Greater Manchester 11-16 Teacher Network

Maths4Girls - linking careers and the maths curriculum


This teacher network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of 11-16 maths to meet, collaborate and share best practice.

We meet once or twice a term and the programme is mainly delegate-led. Teachers will be able to share ideas, resources, strategies and plans, as well as being updated on the AMSP support currently available.


This session will be led by Alison Rowan McEwan, Engagement Manager, Founders4Schools/Maths4Girls

In this session we will discuss how you - and your school - can meet Gatsby benchmarks 4 and 5 (Linking curriculum learning to careers and Encounters with employers).

Maths can change the world, and we know that young people care about this. How can we engage pupils, support them to discover the application of maths in the real world, bring the curriculum to life, and inspire them to pursue maths and maths based subjects post-16 and beyond?  

Maths4Girls allows educators to invite female (and male) role models who use maths every day in their job, into the classroom.  Hear how Maths4Girls can inspire and encourage students to take maths beyond GCSE, whilst combating gender stereotypes and increasing awareness of the fantastic range of careers that maths can lead to.

You will also meet some Maths4Girls role models and hear their inspiring career stories for you to take back into the classroom.
