LONDON, Oct. 24, 2019 /CNW/ - With the recent educational policy changes, teacher trainer organizations in England have the added responsibility of ensuring the literacy and numeracy skills of new teachers. To support its members in this task, the National Association of School-Based Teacher Trainers (NASBTT [https://c212.net/c/link/?t=0&l=en&o=2621548-1&h=4086466939&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nasbtt.org.uk%2F&a=NASBTT]) has entered into a partnership with Vretta [https://c212.net/c/link/?t=0&l=en&o=2621548-1&h=3740177232&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vretta.com%2F&a=Vretta] to raise the mathematics proficiency of new teachers.

The partnership has led to the creation of a custom version of Vretta's Elevate My Maths platform to upgrade the fundamental maths skills of new teachers.
