Who can take part?
This programme is for new, developing and experienced teachers of Core Maths from schools and colleges. Where appropriate, participants will be expected to work with colleagues in their own department.
What is involved?
These Work Groups give teachers opportunities, through collaboration and experimentation, to develop improved teaching approaches that support the open-ended problem-solving skills Core Maths students need to develop, and to share these with departmental colleagues. Work Groups may be face-to-face or online and will include school-based activities between workshops.
The project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
