ASDAN Accelerating Progress: Maths

This course is designed to boost progress in GCSE Maths courses

About the course

This course is designed to support learners in year 9, 10 and 11 through GCSE Maths courses as well as those retaking Maths GCSE with learning in a small group of no more than 6 learners.

The aim is to boost grades by developing the essential maths skills required and by giving opportunities to apply maths to real life situations. There is a special focus on gaining the skills and knowledge to reach at least the 4/5 grade level at GCSE Maths.

To succeed with GCSE Maths learners increasingly need to apply the maths skills that they have learned to problems. This course is a great way to practice and develop these skills with real life problems and situations so that learners can learn to apply their skills appropriately and gain confidence.

The course is a great way for learners to see the value of maths in their daily lives and will help improve basic problem solving skills. This will also help the ability of learners to access GCSE Maths examination papers and improve overall performance.

The course provides accreditation for learning for each 10 hours of accredited work with up to 10 credits available for 100 hours of accredited work. The rate at which learners progress through the accredited hours will vary and the course blocks all include teaching and revision of key topics needed for the work in that module to help learners achieve the best outcomes and develop their knowledge and skills. This course runs in holidays and term time on Saturday mornings.

These credits can be used towards other ASDAN qualifications. Find out more here.

Learning is in a small group with a maximum of 6 learners with our highly experienced maths teacher Ruth Yentis. Ruth has an inclusive and engaging teaching style and a strong desire to see all learners achieve their best.
