Curtin’s Professional Learning Hub invites teachers who are new to lower secondary mathematics to a one-day workshop.

In a high school?  Not originally trained as a maths teacher?  Has your principal asked you to teach a maths class next year? This will put your mind at ease.

By the end of this session you will gain:

You will receive a signed certificate that can be used as evidence of your professional learning.
