GCSE maths resit

This fully funded programme, managed by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), aims to support teachers working with post-16 GCSE maths resit and/or Level 2 functional skills maths learners.

What’s 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’s the cost?

The Cross Phase: Supporting Low Attainers to Achieve a L2 Qualification in Mathematics project is fully funded by the NCETM Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools/colleges.
