PRIMARY - EARLY YEARS TEACHERS
Specialist Knowledge for the Teaching of Mathematics (SKTM)
Apply now and register your place. Dates, times and further details coming soon....
This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
Who can take part?
These programmes are designed for individuals who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to three to five years olds. This may be particularly relevant for NQTs, teachers that have moved phases, or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.
There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathways:
Each pathway has three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice. There is also a final core unit that aims to review quality provision. The intention is that each pathway is the equivalent of a four-day programme.

What is the cost?
FREE - the project is fully funded
by Central Maths Hub so is free to
participating schools in Birmingham, Dudley and Sandwell.
The Central Maths Hub, coordinated by the NCETM and part of the National Maths Hubs network works in partnership with local schools, colleges, Universities, CPD providers, maths experts and employers to drive improvement in maths education. This is facilitated through funded professional development opportunities and national collaborative projects known as Work Groups, which meet the DfE standards for teacher development.
If you are involved in maths education in the areas of Birmingham, Sandwell or Dudley, then you are already part of our hub.
Details of our projects and Work Groups can be found on this site. If you would like to be the first to hear what is happening in the hub, sign up to our newsletter and follow us on Twitter (@centralmathshub). If you have any questions or would like further information about any of our projects of Work Groups, please do reach out.
