Our acclaimed annual four day summer school is designed for teachers who have studied some mathematics beyond A level standard but have little, or no, experience of teaching A level Mathematics. It is run as a face-to-face residential course in York in conjunction with the National STEM Learning Centre.

During the course you will develop pedagogical knowledge to improve teaching skills, aiming to give you the confidence to teach for understanding and engagement, rather than ‘teaching to the test’. You will experience a range of teaching techniques delivered through 11 sessions: seven featuring topics from pure mathematics, two from mechanics and two from statistics. You will also plan and deliver a team taught twenty minute lesson.

Please note that this course is designed for teachers who are comfortable with the mathematical content of the first year of A level Mathematics. If you want support with the subject knowledge element of A level Mathematics please consider alternative courses such as Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) or Subject Knowledge Live | AS Maths: Pure Absolute Beginners.
