Lifting the numeracy levels of Victorian students is a key Education State goal. Numeracy outcomes are crucial determinants in the ability of children and young people to reach their potential.
In 2017, the Department of Education and Training introduced the Literacy and Numeracy Strategy. The strategy aims to support system-wide excellence and equity in literacy and numeracy.
The Numeracy Suite is a selection of professional learning that will assist to lift student outcomes by developing strong leaders who drive whole-school numeracy improvement. The suite comprises:
- Leading Numeracy Orientation
- Numeracy Masterclass (Primary)
- Numeracy Masterclass (Secondary)
- Numeracy Webinar Series
- Numeracy Leader Area Workshops
- Numeracy Leader Needs Analysis Tool.
The Numeracy Suite connects to an extensive range of Department of Education and Training resources and initiatives, including the Middle Years Literacy and Numeracy Support initiative and the Mathematics Teaching Toolkit. The Numeracy Suite complements this work and other professional learning offered across the Department.
Bastow also offers a comprehensive range of high-quality, evidence-informed professional learning that supports you to implement, promote and influence exemplary literacy practice.
