Apply now and register your place. Dates and times will be published soon.
What is the cost?
FREE - the project is fully funded
by Central Maths Hub so is free to
participating schools in Birmingham, Dudley and Sandwell.
This project provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to support Covid recovery, to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students, and the development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college. It aims to develop and sustain local communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Maths.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
Who can take part?
The project is aimed at teachers in schools/colleges/departments that want to develop one or more aspects of their A level pedagogy to support Covid recovery. It would be suitable for existing leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers of A level Maths who wish to lead the development of pedagogy in A level teaching with other colleagues in their own or other schools.
Teachers who will find this Work Group particularly useful include those who may have already completed other A level subject knowledge and pedagogy courses (such as Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) or Preparing to Teach A level Mathematics), and who are able to work with other colleagues in their own or other schools.
This Work Groups will have four afternoon sessions of direct meeting time. These sessions are expected to be face-to-face but some may need to be switched to online of necessary. Lead participants will be expected to carry out tasks in their own classrooms in between sessions and, where appropriate, to work with colleagues in their own department. Work Groups will be designed to meet the specific needs of the range of experience of participants.

The Central Maths Hub, coordinated by the NCETM and part of the National Maths Hubs network works in partnership with local schools, colleges, Universities, CPD providers, maths experts and employers to drive improvement in maths education. This is facilitated through funded professional development opportunities and national collaborative projects known as Work Groups, which meet the DfE standards for teacher development.
