I am an experienced functional skills and GCSE maths teacher. I teach mainly adults. I also teach apprentices so I have a wide variety of resources from whole class teaching to my workbooks which were originally developed for work with apprentice who come to my classes on a roll on roll off basis - lessons with apprentices are very exam focused trying to prepare them for exams as quickly as possibly. I enjoy a problem solving approach and like to develop resource suitable for adults.

Perfect for someone just starting out or more experienced teachers looking for new ideas.

Here I have taken some of the older City and Guilds exam practice papers and made them into topic specific booklets for functional skills revision. There are the number task, the measure tasks and the handling data tasks. I use these throughout the year as a progress check and as a formative assessment.
Also great for functional skills revision. Mark scheme included. Our maths teams have found these to be really useful hopefully you will to.
