NCETM Press Background Information
The NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) is a Government initiative to improve teaching and learning in maths at all stages of education in England.
It supports the collaborative professional development of teachers of maths, and the development of maths teaching across departments and schools, in two main ways. First, through the coordination of the Maths Hubs Programme, and second through providing resources, information and guidance via its website.
The Department for Education and Skills [now the Department for Education (DfE)] set up the NCETM in response to Professor Adrian Smith’s 2004 report Making Mathematics Count.
Tribal Group has been the principal body leading the contract since 2009. In recent years, a key partner has been MEI. The current contract began in summer 2022.
Journalists seeking additional information on the NCETM and/or Maths Hubs should email an enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
