It’s that time again – where I (Seager) takes over Mel’s blog for a limited-edition guest appearance, and guess what … I’ve gone and convinced Mel to dig out her hat yet again! (well … I say convinced … I mean she will have no choice after I press publish!!) 

On Monday 25th June, we will hold the second (I still can’t believe the success of the first) JustMaths Conference at the Alton Towers Hotel Conference Centre. We have managed to secure headline sponsorship from OCR, Pearson and AQA who will be on hand all day to support and answer questions.  The presenters on the day include the inspirational Craig Barton, Most Able specialist Pietro Tozzi, resource guru Jo Morgan, specialists from the exam boards and representatives from OFQUAL and OF COURSE myself and Mel will be doing a session too!  What a superb opportunity to reflect and plan going forward!

We are determined that our conferences are like no other (ask the 250 who attended last year!) – we want this to not only offer key support, a chance to reflect and plan going forward, but to also be a key opportunity for teachers (and maybe even whole departments) to join together with a huge sigh of relief after the exams have finished for the year (I personally also want to pick up a load of free pens from the exhibitors!).

And of course… prepare for some twists throughout the day – it is at Alton Towers after all!

To be in with a chance of picking up one of 5, pairs of tickets for your department, by Friday 27th April either:

•             Leave a comment on this blog post below or

•             Retweet the “pinned” tweet on @Just_Maths Twitter profile page with a link to this blog post or

•             Like this post on Facebook or

•             Mail [email protected] (I prefer this option as it will clog up her inbox even more than normal!! )

(If you have already booked yourself on to the conference, please do still enter.  If you win we will credit back the cost to your school.  Also – if you are not successful in this draw, and are planning on booking, please don’t leave it too late as we had to stop bookings last year and run a waiting list!).

Good luck all – I’m now getting off Mel’s Blog.
