Primary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups Information and Application (2018-20)
In 2018-19, all Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups led by Mastery Specialists. This programme is for schools who have a commitment to developing a teaching for mastery approach. Although the participation involves two teachers attending events outside of the school it is expected that these two teachers lead development across the whole school. Each Maths Hub is now seeking to recruit schools for Work Groups, each involving six or seven schools. This document gives information about the Work Groups and how schools can apply to be involved. The closing date for application is Monday 4th June 2018, 12pm.
Developing the Leadership Capacity for Early Years Mathematics – setting working with a PD Lead
Beginning in summer term 2018, the ten most northerly Maths Hubs (those operating in the Northern Powerhouse) will be providing training and bespoke support for settings in priority areas in their region to support leadership teams with reviewing, analyzing and developing their provision for mathematics. The programme Beginning in the summer Term 2018 and continuing to summer 2019, each hub will accept settings to engage in the following activities. Activity will include: • Leaders meet with an Early Years PD lead to identify priorities for their mathematics provision • PD leads with setting-based leaders will develop a progamme to support the leadership capacity in their specific setting • Leaders will access specific support sessions either individually or as part of a cluster that supports them with priority actions (and identify specific practitioners that may benefit from the content of specific sessions)
Secondary Teaching for Mastery Work Groups (2018/19)
The NCETM and Maths Hubs are recruiting secondary schools to join a free professional development programme, led by established Mastery Specialists, from September 2018. The programme will enable school mathematics departments to introduce and embed a teaching for mastery approach. Already successful in thousands of primary schools, teaching for mastery promotes deep mathematical understanding and creates confident mathematicians.There is no charge to participating schools to participate in this Work Group, which is funded by the Maths Hub. In addition, each participating school will receive £2000 to help pay for the Mastery Advocates’ release time and for work within the maths department.
