NCP18-17 Supporting Core Maths This project provides support for departments offering Core Maths by enabling teachers to develop robust teaching approaches through collaboration and effective use of existing resources. The Work Group is run in partnership between the Maths Hubs network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP). Participants will gain understanding of the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving, and will appreciate the different Core Maths courses and be able to choose the one appropriate for their students. First session has happened, but spaces are still available
NCP18-04 NCETM accredited PD lead programmes This ongoing work in all Maths Hubs is for practitioners involved in leading the professional development of colleagues and seeking to gain accreditation as an ‘NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead’. Participants will take part in three face-to-face days (bespoke to Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Post-16) over the course of 2018/19, together with institution-based work and individual study undertaken in between these days.

NCP18-18 Embedding A Level Technology Work Group (Norfolk and Suffolk Hub) The new A level requires that the use of technology ‘permeates’ study of mathematics. This Work Group, run in partnership with the Advanced Maths Support Programme, will explore practical approaches for integrating technology in the A Level Mathematics (or Further Mathematics) curriculum. Participants will explore where, when and how to use technology to enhance students’ learning, understanding and experience, and will develop their own technology skills. The underlying theme of each Work Group is to develop participants as technology champions in their own departments. Suffolk – starting 22 Jan
Norfolk – from 12 Feb
