Teacher Inspiration Days
Stage: 3, 4 and 5
A series of three,
professional development days for mathematics teachers organised by the NRICH Team in Cambridge during the academic years
2008/9, 2009/10 and 2010/11.
To support mathematics teachers who are committed to nurturing confident, resourceful and enthusiastic learners.
Thanks to the generous support from the Goldman Sachs Foundation the NRICH Team are offering a
professional development programme for mathematics teachers at maintained sector schools/colleges in the UK.
The Teacher Inspiration programme will be delivered as three one-day events over the course of each academic year.
The programme is aimed at teachers of mathematics at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. The days will be highly interactive and will respond to the issues and concerns raised by teachers.
Dates and themes:
Autumn term - Enriching resources, inspiring learners
Working with free, high quality and engaging resources to meet the expectations of the new curriculum.
Workshops at KS3, KS4 and KS5
Spring term - Enriching classrooms, inspiring learning
Encouraging questioning and discussion, building confidence, challenging learners - these are some of the issues that concern us all and that we shall address on the day.
Workshops on key themes suggested by teachers.
Summer term - Enriching networks, inspiring teachers
Leave the day ready to include problem solving in your curriculum.
Learn from good practice and other teachers' experiences.
You can see examples of how schools set about the task of ensuring that problem solving becomes an integral part of their curriculum, from both the
The Goldman Sachs Foundation has generously provided support to enable us to offer places without charge to mathematics teachers at maintained sector schools in the UK.
The days will link together with participants encouraged to try out and share ideas between sessions. Participants must therefore be able to attend all three days of the programme. Schools are encouraged to send more than one teacher to all three days.

The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice.
