Justine Greening: teacher development key to school improvement (ASCL Speech 10 March 2017)
"We need to take a more active, stronger approach where it is most needed, building the capacity to enable genuine and sustained school improvement in the future. Improving the quality of what is taught and how it is taught - ensuring that we can spread best practice, such as maths mastery approaches, where it is most needed".
Quotes from participants:
"I found all the sessions really useful in seeing and making links between representations, fluency and probing questions. My subject knowledge in Geometrical reasoning and Trigonometry has improved significantly. I felt this was an area of Maths I wasn't confident with but following the session I am able to attempt the questions in the workbook much more confidently. I love maths even more than before! " Iram Riaz Year 6 Teacher
"I found the maths course interesting and a refresher. It helped me develop some areas in Maths which I am not exposed to as working in a Reception class. I enjoyed the Algebra session the best."
Nusrat Javed- Reception Class teacher
"Learned about how to present/teach maths (importance of representations - no matter the age) as well as increasing my understanding of the subject.
It was not only informative, but enjoyable - and I am not alone in thinking that!"
Hassan Mohammed - Maths specialist teacher
"I loved those Maths sessions. It was a challenge but I really enjoyed them."
Muhammad Amer Khan - Yr 3 teacher
