Leadership and Career Development
Secondary Subject Leadership
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.
This new project offers focused support to secondary heads of department/subject leaders, to enable them to better understand and implement teaching for mastery approaches across their department, and to develop in their role as leaders of both student learning and teacher professional development.
It provides an opportunity for participants to deepen their understanding of teaching for mastery approaches, of their wider roles, and of their capacity with their colleagues to transform secondary maths learning.
Who can take part?
The project is for secondary heads of department/subject leaders, and is open to heads of department in schools already involved with Maths Hubs and to those who are not yet involved. (Prospective HoDs/subject leaders are not eligible to participate.)
Local Work Group design will follow a workshop – school-based task cycle, consisting of several workshops followed in each case by school-based tasks planned to take account of the specific contexts of the subject leaders. Participants will support each other through the sharing of strategies and practice within the context of a vibrant professional learning community.
Much of the work will involve each individual department working on elements of their action plan and developing collaborative ways of working which support their continuing professional development. In addition, it will be important for all Work Group participants to benefit from the expertise and experiences of the group of departments represented.
This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.
What will you 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.
