Work Groups

All 40 Maths Hubs offer a range of different professional development opportunities. These ‘projects’ – listed below – cover mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy in all educational phases. When you take part in a project, in most cases you will participate in a what we call a Work Group.

For further information on the Work Group model please visit the ‘What is a Work Group’ page in the ‘about us’ section.
