Professional Development opportunities

This series of postcards outlines the professional development opportunities available.
Support your students with higher-level problem solving and university admissions tests
Several prestigious universities ask students to take an admissions test as a requirement of their offer, and increasingly universities are making reduced offers based on a strong performance in these examinations. It's therefore important that students have the opportunity to prepare for the admission tests required or encouraged by universities they have applied to.
This leaflet explains the AMSP support available to these students, as well as the professional development we offer to develop teacher's understanding of how to provide support.
Discover AS/A level Further Mathematics and Core Maths
These fact sheets provide you with the key information about the AS/A level Further Mathematics and Core Maths qualifications. Discover what they are, who they're for, why your students should be given the opportunity to study them and what support you can find to establish and deliver them within your offering.
Advanced Maths Options
By offering a wide range of qualifications, you’ll enable your students to choose a maths pathway that’s right for them. The AMSP believes that there’s an advanced maths option suitable for every student who achieves at least a standard pass (grade 4) at GCSE Mathematics.
This leaflet explains the advanced maths options available and explores the reasons why you should consider including them within your offering.
