Core Maths professional development

The Teacher Events Calendar below provides details of all of our professional development events, including a range of opportunities designed and delivered according to local need by our local Area Coordinators, such as one-day Core Maths courses. It is followed by details of our standard courses.

Live Online Professional Development

The AMSP's Live Online Professional Development (LOPD) courses form a programme of innovative online courses, designed to enable teachers to develop their teaching with confidence in a convenient, stress-free way.

LOPD courses are delivered using a browser-based online classroom that allows participants to collaborate online in real time. The courses aim both to cover subject content common to all current specifications and to facilitate the exchange of teaching ideas. Rather than attending a one or two day course away from school or college, participants will use the internet to meet weekly online.

This course comprises five online sessions with an experienced tutor, each between 60 and 90 minutes in length and delivered to a small group of teachers allowing opportunities for interaction and discussion.
