We are delighted to announce that we have won a Teach Primary Award! Our Developing Numeracy Skills in Learners with Dyslexia and Dyscalculia Unit has been recognised as a leading educational resource in the Maths Category!
Our Dyslexia and Literacy Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Programme has also been highly commended in the SEND category of the Teach Secondary Awards.
The awards help educators to seek out the very best resources to support pupils from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 4 – with quality determined by a panel of experts. These experts dig deep, to ensure only the most deserving resources triumph!
“The Dyslexia Action online course is a thoroughly researched and well designed CPD offer, that incorporates the important aspects of sustainable professional development: collaboration, iteration and opportunities for trialling practices with subsequent reflection and expert feedback.
Colleagues in school will be able to access the learning flexibly when it suits them (due to the asynchronous design) and it will give anyone a firm grounding in the theory and practices to support learners with dyslexia and dyscalculia in making progress. It has the potential for huge impact.“
“This training is well-structured and very comprehensive – you get a lot of content for a relatively small investment. There is a clear commitment to ensuring that it is up-to-date, neuro-affirmative and enables the learner to work through the material in a reflective way. The study guide also contains information on how to seek reasonable adjustments as a learner.”
What is our Developing Numeracy Skills in Learners with Dyslexia and Dyscalculia unit?
This accredited Level 4 unit will allow you to understand how Dyscalculia or related numeracy difficulties affect a learner’s access to Maths. You will develop strategies that will promote your learner/s comprehension of Mathematical terminology and concepts.
The unit is delivered online which offers you the flexibility to organise your time to fit around your professional and personal commitments. This runs six times a year with start dates in September, November, January, March, May and July.

Take a Sneak Peek at the unit:
Working memory plays an essential role in mathematical learning. In fact, working memory processes allow us to complete even the simplest mathematical tasks such as comparing numbers and differentiating symbols. Mathematical learning also relies on concepts being understood and applied.
In The Essence of Mathematics Teaching for Mastery, the NCETM identifies ‘Five Big Ideas’ that underpin teaching for mastery of mathematical learning in schools and colleges. These are; coherence in the curriculum, representation and structure, mathematical thinking, fluency and variation.
This diagram below shows how the ‘Five Big Ideas’ work together to support mastery. Take a look at each meaning for the five big ideas …
This unit can be found as part of our full CPD programme, which you can take individually or as part of an Award. You can find more information about these here.
