Free event - Pearson Edexcel GCSE Maths for Post-16 Boost Resources

Join Nicola Woodford-Smith on 5 May 2022 for an overview to all the new resources that have been designed to help support students studying GCSE maths in a post-16 setting.

Many of these types of learners find it difficult to engage with the content and so the Pearson maths team have researched key topics and added contextual elements to lesson plans along with producing themed papers to help with course engagement to ensure learners have a positive learning experience.

We will also share the ideas and style of the new online diagnostic assessment to help flag areas of learning for your students which will be available from September.
