Maths Recovery

Mathematics Recovery Council UK & Ireland



Mathematics Recovery is a long established international intervention programme operating throughout the English-speaking world since 1992.

Professional development in the Maths Recovery Programme prepares teachers to approach mathematics instruction in a new way. It emphasises ongoing assessment, careful observation, gauging student's current knowledge and strategies, and building on them to increase the student's knowledge, ability and self-confidence in mathematics. It also engages teacher reflection through the use of videotape of both the assessment interviews and the teaching.

Maths Recovery Intervention Professional Development

This 8 day training programme is for teachers and experienced teaching assistants involved in mathematics intervention. It will enable teachers to become specialists in children's early mathematical development and equip them to support colleagues within the school community.

Full details of our NCETM accredited training are available in the Intervention Training 2017 (pdf)

We do offer a two day training course for classroom teachers which gives guidance and support about using Maths Recovery strategies and resources in the classroom for group and whole class teaching. This training is focussed around the text 'Teaching Number in the Classroom' 2nd edition.

"Really made me think about how I teach numeracy in class and I feel much more aware of where children should be, what they need to do to develop their numeracy skills and how they need to get there."

"The use of video is a really useful tool. During the course, it is great to see lessons being taught by other teachers."

"Working with colleagues on the course is a really positive experience. It’s good to know that there are other people in the same position as you and that there is always someone there to help you, if needed."

"Do not make any changes. The course is amazing."
