Who is the course designed for?

This course is for teachers in state-funded schools and colleges in England. All participating teachers must be teaching A-level Mathematics (or other level 3 mathematics courses) throughout the academic year 2014-15.


Participants are required to take an active role in eight study days, spread across the year, focusing on A-level Mathematics pedagogy. All sessions, although having a content theme, will include pedagogy and researching practice and will feature the following:

- subject knowledge sessions where the focus is on deepening participants’ understanding of mathematics;
- example lessons where the focus is on pedagogy;
- facilitated reflections on these sessions, relating them where appropriate to course reading;
- researching practice.

Course tutors carry out two school/college visits to each participant to observe and support his/her A-level teaching. In addition, participants study the content of five A-level modules, from a teaching and learning perspective, with support using an online classroom.

Participants have access to an extensive website of teaching and learning materials and this access continues for two years after course completion (provided by MEI).
