The Central Maths Hub, coordinated by the NCETM and part of the National Maths Hubs network works in partnership with local schools, colleges, Universities, CPD providers, maths experts and employers to drive improvement in maths education. This is facilitated through funded professional development opportunities and national collaborative projects known as Work Groups, which meet the DfE standards for teacher development.
