These interactive, engaging and fully funded Work Groups offer bespoke, easy to implement CPD to enhance your teaching.

We will look at developing your approaches within the classroom, and your department, to promote a deeper and sustained understanding for all pupils.

FREE, BESPOKE SUPPORT TO HELP YOU INTRODUCE MASTERY APPROACHES TO TEACHING MATHS IN YOUR SCHOOL

These interactive, engaging and fully funded Work Groups offer bespoke, easy to implement CPD to enhance your teaching. We will look at developing your approaches within the classroom, and your department, to promote a deeper and sustained understanding for all pupils.  You will be part of a locally-based group of teachers who meet regularly to develop professional knowledge and expertise, as well as receiving support. Two teachers or leaders from your mathematics department, called ‘Mastery Advocates’, lead your school’s involvement in the Work Group. 
 
In a Teaching for Mastery Work Group you will:
collaborate with colleagues from other local schools to share best practice
get individual school support and guidance from a Secondary Teaching Mathematics for Mastery Specialist
take away ideas to help your students become more confident mathematicians, ready to tackle GCSEs and A levels
introduce and embed teaching for mastery in your classroom and department

What is the cost?

These work Groups are fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so are free to participating schools. 


Each department will receive £2000 grant to enable the Mastery Advocates to work with the Secondary Mastery Specialist and thus enable them to work within their own department.

“I will be trying more problems where students have a bit more freedom with where they want to take a problem and look at how I can do that whilst supporting those who like a lot of structure. It will tie in well to looking at what makes a good mathematician and how it is not about ‘getting the right answer.

We will be sharing the ideas from the course as a whole with department once we have implemented the various ideas and seen what works well for us.”

Development Participant 

Who can take part?

This opportunity is suitable for secondary mathematics teachers, experience and authority to lead developmental work across the department. It requires the support of your headteacher or a member of SLT. Each school will receive a termly support visit from the Mastery Specialist to observe teaching, support in-school work groups, and work with the lead teachers and headteacher in developing an action plan for the school.
