The London Mathematical Society has announced that Mathematics Teachers throughout the UK can apply for grants of up to £400 to attend specific one or two-day conferences/events organised by professional mathematical organisations or to cover the costs of external trainers in schools/educational institutions.
The aim of the grant is to facilitate mathematical professional development to allow teachers in UK schools/educational institutions to develop their subject knowledge. The grant can contribute to the costs of registration for the course and a proportion of the travel and subsistence expenses of attendees. Any application for a grant under this scheme must be made by a teacher of mathematics or ITE provider based in the UK. The grants are open to teachers of mathematics from primary school to A-Level or equivalent (inclusive of STEP/AEA). The grants can also be used to assist providers of professional development to run conferences and courses that allow participants to further their professional development.
The next closing date for applications is the 31st January 2018.
