Maths Hub Work Group: Developing A level Pedagogy

Wiltshire, Swindon, Reading and West Berkshire | Mobius Maths Hub

Overview

Maths Hub Work Groups are recruiting now for 2020/2021. For further information please contact your local Maths Hub.

Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges led by an expert in maths professional development.

Developing A level Pedagogy Work Groups provide 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. These Work Groups aim to develop and sustain regional communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy in their teaching of A level Mathematics. There is also a focus on the development of participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college.

As a precaution, and to ensure the safety of all participants, this course has been adapted for entirely online delivery. However, we do value the opportunities and networking experiences that result from face-to-face study days. As such, we’re keeping our approach under review. If it becomes appropriate and feasible to hold face-to-face study days during the course, we will discuss this with you.

Aims

  • know the content and requirements of the linear A level Mathematics
  • understand the purpose of the over-arching themes and their impact on teaching and learning in A Level Mathematics, including use of technology
  • be confident to teach aspects of the content (particularly mechanics and statistics)
  • support colleagues in their own school/college in embedding themes from the Work Group in their delivery of the linear A Level
  • become a part of a developing community of practice

Who will benefit from attending?

It is suitable for existing leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers of A level Mathematics who wish to lead the development of pedagogy in A level teaching with other colleagues in their own or other schools.

Teachers will find this Work Group particularly useful if they have previously completed AS/A level Mathematics professional development, and want to influence their department's approach to teaching A level in the future.

Other Information

Schools/colleges must be able to commit to the full academic year’s programme. This involves a total of three days of face-to-face (or equivalent) support across the academic year, as well as classroom and school-based activity. Participants must also be supported by their school/college leadership to explore outcomes from the project with other colleagues in their department.

Cost

State-funded schools, colleges and academies can participate in Work Groups for free.
