Manchester A level Teacher Network

Starting the new term

Overview

These meetings will cover some of the overarching themes and curriculum in the new A level. They will be practical and hands-on, with a chance to explore resources and ideas as well as an opportunity to talk about issues that arise from the new curriculum.

Content

This will be a discussion based meeting and a chance to catch up with colleagues and discuss some of the following. Please let us know if there are particular issues you'd like us to include in the discussion.

  • Any changes made to the curriculum and teaching in our Maths departments in response to the ‘new normal’
  • OFQUAL changes to the Summer 2021 public examinations or not
  • Any resources that might be useful for the coming year
  • Topics/needs for future Network meetings

Materials and Equipment

The AMSP uses Big Blue Button (BBB), which is an online conferencing system that allows participants to collaborate in real time.

You are advised to use a headset or headphones with an inline microphone to provide the best sound quality and to prevent audio issues for other users. A laptop with a built-in webcam and microphone may be sufficient if you’re in a quiet area but please take the time to check this before the session. BBB is designed to be used on a variety of platforms but you will get the best experience via a desktop or laptop computer, running either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox as the browser.

Note: Internet Explorer and Edge are not suitable currently.
