Are you teaching KS4 maths?

Peer tutoring is highlighted by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) as an intervention producing positive impacts on both tutors and tutees attainment, with an estimated effect of five additional months progress.

This free course is designed to provide you with all the resources you require to implement a six week peer tutoring programme in your school.  The peer tutoring lessons follow a structured approach to scaffold the interactions between tutors and their peers. 

The number foundation programme covers the concepts of powers & roots,  BIDMAS, multiplication & division, prime numbers and HCF & LCM. The final lesson provides the opportunity to consolidate learning. The course will show you how to set up a small scale trial in your school, whereby we create a comparator group which receives the intervention after the intervention group.

At the end of the intervention, you are able to submit an anonymised data file so that our stats team can run an analysis for the impact in your school. We then use an innovative approach to aggregating the data to create a cumulative meta-analysis, which lets us know how the intervention is working nationally and internationally. 

The course is ideal as evidence for your CPD, whilst also providing a cost effective intervention for your catch-up programmes.
