We are pleased to confirm that Level 3 Certificate in Quantitative Reasoning (MEI) and Level 3 Certificate in Quantitative Problem Solving (MEI) qualifications are accredited for teaching from 2015, and pending DfE approval as Core Maths qualifications.
OCR and Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) have jointly developed two new qualifications designed to meet the Core Maths requirements: Level 3 Certificate in Quantitative Reasoning (MEI) and Level 3 Certificate in Quantitative Problem Solving (MEI); each of them incorporates the content of the Introduction to Quantitative Methods and develops it further to make a qualification intended for students who have at least grade C in GCSE Mathematics and who would benefit from continuing with some mathematics but who do not need or want to do AS or A level Mathematics. These qualifications will be particularly useful for students studying subjects such as geography, business, chemistry, biology and sociology.
OCR Core Maths Promotional Event
To help you understand the two proposed Core Maths qualifications, OCR invites you to a launch event at which speakers from OCR and MEI will introduce these qualifications, explain the different approaches to problem solving and statistics that they offer, outline the support available and their future plans. This event will take place on Wednesday 3 December in London, with 60 places available to teachers.
This course is free and includes a set of essential course materials. Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided at the course.
