Does your school offer Core Maths? Is your school thinking about offering Core Maths? This conference is a great way to find out more with AMSP Core Maths team. During the conference there will be a chance to hear about what it is like to teach Core Maths, how other schools are offering Core Maths, why we should be encouraging all students to study maths after GCSE. Did you know that 35% of current job vacancies are due to applicants having a lack of quantitative skills? This shocking statistic evidences the importance of students continuing mathematical study post-16.
Our Southampton conference also welcomes a very special guest! Bobby Seagull rose to fame on University Challenge and recently co-presented his own show, Monkman and Seagull’s Genius Gide to Britain; he’s also published a book, The Life Changing Magic of Numbers. Despite his impressive media resume, Bobby is a maths teacher just like you, and is passionate about getting all students to study the subject post-GCSE.
