What do people say about Inspiring Maths Education?

Vanessa has worked with the staff as a whole through delivering continuous professional learning, with our Mathematics leader and with individual teachers to develop their practice.  She is highly skilled, knowledgeable and professional; staff find her approachable and empathetic.  As a result of her work with us, the quality of leadership in mathematics together with the quality of teaching have improved.  We have already commissioned Vanessa for further support, a clear indication of the regard we have for her as a school.

A great mix of practical and theoretical. Very useful to those new to teaching and/or those feeling less confident in mastery.

Subject leader – Uttoxeter

Delivered with passion and an empathy for those who may have struggled with fractions at school. Fantastic!
