Saturday, 24 May 2014

The National Mathematics Teacher Conference takes place on Saturday 14th June.  It is the UKs largest single day event for mathematics teachers and is entirely free to attend.

The event is organised by La Salle Education as a means of ensuring that all teachers of mathematics, across primary and secondary schools, have access to high quality professional development as we move towards a new school year that sees the introduction of a new national curriculum and the removal of the longstanding system of curriculum levels.

The event is kindly sponsored by AQA.

The day consists of a variety of talks, workshops, networking, resource sharing and a panel debate.

With over 220 delegates attending, the vast majority being current practitioners, La Salle Education and AQA are proud to host what should prove to be an exciting, interesting and enjoyable day.

National Mathematics Support Programme

Tuesday, 29 April 2014

La Salle Education is proud to announce the launch of the National Mathematics Support Programme (NMSP).

With the upcoming changes to the new national curriculum and the removal of national curriculum levels, the NMSP is a nationwide series of support seminars aimed at helping primary and secondary schools to prepare for the new school year.

NMSP events are taking place in 9 locations across England, with the vast majority of schools being within 60 miles of an event.

Events are entirely free to attend.

Places at events are limited - please use our online booking to sign up.

 

Regional Seminars to Support the New Mathematics Curriculum in Primary and Secondary Schools

The National Mathematics Support Programme is a series of seminars taking place across England to help ensure that all teachers of mathematics have access to the information they need in order to prepare for the introduction of the new national curriculum and the removal of the system of NC Levels.

At a time of unprecedented change, it is important that all schools have access to high quality CPD and information.  At this seminar we will address three key issues facing mathematics teachers:

  • The New National Curriculum - What is different and what practical steps can schools take to successfully prepare for and implement the changes.
  • Assessment without Levels - What frameworks can be used to assess pupils' progress and how do teachers accurately measure understanding and mastery.
  • Outstanding Lessons - What practical steps can we take in our classrooms to ensure pupils make outstanding progress and have a thorough understanding of mathematics from which to build upon.

 

NMSP events are FREE to attend and open to mathematics co-ordinators and Headteachers in primary schools, heads of mathematics and senior leaders in secondary schools.  Local Authority advisors may also attend.
