What are Maths Hubs?
The Maths Hubs programme brings together all mathematics education professionals in a national network of hubs, each locally led by an outstanding school or college, and working in partnership with neighbouring schools, colleges, universities, CPD providers, maths experts and employers.
This is a new way of harnessing all maths teaching expertise within an area, to spread excellent practice for the benefit of all pupils and students.
The national dimension of the programme is made possible by the hubs collaborating as a national group, pooling experience, expertise and ideas as a network, and meeting once a term at the National Maths Hubs Forum. This is a new way of fast-tracking current, school-based practice and research to an environment where national policy objectives can be explored and new ideas formulated.
The Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub
This initiative is designed to build on the excellent practice and achievement that already exists widely – but not universally – across the school and college system. It is being funded by the DfE and co-ordinated by the NCETM. It is a way of harnessing maths teaching expertise within an area, to spread excellent practice even more widely, for the benefit of all children and young people.
Yorkshire and the Humber Maths Hub welcomes partners from across the region with an appetite to work in collaboration to develop the workforce and improve outcomes for children, across all areas of maths education. The hub will lead on the England – China Exchange Programme and will facilitate a number of self- improving research projects.
The Maths Hubs programme brings together mathematics education professionals in a collaborative national network of 35 hubs, each locally led by an outstanding school or college.
Maths Hubs harness all maths leadership and expertise within an area, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.
