This project provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics, 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).
Lead participants will be expected, where appropriate, to work with colleagues in their own department.
The project is aimed at teachers in schools/colleges/departments that want to develop one or more aspects of their A level pedagogy. 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.
