The overall aim of this project is to train teachers in the approaches drawn from the Maths Recovery Programme in order to support in-class approaches to numeracy. We are offering Module 1 this term.

In order to participate in this project schools are requested to commit to the following:
- Support the teacher to practice instruction/assessments
- Pay costs of core text and content booklet, print materials, CD, tutor costs, refreshments and support (€200 per teacher) payable to Education Centre on application. See list below of materials included in the cost.
Participating teachers will be expected to:
- Attend and participate in all training; complete school-based tasks; and complete a reflective journal/brief report.
Training will take place in your local Education Centre and will be over 15 hours, delivered as five 3-hour sessions out of school time. Proposed dates (to be confirmed) Tuesdays as follows: 12th March, 26th March, 9th April, 30th April and 14th May. A certificate of completion will be awarded.
