Welcome to the NCETM Secondary Magazine
Each week we will publish a new issue of the secondary magazine on our portal, carrying news of current issues and professional development in Secondary mathematics. We hope you enjoy our first issue.

Each issue of the Secondary magazine will feature a range of items to encourage professional development. Here is an overview of the regular features you will find:

These modules have been written for use by anyone, but are ideal for giving a focus to a department meeting or Inset session. Each week the archive will build up in to a shopping list of PD activities so that you can pick and choose the materials that best suit your own development needs. This week, our first module is about self evaluation. This module can be used to inform the department improvement plan and identify what needs there are in terms of professional development within the department. Completing this module gives a good idea of what future modules you may like to undertake. The first twelve modules are listed so that you can see what’s coming up. With so many excellent sites available offering a wide range of activities and developmental materials, it is sometimes difficult to know which ones really are worth a visit. Each week we will recommend one website with a short reason for making it one that you should visit - and an area for you to add your comments about the site. With so many things going on in school it can at times be difficult to take time to reflect on priorities and plan for the future. This section of the magazine will give a gentle, and sometimes humorous, reminder about some of the things we could be doing. With all the expertise that exists across the country (you!) it is right for us to share our knowledge and ideas. Why not pop in to the Secondary Forum to discuss your work with colleagues far and wide?
