Summary

Join us to explore what makes good mathematics teaching. This course suitable for NQTs and mathematics teachers who are in the early years of their teaching career considers a range of teaching strategies to help engage and inspire students during your first teaching post. We will look at questioning, promoting positive behaviour, planning for learning and ways of giving feedback that make a difference.

The course consists of two residential periods to help build confidence and support you as a newly qualified mathematics teacher.

"There were a lot of useful tips and strategies given to us. We discussed situations from our teaching that were not good and got advice on how to improve it, change it, etc. I have few things I'm going to try out to improve my practice."

During this course, we will:
