Why learn handwriting?

Handwriting is still very useful away from computers. It also adds a personal touch.

Quick tips for tutors

Handwriting includes:

  • The importance of legibility.
  • Strategies for improving handwriting.
  • Using handwriting within a spelling programme.
  • Analysing your handwriting.

What do the levels mean?

Skillswise uses the levels of the National Qualifications Framework, which start at Entry 1, 2 and 3 and then go to Level 1 and Level 2.  

  • Entry 3 covers the basic concepts and is a good preparation for starting a Level 1 course.
  • Level 1 is roughly equivalent to a GCSE D-G grade in England, Northern Ireland and Wales, and a Foundation level at Standard Grade in Scotland.
