Work Groups

Post-16 Professional Development

The two Manchester hubs, Turing NW and NW1 Maths Hub work together to to provide support to teachers of Post-16 maths, including Core Maths, A level Maths and A level Further Maths. We work in partnership with the NCETM and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP).

In each project, teachers get together with colleagues from other schools or colleges several times over an extended period, in sessions led by a teacher or former teacher experienced in professional development and in the relevant area of maths.
