*This offer is solely for ‘New to teaching A level mathematics summer school’ and supersedes any previous fees and bursaries stated online or in publications.

A four day summer school, run in conjunction with MEI, for teachers new to teaching A-level mathematics. The course content will raise teachers’ subject pedagogical knowledge in order to improve their teaching skills, thus giving the confidence to teach for understanding and engagement, rather than ‘teaching to the test’.

 

The course is designed for teachers who are:

  • new to teaching, i.e. have no more than three years teaching experience. The course is suitable for teachers who have just completed their initial teacher training programme and are about to take up their first post.

Or

  • more experienced teachers of mathematics who are new to teaching A level

The course concentrates upon pedagogy and it is expected that participants have a good understanding of the mathematical content at advanced level.

This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course. Course fees vary for participants outside the UK. Please contact enquiries@stem.org.uk for more information.

 

 

Outcomes


 

On completion of the course teachers will:

  • have a deeper understanding of the key concepts that underpin A level mathematics, and how these ideas are linked together across the subject
  • have developed a range of active learning approaches to teaching these concepts
  • understand the importance of practical approaches to teaching applied mathematics
