Staff Training

Are Active Maths and English being used to their full potential across your school? Would you and your teaching team benefit from a refresher training session on the benefits of active learning?

We now offer Maths, English and Joint Maths and English Twilight Training Sessions, which can be tailored to your school’s specific needs. We’ll arrange for one of our experienced tutors to visit your school and deliver training to your whole staff, providing them with new strategies and practical ideas on how to deliver active lessons effectively across the school.

Teach Active

Due to the addition of our Active English product, Maths of the Day will be rebranding as Teach Active in early June. Maths of the Day (as a resource) will still exist, however – now referred to as Active Maths – it will sit alongside Active English under the Teach Active umbrella.

You will notice new logos and updated branding being rolled out in the coming weeks but rest assured that nothing fundamental has changed. Our ethos and commitment to our schools remains the same, while operationally it is very much business as usual!
