MATHS CPD OFFERS from North West Learning Partnership

Please see below, Mathematics leadership, teacher and support staff opportunities for the autumn term.
Given the circumstances we have decided to offer a blended approach to training next term.
We have taken the opportunity, where possible to move some events to online training but as you will appreciate some sessions don’t allow for the best possible learning opportunities by being ‘virtual’.
With this in mind we are offering the following: 
  • Excellent Maths Teacher Programme Starting Thursday 17th September.
  • Head Teacher briefing- Implications for maths teaching in the most important year for decades
    Tara will look at how to support all children in school after the missing months. How can we prepare to support children to make accelerated progress? She will offer alternative medium-term plans to support all year groups- Tuesday 15th September, 8.30-11am at Mercure St Helens Hotel, Linkway West, Saint Helen’s, WA10 1NG.  The HT briefings will be held on a termly basis.
  • Maths Subject Leaders– aut term meeting- Friday 2nd October– 9am-3.30pm at Mercure St Helens Hotel, Linkway West, Saint Helen’s, WA10 1NG.
    Each session will support maths leads to:
    Develop leadership skills in line with key policies and procedures across school
    Explore thoroughly a mathematics area looking at progression across all year groups
    Explore national and local issues and provide key updates from North West 3 Maths Hub and NCETM
Online sessions- see brochure for further details, times and dates.
  • Teaching Times Tables – Preparing to Test. 
    The session will focus on:
    How to use models and images to create connections between multiplication and division leading to
    How to teach tables rather than just reciting them
    To develop strategies to support remembering, retaining and using times tables facts rather than ‘counting
    Delegates will be given materials to support practice in class.

    To take place on: Tuesday 22nd September- 
    Year 3 and 4 -9:30am – 11:30am
    Year 5 and 6- 1 – 3pm

The majority of maths training sessions being offered will commence in November. At this stage we are hoping to host these face to face. However, given the ever changing climate and uncertainty of the year ahead we will convert all training offers to online events.
Online sessions will be delivered on the dates stipulated in the brochure. Timings will be altered slightly and will run:
All full days will be delivered: 9:30 -11:30 and 1-3.
All materials will be sent out after the event to delegates that register and attend the zoom meeting.
Once registered with Paula Foster- ‘zoom’ invites will be sent to the contact on the booking. 
During face to face events no paper based resources will be given out. All materials will be sent electronically.
Please see the COVID statement attached, as you will see we are taking all necessary precautions to ensure all delegates and staff are protected. 
We will only allow delegates that are booked onto the training to attend the sessions. With this in mind please ensure you book places at all events that you wish to attend (this includes alliance member schools). Previously we have allowed people that have turned up, without booking, into events. Due to reduced numbers and spacing this will not be allowed.
Don’t forget… NWLP Members receive FREE places at ALL leadership meetings this includes: HT briefings and Subject Leader events. These places MUST be booked in advance to ensure places are secured. Thank you! 🙂
Please see brochure attached for additional Maths and other training opportunities that are running throughout the year. 
Tara Loughran will deliver all Maths training sessions. 
If you would like to book places on any of the events please contact: 
Paula Foster-  
If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate in contacting one of the team.
Have a great summer, stay safe.
We look forward to welcoming you back in September!
