Below are the courses that we currently offer.
Mathematical thinking and the new GCSE
This Work Group offers teachers and their departments nationally coordinated support to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment in the new GCSE.
Many departments will be considering not only the long-term development of these skills across KS3 and into KS4, but also the immediate needs of current KS4 pupils facing the challenges of the new GCSE. This Work Group aims to support both these aspects through professional development activities focusing on practical and accessible classroom-based approaches.
Participation also offers the opportunity to develop departmental professional development processes and produce longer-term improvement plans.
Target audience: KS4 Teachers and Coordinators
Year 5-8 Continuity
This Work Group aims to help teachers improve the chances of pupils experiencing a smooth transition in their maths learning between primary and secondary school. The Work Group will address key issues by looking at a specific curriculum area, or pedagogical theme and collaboratively developing models of continuity of approach that support pupils through the transition phase.
More information will follow.
