This is a good time to book your place on the NCETM National CPD Conference Professional Learning Networks: learning better through learning together.
Date: 1 December 2010
Time: 10am - 4pm
Location: Sheffield. Venue: TBC

Join teachers from across the country to explore the benefits of networking and collaboration to enhance your mathematics teaching and learning. Hear from practitioners who have created networks of all sizes across their department, school or college, local cluster group, HEIs and industry to discover how collaboration by individuals and organisations can help tackle issues, deliver practical resources and increase pupil attainment.
The day will include:

  • an exhibition showcasing NCETM-funded projects that focus on creating networks to share ideas between individuals, departments and institutions, tackle issues in mathematics learning and support professional development
  • interactive group sessions to explore the power of working and learning together
  • workshops to present examples of collaboration and networks from schools, colleges, subject associations and organisations
  • keynote presentations from inspiring individuals who utilise networks.

Details of the programme will be published on the portal next month. The conference is free to attend and is open to teachers, lecturers and advisers from all sectors. To book your place please email events@ncetm.org.uk.

Have you explored the maths careers website? It is packed with articles about how mathematics is used in life all over the world. Students can read the career profiles of people who are applying their mathematical knowledge and qualifications in a wide range of occupations such as environmental protection, business and sport. The site, which was re-launched last December, now contains much new material, including pages for teachers and careers advisers from which you can download an imaginative variety of useful free resources and activities.
