Created in 2006, the goal of the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) is to ensure all teachers of mathematics have access to high quality continuing professional development.
To do this, the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics has been developing a sustainable program of continuing mathematics professional development. The NCETM supports teaching schools and other improvement agents in their work with schools, colleges, and teachers across England.
The NCETM encourages educators to learn from their own best practices by working jointly among staff and by sharing good practices locally, regionally, and nationally.
Collaboration takes place both virtually through the NCETM portal and face-to-face through a regional network of established self-sustaining CPD network meetings facilitated by the NCETM.
Principal features provided by the NCETM include:
Online support for professional development.
Portal resources such as the sector magazines.
Online development modules.
Support for providers of continuing professional development.
The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics also funds and publishes research into effective mathematics teaching practices and continuing professional development.
