Get set for the 2017 maths A levels

This programme of four one-day courses is designed to help teachers of maths AS/A levels prepare for the new specifications. It provides an introduction to the changes and will focus on AS/A level Mathematics. Although some of the content will be relevant to Further Mathematics, more in-depth professional development on the 2017 AS/A level Further Mathematics will be available through the Further Mathematics Support Programme.

During the autumn and spring terms, all four courses ran successfully in regional locations across the country. In response to demand, we are pleased to offer all courses again in the summer term. There is no dependency between the courses; however, it is recommended that at least one teacher from a school or college attends each of the four courses.
