Post-16 Work Groups

 

Primary focus for 2021/22: Post-16 GCSE resit pedagogy to support Covid recovery

Work Groups in this project will explore effective ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students, and effective ways of working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE in the context of Covid recovery.
 
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. This will come from wider and more confident use of teaching approaches such as bar modelling, multiplicative reasoning, realistic contextualisation or teaching for mastery.
 

New to teaching Core Maths Programmes
The purpose of this programme is to support teachers who are new to teaching Core Maths in developing specialist knowledge for teaching Core Maths and to increase their confidence in teaching the course.
The programme has a primary focus on Core Maths subject knowledge and pedagogy and will be based on these six key themes which are common to all the Core Maths specifications:
• Using contextualised problem-solving                         
• Making sense of finance
• Applying Fermi estimation and modelling                   
• Using the pre-release materials
• Developing critical analysis                                           
• Exploring statistics.
 
Technology and online teaching will be underlying themes throughout the programme.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

Core Maths Pedagogy 

Primary focus for 2021/22: Core Maths pedagogy to support Covid recovery

These Work Groups give teachers opportunities, through collaboration and experimentation, to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need to develop, and to share these with departmental colleagues. Participant departments will support the role of Core Maths in promoting contextualised problem-solving and links to teaching in other subject areas.
 
Lead participants in these Work Groups will be experienced and developing teachers of Core Maths. These may be teachers in post-16 settings whose main subject is maths or whose main subject is not maths. This Work Group is for schools and colleges in at least their second year of teaching Core Maths.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

A-Level Pedagogy 
Primary focus for 2021/22: A level pedagogy to support Covid recovery
This project provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to support Covid recovery, to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students, and the development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college. It aims to develop and sustain local communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Maths.
 
The project is aimed at teachers in schools/colleges/departments that want to develop one or more aspects of their A level pedagogy to support Covid recovery. It would be suitable for existing leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers of A level Maths who wish to lead the development of pedagogy in A level teaching with other colleagues in their own or other schools.
 
Teachers who will find this Work Group particularly useful include those who may have already completed other A level subject knowledge and pedagogy courses (such as Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) or Preparing to Teach A level Mathematics), and who are able to work with other colleagues in their own or other schools.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
