The NCETM and the Further Mathematics Support Programme (FMSP) have announced an additional cohort during the school year 2016-2017, for the Advanced Mathematics Professional Development Lead Development and Accreditation Programme. The programme supports teachers and others who design and lead advanced mathematics professional development opportunities for groups.
The additional course (on 2 December 2016 and 20 March 2017, with a gap task in between) will run at The City of London Academy, and is open to teachers from all parts of London and adjoining regions.
The programme provides the opportunity to:
- debate and explore priority areas in advanced mathematics learning and teaching;
- debate and explore what makes good mathematics-specific CPD;
- share good practice in mathematics CPD with fellow colleagues and become part of a professional community of mathematics PD leads (an online community will be set up to facilitate networking);
- plan, undertake and evaluate professional development work with a group of teachers as part of an interim task.
It will also support those implementing the new advanced mathematics qualifications in schools and colleges from September 2017, incorporating any changes into the programme that might result from future developments.

Applications must be received by 18 November.
