Become a Problem-solving School with NRICH!

Posted on in News

NRICH is inviting schools to sign up for the new Problem-solving Schools charter and become a recognised NRICH Problem-solving School!

The NRICH project, which is part of the University of Cambridge, is launching a new Free initiative for schools this autumn to support the teaching of problem-solving within your school.

The Problem-solving Schools Programme
Problem-solving is a critical skill in empowering students for the future. It opens up a world of possibilities as students must apply their knowledge, think laterally and use their creativity to solve challenges. It is also a crucial part of helping them discover the joy of mathematics.

As part of NRICH’s mission to develop confident, resilient problem-solvers who value and enjoy working mathematically, they are launching the Problem-solving Schools Programme.

This nationwide campaign will drive home the importance of problem-solving and ensure that schools are supported to nurture the development of these skills from key stages 2, 3 and 4. It will open opportunities for students to practise, embed and decide which strategy to employ to solve problems in different contexts.

Schools that become Problem-solving Schools will receive high-quality problem-solving resources. Schools will also receive dedicated teacher CPD in the new year.
