Teaching for Mastery 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 Work Group is designed to support new or existing leaders of mathematics in mainstream schools and those who develop maths across a trust. It will explore the roles of a maths lead who is implementing TfM approaches and offer support in how to manage these various responsibilities.
✔ Improve understanding of the five big ideas, considering their own context and students.
✔ Engage in research evidence including TfM Evidence, early learning maths evidence, EEF maths guidance, findings from participants engaged in the TfM main programme and specialists from special school provision.
✔ Make changes in school policies and curriculum to include the 5 big ideas in the teaching and learning of mathematics.
✔ Develop as a leader of mathematics and have a greater understanding of some of the roles and responsibilities a maths leader has to undertake.
✔ Have access to a network of other leaders to support them in their role as leader of mathematics.
Have support in strategies and approaches to developing TfM across schools within a trust
Who is this for?
For teachers across Early Years, KS1 and KS2. Suitable for new and established maths leads who are developing mastery approaches within their school and for those who are leading maths across a trust (this programme is likely to be more suitable for mainstream schools/academies). SLT welcome.
This is a ‘research and innovation’ Work Group enabling participants to develop in their role as a leader of mathematics either within a school or across a trust. We will work together on the skills and attributes a leader of maths might find useful and link this to implementing maths mastery across a school/trust.
Central workshops will focus on:
Expectations of participants and their schools
Schools must be able to commit to the full academic year’s programme, with senior leadership releasing the same nominated teacher(s) to attend ALL workshops, as well as school-based activity:
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.
