Raising Confidence with Technology in the GCSE classroom



This one-day course focuses on developing technology skills for secondary education teachers. It provides strategies and ideas for teachers to use immediately in their classrooms to develop the skills of their students. There will be opportunities to consider how these concepts and resources could be embedded in professional practice and contribute towards the ambition and intent of the department's curriculum.

Feedback from previous courses:

'Great for visual learners!'

'It will improve motivation in topics that some students struggle with.'

'I'll be using this technology to enhance the learning of my students and to make my lessons even more interactive and engaging!'


  • To share ideas and strategies for developing technology within your mathematics curriculum for all of your students.
  • To provide support in developing your professional practice and that of departmental colleagues.
  • To consider how your department can develop your curriculum in line with the 2019 Ofsted Framework.

Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers who wish to improve their teaching of GCSE maths and/or the skills of their students.


Raising Confidence with Technology aims to develop the technology skills of secondary teachers. These skills are transferrable across all aspects of maths teaching, but the content mostly focuses on Higher Tier GCSE topics.

There will be opportunities to share ideas and strategies for working with students and technology. Delegates will be given resources, as well as having the opportunity to create bespoke files to support their students. There is full tutor support throughout the day.

Materials and Equipment
