Live Online Professional Development

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 covers topics which are common to the Core Maths specifications for AQA, Edexcel, MEI and OCR. Further topics to complete the content for each specification will be available soon via the On Demand Professional Development (ODPD) programme.

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

Work Groups

Level 3 Maths Work Groups are extended professional development programmes, run in partnership by Maths Hubs and the AMSP. Each Work Group is an ongoing collaboration between teachers from local schools and colleges, led by an expert in maths professional development.

Supporting Core Maths Work Groups supports departments by helping aspiring, new or experienced Core Maths teachers develop their confidence in teaching Core Maths. Participants will gain understanding of the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to teaching maths through contextualised problem-solving. They will appreciate the different Core Maths qualifications available and be able to choose the one appropriate for their students.
