Developing A Level Pedagogy

 

A Work Group is:

  • comprised of a group of schools who work on something together, normally over the large part of a school year, typically with one or two teachers from each school acting as lead participants
  • led by a teacher or former teacher, expert both in the area of maths education in question and in leading teacher professional development
  • normally part of a national collaborative project, which supports the Work Group Leads and seeks to ensure lessons are learned from around the country.

Schools in every Work Group:

  • work towards outcomes linked to teachers’ professional learning, their practice development, the learning of the pupils they teach, and new approaches and policies in maths teaching across their school or department
  • maintain a focus on the classroom, often planning, observing and refining lessons together
  • evaluate the outcomes of the Work Group’s activity, with collated findings being fed into the national picture and used to inform future work.
