The Easter Conference is an annual highlight of ATM’s programme of professional development events and is taking place on the 10 - 13 April 2017 at the *Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon. The theme this year is 'Mathematical Learning Journeys'.
The conference offers members an invaluable opportunity to explore new ideas and make social and professional connections in a stimulating and challenging environment that encourages face-to-face sharing and learning.
Learn first-hand about the latest developments in mathematics education and be inspired by the wide range of sessions available
I found the conference to be a valuable source of ideas that I can implement in the classroom. I was able to engage in some fabulous discussions that will further direct my teaching. I cannot wait for next year!.

The London Mathematical Society:
Objectives: The scheme is to provide opportunities for mathematics teachers to attend training which is specifically mathematical. It is intended to facilitate mathematical professional development to allow teachers in UK schools/educational institutions to:
a) Develop their subject knowledge.
b) Engage in a deeper understanding of how to develop mathematical thinking
c) Appreciate the interconnectivity of mathematical topics
d) Update themselves on mathematics curriculum reform
e) Use technology when and where appropriate
As we are confident that attendance and active participation at the ATM's annual conference does all this and more, we would strongly encourage you to apply for a grant.
Full details of the scheme and the application form are available on the LMS website.
Application deadline is 31 Janaury.
