GCSE Webinars

These webinars which took place in the summer of 2015 to support the delivery of the ETF GCSE Pipeline Programme. Each webinar consisted of a presentation followed by a question and answer session, and lasted around 45 minutes.

1. Writing a scheme of work for GCSE resit students

GCSE maths resit students have experienced repeated failure and arrive with many negative attitudes towards maths and their own ability to succeed. The success of a GCSE resit class depends on a good scheme of work. Students respond well to classes which are engaging, challenging and fun but which also explicitly prepare them for the exam. This webinar described the key features and structure of a SoW based on this approach and identified some good sources for course materials.

2. Achievements and attitudes in GCSE Mathematics GCSE classes

This webinar focused on a current Manchester Metropolitan University project which is evaluating how interventions based on 'Realistic Mathematics Education' (RME) can affect GCSE resit students' attitudes, exam success, and longer term understanding. The MMU team are developing and trialling interventions in various post-16 settings, including a class taught by a non-specialist teacher.
