We are pleased to work alongside the Advanced Maths Support Programme (AMSP) in our offer for Post-16 professional development. All of our Post-16 CPD programmes are designed and delivered in collaboration with AMSP and aim to support schools in developing the work we do at Primary and Secondary all the way through to Level 3 provision.

Developing A-Level Pedagogy

The Cheshire and Wirral Maths Hub are looking to recruit up to 7 teachers who are interested in collaboratively developing their understanding of effective A-Level mathematics pedagogy.

This programme provides national support for the effective development of pedagogy in the teaching of A-level Mathematics to support Covid recovery, to enhance the quality of teaching and the conceptual understanding of students, and the development of participants as leaders of A-level teaching professional development in their own school or college.

This programme and its Work Groups aim to develop and sustain local communities of practice involving collaboration between teachers in developing pedagogy and in their teaching of A-level Mathematics.

Supporting Post-16 GCSE Re-sit

Work Groups will explore effective ways of teaching key content to GCSE resit students and effective ways of working with teachers of post-16 resit GCSE. Participants will, through collaboration and experimentation, deepen their knowledge and understanding of the curriculum demands of GCSE Maths and their awareness of pedagogical approaches that best support students taking GCSE for the second time.

Professional Development Lead Accreditation for Level 3

The NCETM Professional Development Lead Accreditation is designed for those who lead professional development for teachers of maths. The Cheshire and Wirral Maths Hub are looking to recruit one person for this programme in the academic year 2021/22.

What is involved?

  • three one-day workshops
  • completion of an Accreditation Evidence Document (AED, which facilitates critical reflection on your learning and the PD you design, deliver and evaluate over the year)
  • designing, leading, reviewing and refining a programme of support for maths teacher professional development, drawing upon a range of evidence-informed models and activity.

Schools, colleges and other organisations releasing members of staff to participate in this programme will be expected to support members of staff through the programme by enabling them to complete the expectations for accreditation. Senior leaders of any participating organisation will be asked to sign a commitment before the member of staff begins the programme.


NOW RECRUITING (for a Immediate start) - Developing Core Maths Programme

In collaboration with AMSP, the Cheshire and Wirral Maths Hub is looking to run a Work Group of approximately six teachers from six different institutions who are keen to look at how Core Maths is taught. This Work Group is specifically aimed at teachers who already have experience teaching Core Maths but wish to develop their practice further through professional discussion with colleagues from other schools and colleges.
