       Learning Maths: Getting the most out of Assessment

The 2020 Virtual Mathematics Conference will be an unmissable, one-day event for teachers and leaders to come together and examine best practice for supporting the learning of mathematics. This year the conference will focus on assessment and how this forms an integral part of a mastery model of learning.  

Held in a virtual environment for the first time, delegates will hear from leading experts, widen their professional network, have an opportunity to reflect upon their current practice and receive valuable insights and resources to improve mathematics teaching and learning within their school. The event will be a fun, interactive professional development opportunity for all phases of mathematics education.

Leeds for Learning has long held a strong reputation for delivering the highest quality teaching and training within the region, working closely with schools and colleges to understand the issues they’re facing and deliver practical solutions and advice.  This conference is open to education professionals from all across the country who wish to expand their expertise and develop a best practice approach.

We are proud to be welcoming the following keynote speakers :

  • Mark McCourt – the UK’s leading expert on teaching for mastery approaches
  • Jonathan Hall – creator of ‘Mathsbot.com’, leading mathematics practitioner and a teaching and learning specialist for The Learning Partnership
  • Gareth Metcalfe – Director of I See Maths, working with schools to put reasoning and problem-solving at the heart of mathematical learning 

The keynote sessions will address the implications for all schools and settings of successfully embedding a mastery model for learning and discuss how assessment is key to its success.

There will also be a comprehensive programme of workshops available for delegates to attend throughout the day,  facilitated by local and regional school practitioners and independent organisations West Yorkshire Maths Hub and Pearson Edexcel.   Full details of all workshops can be found below.
