LLN learning support is usually in addition to a workplace skills/vocational learning programme.</p><p>Contextualised LLN is primarily an LLN programme, not a workplace skills/vocational learning programme.</p><p>In embedded programmes, LLN learning happens through a workplace skills/vocational learning programme.</p></li><li><p>Developing LLN skillsDeveloping confidence and competence with LLN skills is therefore a part of all learning for all learners.It is also a key factor to consider when planning to include those learners who have additional support needs with literacy, language and numeracy skills.</p></li><li><p>What is embedded learning?Embedded teaching and learning</p></li><li><p>The vocational contentStarting point of any embedded learning.</p><p>Vocational skills and knowledge </p><p> Refers to the primary learning aims of the learner. Aims may be vocational, recreational or personal. They may lead to a qualification.</p><p>The embedded materials also reflect the reality of workplace and everyday settings, using realistic scenarios and documentation. </p></li><li><p>Literacy, language and numeracy</p><p>Literacy, language and numeracy </p><p> These skills are clearly defined by the adult core curricula. The embedded learning materials do not set outto teach the whole range of literacy, language and numeracy outlined by the core curricula. The range and level of skills taught is dictated by the vocational content. </p><p>Embedded learning is task-driven. </p></li><li><p>Think about your practiceDoes your practice allow for embedding?Does it occur naturally?When do you do it?Transferable skillsSLARP</p></li><li><p>Health &amp; Safety Skills for Life</p><p> Health &amp; SafetyEssential speaking &amp; listening2.
