Maths Memos

Apply now to join the ACME Outer Circle!


I am delighted to announce that the 2014 Open Call for Outer Circle members is now open.

You might already know that the Outer Circle is made up 36 individuals who help the members of the Committee in developing policy advice on a range of issues across all phases of mathematics education, from early years through to further and higher education. The expertise of the Outer Circle complements that of the seven committee members, providing ACME with a wide breadth of expertise. The support from the Outer Circle has certainly been invaluable during my time as Chair.

Involvement of Outer Circle members is flexible, with members commenting on drafts of consultation responses, sitting on sub-groups and helping with sessions at the Outer Circle event and Annual Conference. Some months there is lots to do and other months, it is more quiet. I would encourage anyone to apply who wants to make their mark on policy development in mathematics education to apply.

The closing date this year is Monday 27 October.

For more information, please see our webpage, or get in touch with the ACME Secretariat at

We look forward to receiving your application!

Professor Stephen Sparks CBE FRS is the Chair of ACME and a Professor of Geology at the University of Bristol.
