Who is this course for?
This course is for teachers and trainers who:
- teach GCSE maths
- teach functional maths
- support learners' maths skills in vocational contexts.
If your organization would like to host a course for your own staff, either in house or with places offered to external candidates, please register your interest here.
The course first introduces the key ideas of mathematical resilience and the 'growth zone' model and how teachers can develop strategies to overcome barriers to maths learning. It then deepens and extends these ideas with a focus on developing coaching skills as a tool to transform learners' attitudes and approaches to maths, helping them to develop growth mindsets and mathematical resilience - with a wider impact on learning.
You will be able to:
- develop understanding of the barriers and anxieties faced by many maths learners
- explore four key factors in mathematical resilience and their implications for classroom practice:
- growth mindsets
- personal value and agency
- how to work at maths
- appropriate scaffolding and support
- use activities which make maths ALIVE: (Accessible, linked, inclusive, valuable, engaging)
- raise your own self awareness and recognize your impact on learners' attitudes and behaviour
- develop coaching techniques, including listening, questioning, reflecting and summarizing
- use these techniques to engage and support maths learners, enabling them to develop personal agency and a willingness to undertake challenging mathematical tasks.
Length of the course
Four full days. Pre-course reading will be provided, with access to further materials on line afterwards.
