There are five types of training events that we offer:

1. Heads of Mathematics Conferences 2020

We’re hosting a series of Heads of Mathematics conferences across the country in January and February 2020. 

These events will focus on teaching and learning strategies for 11-19 Mathematics, including exam feedback, and will give you the opportunity to meet the Pearson Maths team and network with other teachers.

The morning will focus on GCSE mathematics, while the afternoon will focus on A level mathematics.

The morning section will include:

  • a brief update on our mathematics qualifications;
  • feedback on student performance for the summer 2019 papers for GCSE (9-1) Mathematics or International GCSE Mathematics (9-1);
  • a further two sessions with a choice of workshops in each - including classroom strategies to support your high-ability students, tools to deal with maths anxiety, practical ideas to help with poorly answered exam questions, and more.

The afternoon section will include:

  • feedback on student performance for the latest AS & A level Mathematics papers;
  • does a graphic calculator help learning at GCSE?; 
  • a further two sessions with a choice of workshops in each -  including teaching and learning methodology in the A level classroom, with a particular focus on the new Pure content, innovative ways to deliver difficult concepts, plus resources to support effective course delivery and assessment, and more. 

You can book for half a day at a cost of £30+VAT or for the full day for £50+VAT and lunch is included. This course will count as 3-5.5 hours towards your CPD.

3. 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.

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:
