New to Teaching Core Maths Programme


The purpose of this programme is to support teachers who are new to teaching Core Maths in developing specialist knowledge for teaching Core Maths and to increase their confidence in teaching the course.

Who can take part?

This programme is for teachers who are in the first two years of teaching Core Maths and are teaching a Core Maths class during the academic year 2022/23.

What will you learn?

  • Your students will have raised awareness of the use of maths and statistics in everyday life

  • You will plan lessons/sequences of lessons to promote student understanding, confidence
    and progress

  • You will understand the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving

  • You will understand how online learning and technology can be used to support Core Maths teaching


These programmes help support the post-16 strategic goal as their introduction is in partnership and collaboration with the AMSP in providing a clear pathway of support for Core Maths teachers. This NCP consists of direct partnership working between the Maths Hubs Network and the AMSP.

The New to Teaching Core Maths project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.
