Supporting Post-16 GCSE Resit Work Group

Identify and meet the needs of students resitting GCSE Maths

What is involved?

This Work Group will explore effective ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students, and successful ways of working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE in the context of Covid recovery.

Participants will collaborate and experiment, deepening their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum demands of, and pedagogical approaches to, GCSE Maths. Participants’ departments will also benefit through shared good practice, making more confident use of approaches such as bar modelling, multiplicative reasoning, realistic contextualisation or teaching for mastery.


What are the benefits?

  • Your students will be better placed to make progress and achieve at least grade 4 in GSCE Maths. 
  • You will effectively teach key concepts and processes relevant to teaching the GCSE as a resit
  • You will develop an awareness of the importance of questioning and then adapting teaching to take account of students' responses.
  • You will share practice and resources, and/or lead professional development on post-16 GCSE resit pedagogy with your department. 


Who can apply?

This project is for teachers of post-16 GCSE Maths resit and/or any head of department where post-16 GCSE Maths resit is taught. Participants may be based in FE colleges, sixth form colleges, schools with post-16 provision or other post-16 settings.

The Work Group is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
