Post-16 Professional Development and Resources

Opportunities for developing teachers and maths departments and resources to support all post-16 maths teaching.

To support teachers of post-16 maths, including Core Maths, A level Maths and A level Further Maths, the NCETM and Maths Hubs work in partnership with the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

For 2023/24, there are opportunities in three professional learning areas for teachers of Level 3 maths to participate in a project run over a school term or more by their local Maths Hub.

In each project, teachers get together with colleagues from other schools or colleges several times over an extended period, in sessions led by a teacher or former teacher experienced in professional development and in the relevant area of maths.  Find out more about live events by following the links above. 

If you would be interested in joining one of these Work Groups in 2024/25 please add your details, and which programme you are interested in, to our waiting list (you will then be sent information on how to apply once the recruitment opens). 

The projects above are co-funded by the AMSP and Maths Hubs. Separately, the AMSP run a comprehensive range of programme of activities for teachers and students in state-funded schools and colleges. Full details are on the AMSP website. The AMSP also have more details of the new funding for Core Maths announced in February 2024.

Post-16 GCSE and FSQ Mastery Specialists

Working together with Maths Hubs, the NCETM has designed a new professional development opportunity to support for those who teach maths up to Level 2 to post-16 students, and for the departments where they work: Post-16 GCSE and FSQ Mastery Specialists. Participants undergo an initial training year to develop an understanding of teaching for mastery for post-16 GCSE and FSQ students, then support others to do the same in the second year and beyond.

The first cohort of ‘trailblazers’ began their programme in 2023/24.
