New Zealand Mathematics Workshops

The Ministry of Education is partnering with New Zealand Principals Federation on a series of workshops aimed at supporting principals to lead mathematics effectively in schools.

The workshops will be co-facilitated by Rob Proffitt-White (Math and Numeracy Director, The Learner First) and the NZPF Executive and will take leaders through high-leverage routines using existing resources that staff, and school leaders, have reported as having a positive and immediate change on their beliefs and practices in their teaching and assessing of mathematics.

These workshops will be regionally based, with a post-attendance webinar option for leaders who are unable to attend. See below for dates, times, and locations.
