Post-16 Professional Development and Resources

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

Post-16 Professional Development and Resources

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 2024/25, 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. Please note that the links below take you to the AMSP website.

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. These projects are now recruiting, and you can sign up and find out more about live events by following the links above.

To discuss which of these three opportunities is right for your maths department in 2024/25, you can contact your local Maths Hub. The Post-16 Lead there will know more about venues and dates in your area.

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.

Cross Phase – Supporting Students to Achieve a L2 Qualification in Maths

In 2024/25, a project is running for teachers of GCSE Maths, and for those teaching GCSE Maths resit and/or Functional Skills Maths. Participants may be based in secondary schools, UTCs, FE colleges, Sixth Form colleges, schools with post-16 provision, or other post-16 settings. Learn more about this cross-phase project.

Post-16 GCSE and FSQ Mastery Specialists

Working together with Maths Hubs, the NCETM has designed a 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.

Podcasts, features and blog posts

We have published a wide variety of articles designed to answer questions around, and provide support to those teaching, post-16 maths qualifications. If you would like to share your own reflections on teaching maths at post-16, please get in touch.
