Teaching Statistics

Teaching Statistics (TS) is a professional development course for teachers wishing to develop their own subject knowledge and classroom practice. There are two modules, TS1 and TS2. TS1 covers the statistics content in the new A level Mathematics. TS2 covers a selection of the statistics content that is included in the new Further Mathematics A levels.

The teaching statistics courses aim to enable participants:

  • to gain a deep understanding of statistics as a problem-solving discipline
  • to develop statistical modelling skills
  • to develop confidence in working with real data sets using software
  • to improve statistical subject knowledge
  • to build on existing pedagogical skills

TS1

TS1 provides the opportunity for sustained professional development. The course is scheduled over a 5 month period and consists of:

  • two face-to-face study days
  • a series of live, online sessions
  • dedicated web-based teaching and learning resources

TS1 is designed for teachers who are anticipating teaching the statistics content of the new 2017 A Level . You may be:

  • an experienced teacher who wishes to learn more about statistics;
  • someone not currently teaching in a school who wishes to undertake an extensive professional development course to prepare for future employment;
  • seeking to gain a qualification that will give you more options in the future;
  • wanting to develop your own subject knowledge to enable you to confidently and competently teach statistics;
  • a teacher who has completed Teaching Advanced Mathematics (TAM), Teaching Further Mathematics (TFM) or Teaching Mechanics (TM)
