Seddon lesson plans

Get this resource

This resource has been produced by the team in the Stoke area with a local Cornerstone employer, Seddon Construction, who are also an Enterprise Adviser. Seddon worked with their matched school, Haywood Academy, to develop these lessons and support the implementation of careers into the curriculum in Maths in year 11. The lessons were developed around topics that were identified as challenging for students to understand: 

  • There are 4 lessons included, covering percentages, area, volume and scales.
  • The role of a Quantity Surveyor was used as the means to impart the knowledge.
  • Haywood used the lessons before mock exams and saw an improvement in the scores afterwards, which they attributed partly to these lessons.
Top tips
  • Try to establish a link with a similar employer to support the delivery in the classroom and answer any questions.
  • Plan as part of the progressive programme in year 11 to raise awareness of careers and link curriculum to the world of work.
  • Where possible, replicate in other curriculum subject areas and across different year groups.
