Join a sustained professional development course for the 2019/20 academic year

Friday 26th April 2019

Applications are now open for a new round of sustained professional development courses. These courses support teaching for the 2019/20 academic year.

Our courses offer high-quality and comprehensive study over a sustained period of time (between six months and a year). They aim to develop teachers' subject knowledge and pedagogy for A level through a programme of face-to-face study days and online support.

Through government funding, the AMSP is able to offer full reimbursement of course fees to state-funded schools and colleges, with additional subsidies available to teachers in Priority Areas. To find out more, visit our subsidies page.

The following six month courses are now open for applications:

  • Teaching Further Mathematics 1 (TFM1) will help you develop a deep understanding of Further Mathematics, and develop your confidence in the classroom. The course runs from July 2019 to January 2020. Study days are available in London, Manchester or Coventry.
  • Teaching Mechanics 1  (TM1) will help you develop a deep understanding of mechanics principles, and suggest ways of incorporating practical work in your teaching. The course runs from September 2019 to February 2020. Study days are available in London or Manchester.
  • Teaching Statistics 1 (TS1) will give you an improved understanding of statistics as a problem-solving discipline, and develop your confidence in working with real data using technology. The course runs from September 2019 to February 2020. Study days are available in London or Manchester.
  • Teaching Discrete Mathematics 1 (TD1) will develop your teaching of discrete/decision maths content and enhance your classroom confidence. The course runs from September 2019 to February 2020. Study days will take place in Coventry.

After studying the first units of our sustained professional development, participants have the opportunity to join a second course to further their study. These will run in early 2020 and applications will open later this year in autumn term.

In addition, applications for our year-long Teaching A level Mathematics (TAM) course are still open. You may find this course useful if you're starting to teach AS and A level Mathematics, and there are generous subsidies for state-funded schools and colleges to facilitate your participation in the course. If you're weighing up the best option for you, a comparison of these courses is available.
