This project is designed to support primary teaching assistants 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?
This programme is designed for primary teaching assistants who are supporting maths, and who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. It will be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training.
The programme will focus on the following mathematical areas:
These modules are each designed to last two to three hours, but may last longer if delivered online. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.
What you will learn?
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.
