This page will be regularly updated provide links to websites of some of the main organisations that can help to provide schools and colleges with visiting lecturers, as well as introducing the NCETM opportunity for teachers and lecturers to nominate people who they feel have given a lecture or presentation that they would recommend to others.

Nominating Lecturers
If you have seen a lecture or presentation that you feel is really good and would encourage others to take advantage of we would like you to nominate it. In order to do this, please can you:

1. Give the title or the lecture or presentation.
2. The name of the lecturer and their contact information.
3. A brief statement that can be placed on the web portal to guide others who may be interested in this lecture.

Please send all of this information to info@ncetm.org.uk. The NCETM will then contact the person that you have nominated and then make the details available on this page.

Holgate Lectures for Schools and Colleges
The Holgate Lecture Scheme is run by the London Mathematical Society. There are a number of different lectures available covering different topics, from a team of five lecturers, which are aimed at students in years 8 to 13. The lecturers do not charge a fee, but travelling expenses do need to be provided. Schools and colleges are expected to provide an audience of at least 50 for each lecture, so it is a good idea for a group of institutions to organise a joint lecture.

Royal Statistical Society Schools Lecture
Each year the Royal Statistical Society appoints a lecturer to deliver a lecture aimed at sixth form and GCSE students. The lecture is officially given once in a school, but can be repeated at other locations if requested.

Join the NCETM Statistics Teacher Network - a support and professional development network for new and experienced teachers of statistics. The RSS are contributors and participants in this community.


The Royal Institution
The Royal Institution runs events for schools. An interesting development is that the RI is organising lectures in schools in the South West and the North West. These events are free of charge. The lectures are on mathematical and scientific topics.

The LMS (London Mathematical Society) also run annual 'Popular Lectures', usually 2 lectures run in each of two venues.

The 2007 lectures have already taken place, but the good news is that this and previous years' lectures have been recorded for release on DVD with some titles also being available on video.

For further information go to www.lms.ac.uk and go to 'Events'
