Heard about teaching for mastery? Looking for ways to strengthen your students’ approach to the new GCSE? Wondering why your Y7s are stronger mathematicians this year?
The NCETM and Maths Hubs are recruiting secondary schools to join a fully-funded professional development programme, led by established Secondary 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. The national programme is led by a growing number of local Mastery Specialists, classroom-based teachers trained by the NCETM and Maths Hubs, with experience of developing teaching for mastery approaches in their own school.
Schools applying will nominate two teachers to lead their own department’s development, with bespoke support from a Mastery Specialist. The teachers will join a local Work Group for collaborative CPD sessions, facilitated by the Mastery Specialist. The programme is year-long, but teaching for mastery developments are designed for long-term change, bringing improved mathematical understanding to a whole generation of students.
