Core Maths Teaching Workshop



An engaging event focused on supporting teachers with the delivery of the increasingly popular Core Maths qualifications as well as contextualised problem solving in other maths courses or courses with mathematical content. This day has been designed to complement our other Core Maths professional development opportunities; all sessions are unique to the day.


  • To provide teachers with an opportunuity to explore resources and teaching approaches useful for contextualised problem solving.
  • To network with new and experienced teachers of Core Maths and, possibly, other subjects.
  • To consider how best to structure and deliver the course in your school for your students.

Who will benefit from attending?

This course is suitable for anyone who is already teaching Core Maths this academic year, for teachers who are interested in finding out more prior to teaching Core Maths or teachers of other Level 3 courses which have mathematical requirements.


State-funded schools, colleges and academies can apply to this course for free.

Schools and colleges located within Priority Areas are eligible to receive a subsidy of £250 to support staff cover and travel costs. For more information, visit our subsidies page.

Study Schedule

Core Maths has been described as the most significant development in post-16 maths education in a generation. With the number of centres offering Core Maths increasing year on year it is important that our year 11 students know that the course exists, where they can go to study it, what its intentions are and how it will go on to help them in their A levels, Higher Education courses and/or life beyond formal education. This event aims to inform teachers of mathematics in all schools and colleges (including 11-16 schools) of the ethos of the Core Maths course, why it is important that their students know about it when making their choices for post-16 study and will give real practical examples of Core Maths style problems that could be used in their teaching of GCSE mathematics.
