Bespoke Newsletter

April 2017

Welcome to the tenth issue of Bespoke. We’ve entered double figures! This issue gets to the heart of how Maths Hubs are enabling teachers to engage in professional learning activities that amount to more than a sole attendance at a one-day workshop. We hear from both primary and secondary teachers working with colleagues from around the corner and across the country over a period of time – all with the aim of making changes that lead to pupils learning maths more securely. If this appeals to you, why not find out if your local Maths Hub has a Work Group that you or your school could join from September? www.mathshubs.org.uk/find-your-hub
