Working from a robust research and evidence base, the TIM Series supports teachers and leaders to build more high-impact instruction into their classrooms and schools, to accelerate learning for all students.

  • Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools (MACS) and Ochre Education have partnered with Teach Well to support teachers and schools to get the most from the new Ochre Education materials for F-2.
  • Primary schools are invited to apply to join the first wave of the Teaching for Impact in Mathematics (TIM) Series delivered by Teach Well.
  • The TIM Series works from a robust research and evidence base to support teachers and leaders to build more high-impact instruction into their own classroom and accelerate learning for all students.
  • For F-2 teachers and Mathematics leaders, the TIM Series includes a one-day workshop, a self-reflection and video coaching cycle for each teacher and structured opportunities to collect and reflect on student outcomes data.
  • For school leaders, they will join their teachers for the one-day workshop and work with their colleagues across schools in a one-day Leading Teaching for Impact in Mathematics for Primary workshop to support the implementation of the Ochre resources and embed effective practices in their schools.
  • A limited number of places are available in the first two cohorts in 2024.
  • Further information is available in the brochure.
