Welcome back to the start of the new academic year and to the September update! In this update you can find news, information and training availability for teachers delivering GCSE, A level, International GCSE and IAL Pearson Maths qualifications.
As we embark on the new academic year, I have put together some support pages to help you find available resources and guides.
Since early 2020, as part of the National Tutoring Programme, Pearson Tutoring has successfully provided tuition for English, Maths and Science across Key Stages 2,3 and 4 for over 13,000 students.
We are now looking to expand our offer to include Pearson Functional Skills qualifications (Level 2) in Mathematics, and wanted to know whether this would be of interest to you/your school? We have therefore put together a brief survey that we would be grateful if you could complete for us to help us with our planning for 2022/23.
