Delivery Model

This short course is delivered as an after-school customised workshop at your school for your whole staff. It most often follows a day of demonstration lessons on the same concept, but it can also be delivered as a ‘stand-alone’ course. It is suitable for early career teachers, experienced teachers, learning support educators, maths leaders and school leaders.

You can choose either a 2-hour or 3-hour course. If you choose the 3-hour option there will be more time for delving deeper into syllabus content and engaging in additional tasks. Anita will also assist your staff to develop a consistent whole-school approach to implementing hands-on resources.
