About the Centre

About the Centre

The NCETM is managed by a consortium of Tribal Education and Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI). It is funded by the Department for Education (DfE).

Our aims

The aims of the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) are to raise levels of achievement in maths, and to increase appreciation of the power and wonder of maths, across the school, sixth form college and further education system.

In this context, our specific task is to try to ensure that all teachers of maths - and this includes all primary school teachers, and non-specialist maths teachers - have easy access to high quality, evidence-based, maths-specific continuing professional development (CPD) at every point of their careers.

The main channel of our support for teachers and schools is the Maths Hubs programme, which we lead and coordinate. In our interaction with primary schools and primary teachers, the majority of our support comes through the various strands of the Teaching for Mastery programme.

Our activities

Collaborating with Government and its agencies, higher education institutions, research bodies, maths subject associations and other bodies devoted to maths education, and working alongside the Maths Hubs, we operate in four main ways:
