East of England Mathematics Teacher Network

Supporting year 13 students with interviews

Overview

The East of England Mathematics Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project allowing teachers of maths to meet, to collaborate and to share professional development. We meet regularly and the programme is a mixture of interactive discussion and speaker-led training events.

Content

We will be presenting material relating to problem solving in interview situations. Teachers will have the opportunity to see the process from the side of the interviewer and also the interviewee. It is acceptable to attend and observe others but the session will be of greatest benefit if teachers are willing to go through the experience themselves. Teachers who attend will be provided with a number of interview style questions with solutions that they can use in their own support for students who may have interviews. If there are a large number of applicants priority will be given to East of England state funded schools.

Materials and Equipment

This meeting will be held on Zoom. An invitation will be sent to you as a link by email in the week before the event.

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.

Discussion will be both via audio and chat boxes. Please join with a microphone if possible. It would great if teachers are able to join with cameras on but this is, of course, not compulsory.
