TTS logo CMYK.pngTTS

From humble beginnings in a garage in the Midlands, to supplying over 64 countries across the globe, we have been talking to educators and inventing new reasons for children to love learning for over 30 years.
 
It was a simple scene back in 1985; a chat with a teacher in a local school. The conversation around the lack of quality D&T resources for the classroom. One industrious evening in a garage later and the first TTS resource was born. The very next day the teacher was given the prototype. "Wow," they said, "this is exactly what I said I needed".

Numicon

Romey Tacon, an original researcher for the Numicon Project, introduced the importance of visualisation and multisensory teaching in the early days of the Overcoming Barriers to Learning in Mathematics course. It was here that we first saw how the Numicon approach could offer pupils a richly varied and multi-sensory learning experience. One that could increase their understanding of number and help remove barriers to their learning. We are very pleased to be associated with such a high quality scheme, one that shows respect to both the teacher and learner.

ATM Logo Jpeg.pngAssociation of Teachers of Mathematics

We were very pleased that the ATM has accepted our invitation to exhibit and speak at the 2013 National Dyscalculia and MLD Conference. This is because we feel the discussions about Mathematics learning difficulties need to be informed and guided by Mathematics experts and teachers. Joe Murray, ATM General Council Member, will be presenting a workshop entitled ‘Practical Geometry' at next year’s 6th National Dyscalculia and MLD Conference.

National Numeracy Logo.jpgNational Numeracy

We have been working for over 10 years to raise the awareness of  teachers and schools about the individual needs of pupils with barriers to learning Maths. So it was very pleasing to see the launch of the National Numeracy in 2012, and it was even more pleasing to see that we share the same ethos and can do attitude when it comes to the issues of numeracy.  They have exhibited at our National Dyscalculia and MLD conferences and will be at the 6th National Dyscalculia & MLD Conference next June 2014 raising awareness of the issue of low numeracy in the UK and sharing ideas and evidence on what we can all do to counter act this.


National Numeracy is an independent charity, they believe that with appropriate support and perseverance, everyone can be numerate. They aim to challenge prevailing attitudes, influence public policy and research, plus identify and promote effective approaches to improving numeracy. Where possible, they are working in partnership with others like Learning Works® to achieve these aims.
