Cross Phase – Supporting Students to Achieve a L2 Qualification in Mathematics
Identify and meet the needs of students continuing L2 study at post-16
This is for teachers whose students will study Level 2 maths across secondary and post-16. Teachers of Years 10 and 11, and of post-16 GCSE Maths resit and/or Functional Skills Maths, will develop ways to support students who need to study maths beyond age 16 to achieve a L2 qualification.
Work Groups will focus on developing transferable teaching techniques aligned to teaching for mastery. Participants will attend three full-day workshops and complete practice-based tasks between sessions.
What will you learn?
  • Your students will demonstrate a positive attitude to maths
  • You will ensure that lesson design and pedagogy demonstrate a secure knowledge of curriculum continuity and sequencing
  • You will understand the importance of consistency of language and representations relating to specific curriculum areas
  • You and your colleagues will make collaboration a normal part of transition, supporting students continuing to work towards a L2 maths qualification
Who can take part?
This is for teachers of GCSE Maths, and for those teaching GCSE Maths resit and/or Functional Skills Maths. Participants may be based in secondary schools, UTCs, FE colleges, Sixth Form colleges, schools with post-16 provision, or other post-16 settings.
There will be the equivalent of 3 days in total for this Work Group that will be spread over the year. 
What is the cost?
The Cross Phase – Supporting Students to Achieve a L2 Qualification in Mathematics project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to state-funded participating schools/colleges.
