AS/A level Further Mathematics professional development

The AMSP provides a wide range of professional development for teachers of AS/A level Further Mathematics, offered in flexible formats to suit your needs and availability. These include several sustained courses:

  • Teaching Further Mathematics (TFM) for teachers wishing to develop their subject knowledge and classroom practice for teaching the pure maths content of AS/A level Further Mathematics, including those teaching it for the first time.

  • Teaching Statistics – Unit 2 (TS2) for teachers wishing to develop their subject knowledge and classroom practice for teaching the statistics content of A level Further Mathematics.

  • Teaching Mechanics – Unit 2 (TM2) for teachers wishing to develop their subject knowledge and classroom practice for teaching the mechanics content of A level Further Mathematics.

  • Teaching Discrete Mathematics (TD) for teachers wishing to develop their subject knowledge and classroom practice for teaching the discrete content of A level Further Mathematics.

These courses inspire and support teachers in their development of subject knowledge and pedagogy for A level through a sustained programme of face-to-face study days and online support.

In addition, we offer:

One-day courses

Various one-day courses are organised by our local Area Coordinators. Details of these courses can be found on our events listing.

National one-day Problem-Solving conference

A one-day professional development conference designed to support teachers of AS/A level Mathematics or Further Mathematics.

Live Online Professional Development (LOPD)

This series of courses, which are delivered over several sessions using an online classroom that allows participants to collaborate in real time.

On Demand Professional Development (ODPD)

These courses are available in two formats: Self-paced Study, where you can access any part of the course at any time, and Supported Study, in which you follow a prescribed programme and are supported by a tutor.

Teacher network meetings

Events organised by our local Area Coordinators. The networks focus on sharing good practice, professional development and promoting developments in teaching and learning.

You may also find it useful to take a look at the series of PD videos produced by the legacy Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) to provide ideas for how overarching themes and technology can be incorporated into AS/A level lessons.

Details of all of our professional development courses are available on our events listing. If you have a particular need and you cannot find something suitable there, please contact your local AMSP Area Coordinator who will be able to advise you.
