We are already working with several schools who are leading Hubs on our year-long professional development courses.
The London Thames Maths Hub led by the Harris Federation commissioned MEI to design and present a series of events to prepare teachers for the reformed A levels in 2017.
The Central Maths Hub, led by Bishop Challoner Catholic College, Birmingham and the North West 1 Maths Hub led by Altrincham Grammar School for Girls (AGGS) Teaching School Alliance have been hosting MEI’s TGM course. More details.
Recruitment for such extensive courses is always a challenge. The NW1 Maths Hub has taken a proactive approach to recruitment.
The London Central and North West Maths Hub, led by the St. Marylebone CE School, London, has been hosting MEI’s TAM course. More details.
Given the scale of these professional development programmes we would hope to work across several Hubs at a regional level.
MEI’s charitable aims focus on improving mathematics education for all learners and, to this end, MEI is keen to work to support Maths Hubs in practical ways, both nationally and locally.
Here’s a selection of professional development activities chosen to provide you with ideas for ways in which we could work together to provide new opportunities for mathematics teachers in your area.
Curriculum Change Being closely involved with curriculum change in all aspects of 11-19 mathematics at a national level, we will be able to keep you informed about any forthcoming changes and to support the schools in your area to prepare for them.
We are able to offer a special package of rates to Maths Hubs.
Teaching GCSE Mathematics (TGM). This year-long course provides sustained support for teachers new to teaching GCSE Mathematics including non-specialists in mathematics, Newly Qualified Teachers, teachers returning to the classroom and those in Initial Teacher Training. It involves five study days, a series of online sessions, and resources developed especially to support it.
Teaching Advanced Mathematics (TAM). This DfE-funded year-long course supports those teaching A level Mathematics and involves eight study days, regular optional online sessions, and school visits.
To discuss these or any other form of support you would like MEI to provide please email Bernard Murphy, MEI’s Programme Leader for Teacher Support.
