Keele Teacher Network

Readiness for A-level. Helping year 11 students to hit the ground running.


The Keele Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of GCSE & A level Mathematics to meet, collaborate and to share best practice, and hear from expert presenters. We meet approximately termly and the programme is mainly speaker-led training events and may include informal sessions.


The current situation in schools may mean that year 11 students who want to go on to study A-level Maths need some extra support to help prepare them to be successful on the A-level course.

This Network session aims to bring teachers together to discuss their plans and strategies and to offer a few ideas and suggestions, based on Jo Sibley's #6 Concepts project.

What do you see are the issues?

What are your plans for the current year 11s?

What 6 concepts would you want every student in your new A level group to have mastered before starting the course?

As this will be an interactive session we recommend that to get the most from the discussion you will need a microphone available and a webcam would enable even better communication.

The meeting will give the opportunity for people to share experiences, ideas and successes, and to seek advice from colleagues.
