Leeds & Bradford Network Meeting - Raising Girls' Participation

Raising Girls' Participation

Overview

The Leeds & Bradford teacher networks are AMSP-funded projects allowing teachers of maths to meet, to collaborate and to share professional development. We meet regularly in a variety of formats. 

Aims

  • Encouraging girls' participation in advanced mathematics
  • Use key findings drawn from data
  • Share successful strategies for girls' participation in mathematics

Who will benefit from attending?

KS3/4/5 Maths teachers, KS4/5 Coordinators, Members of the SLT. 

Content

We know that overall girls tend to be under-represented in Level 3 maths (Core Maths, A Level Maths and Further Maths). This session will aim to give you some suggestions to help you encourage girls to consider taking maths beyond GCSE. Although the material is specifically pitched at girls, the ideas would be appropriate for all genders.

Rachel Beddoes, Girls' Participation and Careers Coordinator, from the Advanced Maths Support Programme will introduce some ideas on raising girls' participation. Teachers will then have the opportunity to share experiences and discuss plans.

Materials and Equipment

This meeting will be held on Zoom or BBB, which is an online conferencing system that allows participants to collaborate in real time. An invitation will be sent to you around 20 minutes before we start. Please do not share this link with anyone else.

You are advised to use a headset or headphones with an inline microphone to provide the best sound quality and to prevent audio issues for other users. A laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone may be sufficient if you’re in a quiet area but please take the time to check this before the session.

Discussion will be both via audio and chat boxes. Please join with a microphone if possible. Joining with your camera on would be most welcome but, of course, not compulsory.

As part of our safeguarding procedures please note the following: (i) It is important that you log in with the names you used when you registered for the course otherwise you may not be allowed into the room. If you prefer to use a shortened/alternative name, then do let us/your course tutor know via email in advance of the session. (ii) You must not pass on any of the registration of BBB or Zoom meeting details to anyone else.
