Primary Numeracy Leadership Development Group

Led by an experienced primary teacher, numeracy coordinator and numeracy work group leader for the NCETM, TVTSA is offering six network meetings for colleagues and coordinators to explore effective practice for teaching numeracy.

Each session will be developed in collaboration with all members of the group to provide six sessions that engage and support the needs of all those attending.

These sessions will hope to ensure all practitioners:

  • are able to discuss and collaborate with other numeracy leaders regularly to provide a supportive network and guidance as they are developing their leadership roles
  • are given the opportunity to explore a range of resources that are showing a particular success in schools,
  • feel they can promote and engage pupils with a love of mathematical learning.

The first two sessions are provided below. The outline for the following four sessions will be discussed in session 1.

Session 1 – Tuesday 24 September 1.30-3pm
