Post-16 GCSE Resit and other learners struggling to learn maths Work Group

  • by


This programme provides opportunities for participants to analyse and unpick the difficulties Foundation students encounter learning mathematics. We will look at how context and the strategies that students naturally bring to solve problems in context can help learners see connections in the GCSE curriculum and so reduce the burden on memorising procedures. This course is suitable for any teachers of Foundation GCSE, both pre and post 16.

By getting involved, participants will:

  • improve their awareness of key concepts and themes relevant to the context of GCSE resit
  • increase their awareness of appropriate pedagogies to help students make connections and deepen understanding
  • share approaches to planning and delivery of key concepts with the Work Group and with departmental colleagues
  • develop teaching and learning approaches and pedagogy to promote engagement of students

Who should attend:

This project is for teachers of post-16 GCSE Maths resit and/or any head of department where post-16 GCSE Maths resit is taught. Participants may be based in FE colleges, sixth form colleges, schools with post-16 provision or other post-16 settings.

The FREE programme consists of 5 separate training sessions.  Applications for this programme will re-open in September 2020. Register your interest today.
