There’s still time to join one of our A level sustained courses

Tuesday 7th July 2020

It's not too late for teachers of maths to join one of our sustained courses. Courses that are currently open for applications are:

  • Teaching Discrete Maths 1 (TD1), which starts in October 2020.
  • Teaching Statistics 1 (TS1), which starts in September 2020.
  • Teaching Mechanics 1 (TM1), which starts in September 2020.

These popular courses are delivered over six months and are designed to inspire and support those teaching, or preparing to teach, an AS/A level Mathematics or Further Mathematics qualification.

Each course focuses on developing subject knowledge and pedagogy through a combination of face-to-face study days and online tutorials and support. There are various courses available to book depending on each individual teacher’s needs.
