Skills for Life
The layout of the PECF
The PECF covers both literacy and numeracy skills.
It is set out in milestones.
The introduction section should be read in detail. It offers very useful advice and guidance to practitioners.
The introduction section also contains the grid that shows the abbreviations used in referencing.
In the heart of the document you will find the milestones, skills and indicators on the left hand side, while the right hand pages offer examples of activities, etc. These are useful to check your thinking against.
Milestones 1a – 3b tend to be used with learners who are functioning at the very earliest level of communication development.
