Registering with the NCETM costs nothing, and is very easy to do. Just log in from the Sign in/Register button in the top right hand corner of the homepage, or the left-hand column on any interior page.
Once you are a registered NCETM user, you can get the most out of all the National Centre has to offer. You will have full access to all information on our website and can join in with lots of communities, and don’t forget to enter your regional and phase specific details, as these will allow you to benefit from directly relevant information.
Importantly, registered users will also have access to the Personal Learning Space (PLS), which includes the Self-evaluation Tools (SET).
The PLS provides each of our registered users with their own private area within the site. Here you can link to favourite items for easy future access, collate your own contributions, make notes and reflections on resources and materials, and collect evidence for use in your career progression. This tool is an excellent way to organise your professional learning and development.
The Self-evaluation Tools enable users to identify weaknesses in their mathematical content knowledge and pedagogical skills. It suggests areas in which mathematics can be embedded, and further areas for professional development. The ‘Next Steps’ help you to find the most appropriate resources, information and support to build on your own, personal results. Teachers have used this individually, or as a school and department to develop together.
Finally, once you have registered, you will also receive our monthly e-newsletter, keeping you up to date with useful information on what’s happening in the National Centre and in the world of mathematics education.
