A Level CMEP training (over 2 years)- working with MEI this course explored a range of resources on the CMEP website, helped participants to understand the philosophy for teaching and learning mathematics which underpins the CMEP project and maximise the impact of the resources in the classroom. 30 delegates attended over two sessions with a gap task. This resulted in extremely positive feedback. This course will run again in 2016-17.
