Details of the dates and venues of these event are given below. We advise all Heads of Department or Key Stage 5 Coordinator to attend one of these courses.
Your FMSP Area Coordinator organises local A level subject knowledge courses for Mathematics and Further Mathematics content. These will continue to ensure that teachers are prepared for teaching the content in the new A levels.
Details of CPD events and Teacher Network meetings focusing on the new A levels are given in the table below. Details of all events taking place in your area can be found on the relevant regional page together with the contact details of your local FMSP Area Coordinator.
If you are unable to attend a course in your region, the innovative Live Online Professional Development programme offers courses to address the subject knowledge needs of your department.
The FMSP offers a range of extended professional development courses which are designed to develop subject knowledge and classroom practice.
MEI is planning a programme of CPD courses. Each course is appropriate for teaching any of the new AS/A level Mathematics specifications.
At the end of June 2018, the MEI Conference has a particular focus on the new A levels. In addition to sessions on various aspects of the changes, there will be plenty of opportunities to talk through any concerns with fellow teachers, FMSP and MEI staff.
