The Centres for Excellence in Maths (CfEM) programme is launching a new webinar series titled, ‘The Inside Scoop: Evidence informed practice from maths teachers who have tried it’.
The 45-minute-long webinars will showcase ideas and approaches from the CfEM programme, drawing on current evidence-based research carried out by teachers in Further Education (FE) to help students to improve maths attainment.
The series of free webinars are aimed at FE maths teachers and managers and will run from 21-31 March.
