Welcome to the Excellence Gateway’s Maths exhibition site

This exhibition site brings together a wide range of resources for maths available on the Excellence Gateway including guidance for teaching learning and assessment, leading and managing maths provision and access to the most current CPD packages offered by the Education and Training Foundation (ETF).

The Education and Training Foundation’s maths and English Shaping Success offer includes a variety of different courses to support effective teaching of maths and English for teachers of GCSE, Functional Skills, apprenticeships and study programmes as well as targeted courses and webinars to support personal skills and teaching approaches. The Shaping Success offer provides cutting edge support for all practitioners in the FE sector – with Regional Specialist Leads providing advice and guidance, whilst identifying the best options available for organisations and individuals.

Practitioners are also invited to join the ETF’s Professional Exchange Networks (PENs) to explore regional challenges and reflect on effective practice in the sector.

Other ETF support for maths and English includes:

  • Free online modules and self-evaluation tools to develop your personal maths or English skills at level 2, with some extension to level 3
  • Resources for teaching ESOL learners in mainstream FE classrooms
  • Top Ten Tips provide advice and guidance to improve outcomes
  • Guidelines for assessment and tracking co-created with the sector, setting out clear expectations of effective practice in assessment for learning
  • Subject Leadership CPD to prepare you to be better equipped and more confident to lead provision in your organisations. This includes a residential course, individual modules and support package (online modules with coaching).
  • Our short film ‘Helping you to deliver Excellent maths and English’ (see below).

Providers can also engage with ETF’s dedicated team of specialists to receive a maths and English strategic support visit to identify high-level areas of need. To discuss a strategic visit, please contact the ETF’s Head of Maths and English, Imke Djouadj
