Secondary Teaching Assistants
Develop mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy
What is involved?
This programme is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge of all TAs supporting learning of secondary maths.
Participants will focus on using precise mathematical language, representations, and reasoning within the topics; addition and subtraction; multiplication and division; ratio; and fractions. They will also carry out follow-up tasks in school to enable practice transfer to the classroom. The programme will take place over the equivalent of four days; participants must attend all sessions.
Who can take part?
This is for teaching assistants who work predominantly with students in the KS3 maths classroom or who lead intervention sessions with groups of students. Participants' schools should already be engaged with a Teaching for Mastery Work Group, and this programme will complement this provision.
What is the cost?
The programme is fully funded by Central Maths Hub so is free to participating schools.
