About Martin…I have worked in many sectors in education. I started my teaching career in secondary before moving into primary education where I was privileged to teach children in all age groups including reception. I moved from a senior management position in primary schools to initial teacher education. From there I went into a local authority as the mathematics adviser . This led me into working for the National Strategies where I had a variety of posts that included the national director for learning networks and the senior primary adviser for the north of England. After this I was seconded to the DfE to act as a best practice adviser and to work particularly on Making Good Progress and 1-1 tuition. I have always been interested in how we teach children at a young age in a way that prepares for them to become good problem solvers and how we teach arithmetic in a way that enables all to access algebra. I am equally interested in how we develop teachers from the initial training through the early stages of their career to becoming expert teachers.
