Colleges are struggling to secure GCSE English and Maths grade C, but is this any surprise when students have likely struggled for 11 years at school and are now required to pass in just 36 weeks?

This is an enormous challenge, going beyond the English and Maths classroom, requiring a whole college approach to behaviour, attendance and a culture of these key skills being everybody’s priority.

This workshop is specifically designed for FE leaders and managers responsible for cross-college English and Maths provision and explores ways of maximising the potential of disaffected students who are re-sitting GCSE English and Maths, or studying Functional Skills in English and Maths, achieving a grade C or 5.

Workshop aims

This workshop will provide a range of practical leadership strategies for improving the provision of English and Maths in FE colleges and sixth form colleges.

Objectives

This workshop will enable delegates to:

  • Lead an English team so that staff work in a collaborative way so that quality is not simply assured but is improved
  • Lead on learner attendance and behaviour, ensuring learners display a ‘behaviour for learning’ and ‘growth mindset’ attitude
  • Lead on staffing, including recruitment and retention, and CPD and performance management
  • Lead on timetabling, ensuring English and maths is timetabled in such a way as to maximise the potential of learners attending

Benefits of attending

This workshop will benefit delegates by helping them to:

  • understand the GCSE reforms including the new 9-1 grading scale
  • acquire practical strategies for leading English and maths provision in a college

Who should attend?

This workshop is ideal for FE college/sixth form college subject leaders and managers of English and/or maths; and for senior leaders responsible for curriculum and quality.
