What is Core Maths?

Core Maths is a relatively new qualification first examined in 2016. Currently there are over 12,000 entries per year and close to 700 state-funded schools and colleges offered the course in 2020-21.

Core Maths is intended for students who have passed GCSE Mathematics at grade 4 or better. It helps to develop students’ quantitative and problem-solving skills, supporting their learning in other subjects and providing valuable preparation for the quantitative skills they will need for further study and employment.

Being a new teacher to Core Maths in a new school I was delighted with the support provided by the AMSP and Maria.  Maria managed that blend of guidance and support really well and shared both resources and her experiences of teaching the course so far.  This was so helpful and informative, and I really took a lot from our meetings.  She also ensured I stayed informed of other opportunities with the AMSP that would be relevant that led me to attend their conference (which I would also highly recommend).  I have been really impressed and grateful for the level of support and engagement made available for this course.

How do I apply for support?

Please complete the form below to request support. All requests are considered on a first come-first served basis.

We will follow the initial request with a short meeting which could be face to face or online; this will allow us to plan the best package of support for your organisation.

Core Maths Specialist Lead support is currently available across academic years 2022-23 and 2023-24, so this would be an ideal time to get in touch if you are considering adding Core Maths to your curriculum offer in September 2023 or to develop staff if you are seeking to deliver this qualification in the future.
