The London Mathematical Society has announced that Mathematics Teachers in the UK can apply for grants of up to £400 to attend specific one or two-day conferences/events organised by professional mathematical organisations.
The scheme is intended to provide opportunities for mathematics teachers to attend training which is specifically mathematical. It is intended to facilitate mathematical professional development to allow teachers in UK schools/educational institutions to:
- Develop their subject knowledge
- Engage in a deeper understanding of how to develop mathematical thinking
- Appreciate the interconnectivity of mathematical topics
- Update themselves on mathematics curriculum reform
- Use technology when and where appropriate.
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 next closing date for applications is the 31st January 2021.
Queries regarding applications can be addressed to the Education Grants administrator, Katherine Wright, who can discuss proposals informally with potential applicants. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or Tel: 020 7927 0801
