The White Rose Maths Hub announced on 29th April that it has licensed three Teaching School Alliances to deliver its popular Bar Modelling twilight training. This new alliance will meet the growing appetite for the Hub’s training, which helps teachers to deliver Maths education more effectively.

Working at the forefront of Bar Modelling training, the White Rose Maths Hub offers a range of training that helps schools and students to benefit from this powerful technique. The Hub’s team is passionate about helping teachers aim for mastery, and Bar Modelling is a cornerstone to this approach. The technique is used in some of the world’s most successful countries for Maths results, including Singapore, and offers children and young people a visual method of learning and problem-solving.

The White Rose Maths Hub is one of 35 hubs working to support early years, Primary, Secondary and further education providers to transform the way they teach Maths, as well as inspire a passion and love of this crucial subject in children and young people. The hubs work collaboratively, and while the White Rose Maths Hub has designated areas of Calderdale, Bradford, Kirklees and Leeds, it has a national profile, meeting a demand for the training where it is currently not available.

To help meet this demand, the hub has now licenced three Teaching School Alliances to deliver the Bar Modelling twilight in their region. The alliances can also provide the training as part of INSET or whole school training. These alliances are with Bourneville Junior School Teaching Alliance (Birmingham), Exceed Teaching School Alliance (Bradford) and Northern Lights Teaching School Alliance (Skipton).

“There is currently a huge appetite for Bar Modelling training, with teachers keen to understand how they can capture the power of this teaching method within their own schools,” said Tony Staneff, White Rose Maths Hub lead. “As a hub, we receive requests from across the country for local and whole-school training, and our licensing model allows schools to access our high-quality training at a local level. We work very closely with teaching schools interested in being licenced to deliver our Bar Modelling training to ensure that delegates gain the same skills and knowledge as offered by training delivered directly by the hub.

“These are exciting times, and we are continuing to grow and expand our range of training. We look forward to supporting more and more schools through our licensing programme, which will see this training being made available in their area.”

Trainers from each teaching school have undergone training, enabling them to offer the same experience as that available from the White Rose Maths Hub. Although the training is offered under the umbrella of the relevant Teaching School Alliance, it is under licence from the White Rose Maths Hub, meaning the content and outcomes for delegates are exactly the same.

    Is Learning Fun for You, Teacher?

    Over the weekend, my family of five went to an Orlando theme park, and I decided we should really enjoy ourselves by purchasing an Unlimited Quick Queue pass. It was so worth the money! We rode every ride in the park at least twice, but one ride required us to ride down a rapidly flowing river, which quenched us with water. It was incredible that my two-year-old was laughing as well. We rode the Infinity Falls ride four times in one day—BEST DAY EVER for FAMILY FUN in the Sun! The entire experience was epic, full of energizing emotions and, most importantly, lots of smiles. What made this ride so cool was that the whole family could experience it together, the motions were on point, and the water was the icing on the cake. It had been a while since I had that type of fun, and I will never forget it.

    STEM skills have been a major focus in education for over a decade and more young people are taking science, technology, engineering, and maths subjects at university than ever before, according to statistics published by UCAS.
