College launches website to support teaching in maths

Tameside College has launched a new website to help promote good practice in the teaching of maths in further education.

The Centre for Excellence in Maths website, which is part of a five year nationwide project, will allow teachers to share research and ideas with the other colleges taking part.

The site includes an introduction to the project, training opportunities, collaborative pinboards, a ‘latest projects’ page for regular updates and much more.

The Centre of Excellence in Maths was launched in 2018 by the Department of Education to improve attainment levels in post-16 learning. The programme provides grants to the 21 colleges involved in the project, to employ teaching staff and develop research into improving basic maths skills.

Lorna McMahon, maths teacher at Tameside College, said: “By taking part in the project and using the website, I feel energised and enthused about my teaching practice. The site is a huge huge benefit, as it allows us as teachers to share our best practice and vice-versa. The end goal is to maintain a collaboration across the partner colleges and ensure that we are all working together, to lift students aspirations and help them to achieve the qualifications they need in later life.”

If you are a teacher in the FE sector, your participation is welcomed. The Centre for Excellence in Maths website is now live and can be viewed at:
