Godfrey Almeida

Federation Mathematics Consultant and Lead Practitioner: Mathematics Course Lead

When will you see Godfrey?

As a Mathematics trainee teacher, Godfrey will be at each specialist Mathematics training day and as a visiting observer in some of your lessons. Godfrey delivers training sessions to Initial Teacher Education (ITE) students, NQTs and experienced staff members, from subject-specific courses to generic teacher training. He also works across several academies in conjunction with School Leadership Teams (SLT) and subject Coordinators, to improve teaching and learning and student outcomes within the Mathematics department.


Godfrey began teaching at Ashmole Academy in North London as an NQT. He moved through the ranks and became an Advanced Skills teacher where he was responsible for improving teaching and learning across the school, as well as taking charge of KS4 Maths. He has worked as a Federation consultant since 2013. Godfrey has successfully mentored NQTs and Teach First students across the Federation in Maths, and seen them develop into key stage managers, improving their own teaching and passing on their training to other members of their department. Godfrey is also a National Centre for the Excellence of Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) Professional Development Accredited Lead for both Secondary and A level Mathematics, as well as a Specialist Leader in Education.

Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.
