Teaching Statistics (TS) is a professional development course for teachers wishing to develop their own subject knowledge and classroom practice. There are two units, TS1 and TS2. TS1 covers the statistics content in A level Mathematics. TS2 covers a selection of the statistics content in A level Further Mathematics.
The course aims to enable participants:
TS provides an opportunity for sustained professional development. TS is a blended course which compromises dedicated web-based teaching and learning resources, scheduled live online sessions and face-to-face study days in Coventry.
Each unit is scheduled over a half-year period. The content of TS1 is a prerequisite for TS2. Typically participants study TS1 followed by TS2; however applicants with sufficient prior knowledge of the TS1 content may elect to study TS2 only.
TS is designed for teachers who are currently teaching A level Mathematics or Further Mathematics, or who wish to teach it at some point in the near future. Suitable applicants include:
TS1 is next scheduled from September 2018 to March 2019; TS1 will also be scheduled from March 2019 to July 2019 (schedule TBC); TS2 will be scheduled from March 2019 to July 2019 (schedule TBC).
The fee for TS1 is £300. The fee for TS2 is £300. Teachers working in state-funded schools or colleges in England are eligible to have their course fees fully reimbursed on completion of their course. Teachers working in AMSP Priority Areas qualify for a £300 subsidy in addition to their course fee reimbursement. Please see the frequently asked questions for more details.
