Update: A full suite of online training is now available on the Number Fun Training Portal

Number Fun Online Training – Summer Programme

Designed to build your confidence in teaching the primary mathematics curriculum for different ages and abilities.

Dave’s Number Fun Online Training sessions aim to provide high-quality CPD that helps teachers and teaching assistants develop up their mathematical understanding and discover new, mastery approaches to the teaching of mathematics within school.

Each session is run live as a Zoom Webinar designed to last approximately 90 minutes including time for questions.

Individual sessions are £18 incl VAT. Discounts are available for schools who wish to purchase multiple places. Schools can also pay by invoice for the training.

The purchases below are licenced for individual access. For school or group bookings please email jayne@numberfun.com

 Thank you so much for this training. I have attended o​ther​ online training over the lockdown and believe me, it is not a patch on what you are delivering. Yours is interactive and models worked examples and you don’t just talk at us. What you say is backed up with evidence which gives it meaning and a greater confidence in what you are delivering.

 The training offered lots of practical ideas to support the teaching and learning of addition and subtraction. It also offered some valuable subject knowledge.

 I would just like to say how useful I have found this suite of online CPD. It has been of great value to me …

There is so much fabulous stuff that I would love to share and I worry about the danger of overload when delivering CPD, particularly at the end of a busy day in the classroom. I want to enthuse rather than wear anyone out! This training has provided me with this focus…

 I found the training to be very well delivered. Particularly liked using the visualiser to give practical exmaples.
