Course Details:
Area: Early Years, Primary
Time Commitment: 4 days or equivalent
Aim: Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy which underpins it

Who can take part?

  • You will develop an understanding of key principles and approaches associated with teaching for mastery
