Core Maths Specification Network Edexcel


Pre-Release Discussion Session

This is your opportunity to discuss and share ideas that come out of this year's pre-release material.  This network is tailored for teachers who are delivering the same specification as you so all discussion and sharing of resources and ideas will support you in helping your students best prepare for this aspect of your chosen specifications' assessments.

Your network will be led by AMSP Core Maths champions with experience of teaching the specification your network is focussing on.

You will be emailed the Zoom link each time the network runs. Each network will meet five times in the year (one instance will coincide with the publication of the pre-release source materials for your specification) and whilst we would encourage you to attend as many of these as possible, we understand that this may not be feasible on all occasions.

Who will benefit from attending?

These networks are designed for anyone already teaching Core Maths, regardless of your experience. The networks will be led by participants as well as AMSP facilitators, and we encourage you to attend if you like to share, discuss and collaborate.   We expect these pre-release meetings to be popular, therefore we will be increasing the capacity to cater for larger audiences.


There will be separate groups for most Core Maths syllabuses so that you have the opportunity to collaborate with teachers who are teaching the same content. 

The following groups are available and can be booked by clicking on the thumbnails at the bottom of this page. Please note thumbnails appear in chronological order.

AQA 2A: Statistical Techniques  - there are two networks for AQA 2A (at different times - see thumbnails below)

AQA 2B: Critical Path and Risk Analysis 

AQA 2C: Graphical Techniques 

OCR A and B: This operates as one network initially.

Edexcel: Mathematics in Context

You are welcome to join more than one group.

Sessions will last for 90 minutes.

Materials and Equipment

We aim to emulate as much of the ‘face-to-face’ experience as possible and hope that these groups will form supportive communities. Participants should expect to be proactive in communicating during sessions, so the use of microphones is mandatory. Additionally, we also strongly encourage you to attend with a web-cam.

Other Information

Core Maths Specification Networks will be limited in size and places will be issued on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.

Teachers will be emailed prior to the session and again on the day of the session with a link to the online meeting room. 

If the network meeting you're interested in is showing as ‘fully booked’, please complete the Register of Interest Form


The sessions are free of charge to all teachers from state-funded schools and colleges.
