How we work

The FMSP has 30 Area Coordinators, covering the whole of England, who work with schools and colleges to support and promote the study of AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics and to arrange Further Mathematics tuition for students when their schools and colleges cannot provide it themselves. The FMSP provides training and support to teachers of AS/A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics.

This brochure provides more information about how the FMSP works and the support it offers.
