Leading and Managing Numeracy Across the Curriculum

London / Monday 13 July 2015

A one-day training course for senior leaders and numeracy coordinators, focusing on cross-curricular numeracy

Informative and relevant – it gives ideas and solutions rather than just telling you what needs to change.

Concerns about standards in numeracy and mathematics in England have been around for a number of years – almost 17 million adults in the UK have numeracy skills below those needed for the lowest grade at GCSE*.

This training course gives you the opportunity to hear from practitioners who have developed innovative ideas and implemented classroom strategies with proven success. You will discover how to strengthen cross-curricular numeracy – developing students’ confidence and proficiency in numerical skills as well as the wider use and application of mathematics.

We are excited to confirm Robert Wilne, Director for Secondary at NCETM as keynote speaker. Previously a teacher and headteacher in state and independent secondary schools, Robert joined NCETM in 2014.

He believes that education ought to change lives because it should give learners more choices: his responsibility at the NCETM is to facilitate and maximise secondary maths teachers’ success in doing so in all schools and at all levels. Robert focuses on the management of numeracy across the curriculum in his brilliant piece for our blog.

Also confirmed is Jenny Bashford. Jenny is an AST in Science and Director of Learning, she is responsible for cross-curricular numeracy at Great Barr School. Jenny is going to describe the journey that Great Barr has been on in developing and embedding the whole school numeracy focus.

The closing keynote comes from Piers Ranger, an experienced Ofsted inspector with over 20 years’ experience of senior leadership.
