Primary Mastery Readiness Programme 


In the last three years, the NCETM and Maths Hubs have trained hundreds of primary teachers as Mastery Specialists, and thousands of schools have been helped by these specialists to start introducing mastery approaches in their maths lessons. This is called the Teaching for Mastery programme and it is set to continue for several more years.

But not all schools, for a variety of reasons, are ready to take that big step into a formal development programme in one leap. That is why there is now a Mastery Readiness Programme: a programme of training and bespoke support, which aims to provide a stepping stone to take school, after a year, into the ‘main’ Teaching for Mastery Programme.

There is no charge to schools participating in the programme. To read more about the programme, please download the brochure below:
