Tuition

Tuition available through the FMSP Wales

Further Mathematics is an A-level course valuable to all students planning to study Maths related degrees including Science, Engineering, Technology and Computer Science. It can be taken as a full A-level course over two years alongside the standard A-level Mathematics or studied as an AS subject alongside A2 Mathematics in Year 13. Students must take (and pass) 3 modules to receive an AS qualification and another 3 modules to receive a full A-level qualification. As one of the qualifications approved by the Welsh Minister for Children, Education and Lifelong Learning, Further Mathematics can form part of a Learning Programme and would therefore be eligible for funding at Post 16. This includes both schools and colleges offering Further Mathematics “in house” or through the Further Maths Support Programme Wales. Information about approved qualifications is available from the database of Approved Qualifications in Wales (DAQW)

The FMSP Wales supports state-funded schools and colleges in all counties/regions of Wales by providing tuition for students who would benefit from studying AS/A level Further Mathematics. When schools/colleges have difficulties staffing/timetabling Further Mathematics, or have students wishing to study applied modules which are not part of the main provision offered by the school/college, the FMSP Wales can provide all or part of the tuition for Further Mathematics. Schools and colleges are welcome to enquire about arranging online or face-to-face tuition in their region. A Welsh speaking tutor is available.

FMSP Wales Tuition cost and funding

A tuition fee of £202 per module per student applies to students receiving tuition for Further Mathematics through the Further Maths Support Programme Wales. Tuition fees should be paid by the learner’s host institution or the relevant Local Authority and not the student. Further Maths can attract funding in exactly the same way as AS/A2 qualifications offered “in house”. Students must take (and pass) 3 modules to receive and AS qualification and another 3 modules to receive a full A-Level qualification. The FMSP Wales cost is therefore £606 per learner for both AS and A2 qualifications. You can enrol students to study with the FMSP Wales for one or more modules depending on whether you can provide some of the modules “in house”.

    Student Feedback and Case Studies

    - Feedback from students and schools has been very positive with some students achieving 100% in Further Maths modules. Joseph McCambridge, one of the students who studied a Further Mathematics module online commented: “I really enjoyed the course as I find Maths a very interesting subject and was very glad that I was able to learn more complicated Mathematics from this course. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is thinking of taking maths on at University.”

    “As a school we are very grateful to the FMSP Wales for the work they have been doing with our students in enabling them to study maths at a further level. The teaching, support and revision work have been very useful and proved successful with an A grade in FP1'', Head of Mathematics, Gowerton Comprehensive.

    Hyfforddiant

    Hyfforddiant sydd ar gael drwy FMSP Cymru

    Mae Mathemateg Bellach yn gwrs lefel A gwerthfawr i bob myfyriwr sy’n bwriadu astudio graddau sy’n gysylltiedig â Mathemateg gan gynnwys Gwyddoniaeth, Peirianneg, Technoleg a Gwyddoniaeth Gyfrifiadurol. Gellir ei gymryd fel cwrs lefel-A llawn dros ddwy flynedd ochr yn ochr â'r Mathemateg Safon Uwch safonol neu ei astudio fel pwnc UG ochr yn ochr â Mathemateg A2 ym Mlwyddyn 13 . Rhaid i fyfyrwyr gymryd (a phasio) 3 modiwl i dderbyn cymhwyster UG a 3 modiwl arall i dderbyn cymhwyster Safon Uwch llawn. Fel un o'r cymwysterau a gymeradwywyd gan y Gweinidog dros Blant, Addysg a Dysgu Gydol Oes, gall Mathemateg Bellach fod yn rhan o Raglen Dysgu ac felly byddai'n gymwys i gael arian ôl-16. Mae hyn yn cynnwys ysgolion a cholegau sy’n cynnig Mathemateg Bellach yn "fewnol "neu drwy Raglen Gymorth Mathemateg Bellach Cymru. Mae gwybodaeth am gymwysterau cymeradwy ar gael o gronfa ddata Cymwysterau Cymeradwy Cymru (DAQW).

Pan fydd ysgolion/colegau yn cael anawsterau staffio/amserlennu Mathemateg Bellach, neu fod ganddynt fyfyrwyr sy'n dymuno astudio modiwlau cymhwyso nad ydynt yn rhan o'r brif ddarpariaeth a gynigir gan yr ysgol/coleg, gall FMSP Cymru ddarparu’r cyfan neu ran o'r hyfforddiant ar gyfer Mathemateg Bellach. Mae croeso i ysgolion a cholegau holi am drefnu hyfforddiant ar-lein neu wyneb-yn-wyneb yn eu rhanbarth. Mae tiwtor sy'n siarad Cymraeg ar gael.

    Costau Hyfforddiant a chyllid FMSP Cymru

    Codir ffi hyfforddi o £202 y modiwl ar gyfer pob myfyriwr sy'n derbyn hyfforddiant Mathemateg Bellach drwy Raglen Gymorth Mathemateg Bellach Cymru. Dylai’r ffioedd hyfforddiant gael eu talu gan y sefydliad sy’n cynnal y dysgwr neu'r Awdurdod Lleol perthnasol ac nid y myfyriwr. Gall Mathemateg Pellach ddenu arian yn union yr un ffordd â chymwysterau UG/A2 a gynigir yn "fewnol". Rhaid i fyfyrwyr gymryd (a phasio) 3 modiwl i dderbyn cymhwyster UG a 3 modiwl arall i dderbyn cymhwyster Safon Uwch llawn. Felly, cost FMSP Cymru yw £606 fesul dysgwr ar gyfer cymwysterau UG ac A2. Gallwch gofrestru myfyrwyr i astudio gyda FMSP Cymru ar gyfer un neu fwy o fodiwlau yn dibynnu ar p'un a allwch ddarparu rhai o'r modiwlau yn "fewnol".
