Conference 2017

conf logo2 long

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 Holiday Inn hotel, 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!.

Sarah Plumridge, Student Teacher, University of Worcester, 2016
