Cuisenaire® CPD Courses and Events


Inclusive Learning North are running a series of CPD courses at venues across Northern England during the Autumn Term 2018.

Each attending school will get a free mini set of Cuisenaire® rods and a discount voucher towards other Cuisenaire® Company products.

“The influence of maths teaching techniques in the Far East, involving the heavy use of concrete and pictorial mathematical representations, along with bar modelling, is increasing the use of manipulative resources right through the primary years. It is nearly 90 years since Georges Cuisenaire made his first set of simple wooden rods, and they are now more popular than ever in UK schools.

However, there are still many teachers who do not yet feel confident in the use of this resource and will often reach for other manipulatives that appear to give a quicker short- term gain of a correct answer for children. Understanding the long- term learning benefits of Cuisenaire® Rods is a vital lesson for every teacher of mathematics, whether new or experienced. For some children, this needs to be their ‘number one go-to resource’ to help them make sense of the number system. This course will help you understand how and why.”
