No to trickle-down training;Letter
Subject co-ordinators will disseminate their training to colleagues in school. Many will do this well, but good classroom practitioners are not necessarily good trainers. As a classroom teacher, I object to the method of training that I will receive. "Cascading" is a poor substitute for the real thing. The numeracy hour is a different way of teaching and we deserve professional training.
