Our acclaimed annual four-day summer school is back for 2023.
Do you have teachers who will be teaching A level Mathematics in the new academic year who are comfortable with the subject content but have little, to no, experience teaching it?
Do you have teachers with one to two years of teaching A level Mathematics, who are happy with the content but want to develop their teaching strategies?
Our New to Teaching A level Mathematics Summer School is aimed at deepening a teacher’s pedagogical content knowledge in key areas of the A level curriculum. It will also introduce teachers to a range of strategies for teaching A level mathematics while developing their understanding of how key concepts that underpin A level Mathematics are linked together across the subject.
This residential course includes all accommodation and meals in partnership with the National STEM Learning Centre. This will allow teachers to immerse themselves in learning while surrounded by like-minded teachers. Over the four days, teachers will experience a range of teaching techniques delivered through 12 sessions: eight featuring topics from pure mathematics, two from mechanics and two from statistics. With the opportunity to put what they have learnt together and plan and deliver a team taught twenty-minute lesson.
The course will last for 4 days from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th August.
All sessions were incredibly valuable, and extremely well organised. I now feel much more confident in teaching A level, but will also take away strategies that will have a huge impact on my teaching throughout the school.
The course fee is £600. A bursary is available to cover the full cost, including accommodation, for teachers from state-funded schools and colleges in England.
