Highlights of our trip to Auro Techical School. Had a great time with the dedicated teachers and really enjoyed giving them the training in JDB Maths. Looking forward to working with them when they start the JDB sessions with the new students starting Jan 2020.

JDB Continues with Local Maths Award into Second Year

JD Booster, a leading provider of teaching supplements for 11-14 year olds has announced it will continue its sponsorship of a brand new education award into its second year. Last year, JDB, launched the award for Most Promising Talent in Mathematics at Harrow FE College, and have now confirmed that they will be continuing to support the development of promising local students with another award.

The move comes as research published by the Institute of Fiscal Studies reveals that children with strong maths skills earn significantly more in their careers. Coupled with the fact that as many as 85% of older children suffer with maths anxiety, and the need for support and supplemental tutoring in mathematics is clear for all to see. JD Booster’s award will act as a real incentive for youngsters to overcome their anxieties about mathematics and become more involved with a subject that could catapult them into the top jobs when they leave school.

Why should parents be concerned about the new GCSE exams?

Yet again, parents face more meddling with the children’s education. We hope this is going to last and yes, we are in support of bringing in more rigour to raise the standards of our education. It is our responsibility, collectively, to emphasise the importance of good solid education that lasts the lifetime of children. Parents should ensure that the school will make use of the new structure to enhance the education experience of the child.

Strong maths skills leads to better success

Government project interviews JDB

JDB’s founder was invited to participate in a Government initiative on providing career guidance to future mathematicians.  Click on the link to hear Jay Jobanputra, of JD Booster, speak: http://www.beingamathematician.org/Jobanputra/index.html

The project was done by Tony Mann (University of Greenwich) and Chris Good (Birmingham University) and funded by the National HE STEM Programme Mathematics Curriculum Innovation Fund. The project, as well as providing career guidance, also produced resources for the undergraduate mathematics curriculum on “Being a professional mathematician”.

CPD Training draws in professionals from Abu Dhabi and Essex!
