Teacher Subject Specialist Training (TSST)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with names and email addresses of anyone who may be interested. TSST is for teachers who teach Maths, or intend to teach Maths, even though it is not their specialist subject.
The training is free. The blended approach, to do some of the training online and attend face to face workshops, proved to be popular last time. CIMT, Plymouth University run the assessment units, which you can see here.
Face to face workshops take place at The Priory School, Shrewsbury, between 2.30-5.30pm, on:
25th January, 14th March, 26th April, 23rd May, 20th June.
