Working with Others

NANAMIC represents the particular needs of the Further Education Mathematics Community on various advisory groups including the Joint Mathematical Council of the UK (JMC).  We meet termly with the other mathermatical subject associations.


Our consultations include those with the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) and the Department for Education (DfE). This enables us to give an effective voice to the FE Maths community.


We work closely with other organisations such as the Association of Teachers of Mathematics (ATM) and the Mathematics Association (MA). We value hearing your opinions and invite you to consider joining our email consultancy group.
