Mathematics Entry Pathways
The Entry Pathways qualification in Mathematics has been re-written into units. Centres will be able to choose from this list to create a flexible course of their own. Each unit will have its own learning outcomes, assessment objectives, content guidance, resources, advice and assessment suggestions.
The new suite of qualifications is centre assessed and externally moderated.
There is a choice of an 8 credit Award or a 13 credit Certificate at each Entry 2 and Entry 3.
Candidates can study Entry 1 units and achieve an Award and Certificate at Entry 1 in Personal Progress. Further details can be found on the Personal Progress web pages.
Tracking grids were used by the external moderators team in summer 2013 and it was decided to make these available to centres. These can be useful when tracking candidates’ progress as evidence is collated and when internally moderating work. These are NOT meant to replace the Assessment Records and there is no need to submit them to WJEC.
The Department for Education has recently revised the criteria which must be met for qualifications to attract performance points. Unfortunately, for the 2014 performance measure, all Entry Level qualifications and those at Level 1 which have no direct links to a Level 2 qualification will not be included in these tables after 2013.
Most specifications are co-teachable with their GCSE equivalents and fit into the National Qualifications Framework.
Details of online provision will be issued in due course.
The Autumn 2012 CPD material is now available for teachers to access on the CPD section of the Secure Website.
