NCP20-21 – Developing A Level Pedagogy

A project to develop national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A Level Mathematics.

The project is aimed at schools/colleges/departments that want to develop one or more aspects of their A level pedagogy including use of technology. It would be suitable for existing leaders of A level teaching or experienced teachers of A level Maths who wish to lead the development of pedagogy in A level teaching with other colleagues in their own or other schools/colleges.

This project provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A level Mathematics to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students. Its aim is to develop and sustain regional communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers. The focus is on developing pedagogy in A level Maths teaching, and developing participants as leaders of A level teaching professional development in their own school or college.

This project involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).
