Supporting Maths Development for Early Career Teachers
Online Work Group
Support with mathematical subject knowledge and mastery pedagogy.
Waiting list only
It is of no doubt that teaching is a rewarding career but at times it can be challenging. This has been especially true recently due to the unavoidable disruptions that schools have faced over the past year. Early career teachers may have found it difficult to keep up, as their training and CPD has undoubtedly been affected by the recent pandemic.
This Work Group aims to support early career teachers with their mathematical subject knowledge and mastery pedagogy and will provide an opportunity to work collaboratively over the year. It will provide much CPD that was missed during lockdown for RQTs and reassure and support NQTs who will not have been able to do pre-visits to school or finish their initial teacher training.
The Work Group will be adapted over the year to meet the needs of the participants but will look to include the following:
