Mathematics Subject Leader Network Meetings run by Richard Perring – The intention for these meetings is to provide an opportunity to work with colleagues from the region, to engage in some mathematics and consider how to apply it in the different schools and contexts represented. There will also be opportunities to discuss updates on regional and national initiatives. Time will also be provided for some strategic thinking, planning and networking, allowing Subject Leaders to work collaboratively across the region.

More information and a chance to book coming soon.
