In-school training at a glance
Customised for you
To ensure that you get the most out of in-school training, we structure training that works for your schedule and learning needs. You can book half-day, 1-day or 2-day sessions covering key learning theories, teaching methods and learning tools to help you with the successful implementation of the maths mastery approach.
Train your whole team
In-school training is designed to get your whole team, including teaching assistants, on the same path to mastery. These hands-on sessions help clarify the approach and improve teacher knowledge and confidence, resulting in enhanced support of the approach and its implementation.
Help at every step
We support you at every step in your journey to mastery, whether you are new to the mastery approach, struggling with implementation, or you want to better understand specific topics and resources.

In-school training options
No two schools or classrooms are alike. That’s why we offer a variety of training options that can be combined and customised to create a training experience that works for everyone.
2-day implementation training (recommended for schools new to the approach)
Day 1: Fundamentals of Maths Mastery – putting theory into practice
You will find out about the key learning principles underpinning the mastery approach, as well as the accompanying learning tools: ten frames, number bond diagrams, and bar modelling. You will reflect on how you can use them to support the learning of mathematics.
Day 2: Textbook Implementation – using textbooks to deepen mathematical understanding
Your team will watch a maths mastery lesson that demonstrates how the textbook supports the three-part lesson structure, enhances understanding, and encourages creativity in the classroom. Your team will also explore journaling, differentiation and assessment, and gain confidence to deliver Maths — No Problem! lessons in the classroom.
This half-day training course covers how best to implement our Foundations course at Reception. It is highly recommended for all schools adopting Foundations, even if teachers have previously attended the 2-Day Implementation Training. The course begins by explaining the Mathematics Early Learning Goals and looking at how young children learn through doing and guided play. It also examines how they progress during their Reception year. Each component of the Foundations course is fully explained, with examples of best practice, suggestions for variation and discussion of the pedagogical research underpinning the programme.
Follow-up and consultancy training (recommended for schools who have been using our programme for over a year)
We offer a range of follow-up training that takes you deeper into specific topics such as bar modelling, teaching fractions, differentiated instruction, journaling, assessment, and early years maths. Our team will be happy to discuss your specific needs.
Model Lesson plus Feedback
Our trainer will deliver a model lesson to your teachers or to a small group of children, which is a great way to see a mastery lesson in practice. This is followed by a Q & A session on lesson delivery, including guidance on lesson planning and resources.
Lesson Observation plus Feedback
During a lesson observation, our trainer will watch your teachers deliver Maths — No Problem! lessons. This will be followed by trainer feedback and a Q & A session.
The training can be delivered face-to-face in your school over a twilight, half-day or a full-day session.
Online training options
We can also provide training virtually via Zoom or Google Meet.
“I feel more confident to support the children with maths. I found many aspects of this training fascinating and will look at mathematics very differently in future.”
