North East Post 16 Teacher Network

February 2022 - Online

Overview

The North East Post 16 Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of A Level Maths, A Level Further Maths and Core Maths maths to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We meet termly and the programme is mainly speaker-led training events and may include informal sessions. It is based in Newcastle.

Content

  • SUMS - An Introduction. SUMS is a free online magazine aimed at A-Level Maths students. Although it is aimed at everyone, it has been designed especially with girls in mind.
  • Assessment and content discussion - the awarding bodies are due to publish further exam guidance in early February. This will be an opportunity to discuss this and its implications.
  • A tour of online resources, with a focus on students who may be behind due to the pandemic. We will be joined by the brilliant Ian Pethick from the Bishop of Winchester Academy. Ian will take us on a tour of a wide range of resources that are available at our fingertips if only we knew where to find them! He has compiled this fantastic padlet that you may wish to have a look at and use in advance of the session: https://padlet.com/ijwpethick/jt32qw3txjworm75
  • AMSP and Maths Hubs update, including an open offer of bespoke in-school Higher Level Problem Solving, careers and general A-Level Maths revision events for students.
