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 course, teachers will have the opportunity to delve deeper into the developmental sequence of content from Kindergarten to Year 6. Working in small teams, teachers will then reflect on their current practice and begin to determine areas of change moving forward.
