Teaching Assistant Conferences – Autumn Term 2017

TA conference

Following on from the success of last year’s Teaching Assistant conferences, part of the Primary school improvement programme, Andy Brumby & Soya Herbert are back with a brand new event which will focus on providing effective support in mathematics. Delegates will gain an exciting opportunity to learn about strategies which have been proven to work, share good practice, discuss insights and experiences and reflect on the important questions below:


What is mathematics and why is it so important in all of our lives?
Why is maths scary for some people and what can we do to help them overcome their fears?
How can we help to make maths relevant, challenging and fun for all pupils?
How can we help to develop pupils’ verbal reasoning in mathematics?
How can we help pupils to make connections and apply their mathematical learning?
What can we learn from the latest research about ‘what works’ when it comes to providing effective support in mathematics?
