Post 16 Projects

This year we have two Work Groups specific to Level 3 Mathematics, Developing Pedagogy (in A-level Maths) and Core Maths.

If you are interested in participating in the Embedding Technology Work Group please contact us as neighbouring Maths Hubs may be running the Work Group.

Developing A Level Pedagogy (including Use of Technology)

This Work Group provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students.

Work Groups aim to develop and sustain regional communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Mathematics.

The focus of this Work Group is on developing pedagogy in A level Maths teaching and development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college.

Supporting Post-16 GCSE Resit Work Groups

Work Groups will explore effective ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students and effective ways of working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE. Participants will, through collaboration and experimentation, deepen their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum demands of GCSE Maths and their awareness of pedagogical approaches that best support students taking GCSE for the second time.

Participants’ departments will, through shared good practice, become more effective at teaching GCSE resit, for example by wider and more confident use of teaching approaches such as barmodelling, multiplicative reasoning or realistic contextualisation.

Provision will also be influenced by understanding the unfolding support that will be required for transition to the post-16 environment with awarded grades rather than examination result.
