Developing subject knowledge and pedagogy (GCSE mathematics)

Maths teachers are needed to teach the growing number of 16-19 GCSE maths learners across the education and training sector. This course will:

  • Up-skill new or experienced teachers to lead GCSE maths courses in their organisations.
  • Support practitioners working with young adults (16 -19s) who are re-taking GCSE maths, having achieved lower than a grade C at school (or grade 4 in the new 1- 9 grading structure).
  • Explore and model how to engage and motivate reluctant learners and assess their needs to build on prior learning.
  • Critically examine effective practice in teaching GCSE maths.

This course is subsidised by the Education and Training Foundation through their ‘Maths and English Pipeline‘.
