There are five types of training events that we offer:

1. Feedback on examinations

After every summer series, we provide pre-recorded training on the performance. You can access all the pre-recorded training available for GCSE (9-1) Mathematics.

After every summer series, we also run a live online session with a subject expert discussing the feedback on the examinations. This is usually held in the autumn term.

2. Collaborative Network Events

Our free local teaching networks help support, train and share best practice with maths teachers and heads of department across the country. We work with schools and colleges whose innovative maths teaching practices have shown a direct benefit to their students.

These schools and colleges become recognised as ‘hub’ centres and lead a collaborative network in their region each term.

Find your local hub centre and book a free network event

3. Teaching and Learning online events

Throughout the year we will run a host of live online sessions focused on the teaching and learning of GCSE Mathematics, hosted by one of our Subject Specialists.

We also have a national training programme, that includes our local collaborative network events. You can visit our training page and book onto an event of your choice.

4. Heads of Mathematics Conferences

Our Heads of Mathematics Conferences run across the country in January and February each year. At the events, you get to meet the Pearson Edexcel Mathematics team and attend sessions with a focus on 11–19 Mathematics support, including exam feedback. There are choices of workshops to attend and plenty of chances to network with other Heads of Maths so you can gain insights, tips and advice to take back to your own department and use for CPD.

Full-day sessions are £50 + VAT; half-day sessions are £30 + VAT.

5. Mocks marking training events

In the autumn term of 2016 we ran mocks marking training events to help you apply the new mark schemes, so you can be confident you're getting a clear picture of your students' achievements. If you were unable to get to one of these events, you can view the videos from the Foundation and Higher tier events and download the training document below:
