At Get Further, we also offer support directly to college and sixth form teachers through our research-based GCSE maths resit curriculum for further education. This curriculum has been designed specifically by expert teachers for students who are continuing to study GCSE maths in further education or sixth form, with a focus on ensuring a strong foundation in fundamental maths skills that will continue to support them in the future and beyond life at college.
The curriculum package includes:
- A scheme of work, tailored to the college’s timetable and cohort needs;
- All lesson materials (full slides, worksheets and assessments) and;
- An accompanying teacher professional development programme, with recommended strategies to support teachers to deliver the curriculum to maximum effect.
For colleges who use the curriculum, there is a demonstrable improvement in progress and attainment. During the curriculum pilot, 80% of young people improved their scores after three months of teaching – and assessment results were significantly higher for the cohort than the previous year.
