Trainee Teachers

We believe our website gives reliable maths subject support for non-specialist primary maths teachers and those still in training. 

Our Rainbow Ladder maths activities could be used as a resource for teaching across the primary maths curriculum.

We are currently working on a Trainee Teacher tab for the general site menu, which will include hints and tips for teaching for maths mastery and also a Specialist Forum, which will be available only to those registered on the site as Trainee Teachers. On the Forum you will be able to ask for advice from us (Anne and Pam) and also from other forum members about maths and also any general educational matters.

If you are a non-specialist primary maths teacher or trainee our website is what you need. For £3.49 a month or £29.99 if you sign up for a full year, you will get full access to all areas of our site. Including 24 hour (at the latest) replies to individual questions by email.
