Projects  >  Post-16  >  Cross Phase - Supporting Low Attainers to Achieve a GCSE in Mathematics


Identify and meet the needs of students continuing L2 study at post-16

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.

What is involved?

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

What is the cost?

The Cross Phase – Supporting Low Attainers to Achieve a GCSE in Mathematics project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools/colleges.

What should you do next?

This programme is now full for 2023/24. Contact the hub to express interest in the 2024/25 cohort.
