Training Support

To support schools further, the Herts for Learning (HfL) Primary Maths team are offering two twilight training webinars this spring designed to help teachers deliver this new approach effectively and with confidence.  Teachers will have the chance to explore different possible pathways and how the different parts of the resource fit together. They will have time to reflect on the pedagogy and scaffolding that is implicit in the guide, as well as see examples of pupils’ outcomes.

All delegates will receive a 30% discount on copies of the Greater Depth Maths resources.
