What’s the simple and cost effective way to help maths lessons be more productive,  both for teachers and students…….? 

Every now and again I get to chat with  teachers and one of the topics that often crops up is why some students don’t  bring a pen, pencil, ruler, etc, to their lessons.  They tell me that this leads to wasted time and a measure of disruption, even before teaching has begun.

In an attempt to solve this problem there’s  a  product called the “Value Maths set ” which, as the name suggests, contains all the basics that students need for their maths lessons.

Consisting of  two quality black ink ballpens, a full length HB pencil, eraser, 15 cm ruler, 180 degree protractor, metal compass and half pencil,  and a sharpener, all packed in an A5 size, clear PVC “exam friendly” wallet with a zip slider.

From just £1.25 each (ex vat) the “Value Maths set” is a convenient and cost effective solution to the problem of students who haven’t brought the correct kit to their maths lessons.  Ideal to give or sell to students at the start of lessons or at the start of a school day………  also very useful for exams.

Full details of the “Value Maths set” can be found on the website:

What’s the second most useful life skill you can give your pupils in 2019/20?

Talking to a teacher recently, she said that learning to type was the most useful skill she ever learned – apart from driving.  Yet around 85% of schools are not providing their pupils with any keyboard skills training. 

At Type&Test, we have specialised in interactive online keyboard skills training for children and adults for almost 15 years.  Our training and assessment tools deliver high success rates and are the only ones approved by Awarding Bodies to support optional national keyboard skills qualifications. 

Through our ‘Total’ managed solution, available until 31st July at a massively reduced price of just £250 plus VAT (normally £950), we’ll provide online access for an unlimited number of pupils in your school to a fun engaging and effective typing training and assessment system.  And we’ll do everything for you, from enrolments to user support and provide all the usage and progress data you want!

We can even provide an optional national typing qualification at Levels 1 and 2 (additional candidate registration fees apply).
