Who is this work group aimed at?
The Central Maths Hub is looking to identify up to 20 schools/colleges to be involved in this work group. This is a work group that is suitable for primary, secondary and FE colleagues at all stages of their professional education. Outcomes from the work group will be shared with colleagues within and beyond the hub region.
