Specialist Knowledge for the Teaching of Mathematics (Secondary Non-specialist Teachers) Communities Work Group 2021 - 2022
This project is designed to support non-specialist teachers teaching maths in a secondary school 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 for non-specialist teachers of maths in state-funded schools who fit the following definition:
A non-specialist teacher of mathematics is ‘a teacher that is currently teaching some mathematics who has not undertaken initial teacher training (ITT) in mathematics’.
If there is sufficient space in the cohort, other teachers of maths who do not fit this definition but would benefit from this support may also participate.
What is involved?
The programme is aligned to the NCETM teaching for mastery pedagogy and is based on six key themes:
Structure of the number system
Operating on number
Sequences and graphs
Statistics and probability
Participants will explore these themes, supported by an experienced secondary practitioner.
What will you learn?
explore and increase their use of a range of pedagogic approaches consistent with teaching for mastery
increase their confidence in planning for progression in maths
improve their subject and curriculum knowledge of secondary maths with a particular emphasis on mathematical structures in key areas.
DATES AND LOCATION
For 2021/22 these are to be confirmed.
The Work Group is offered free to all state-funded secondary schools in England.
By signing up there is an expectation that you attend all sessions for the full length unless there is an emergency.
The ongoing impact of the corona virus outbreak and knock on effects on schools life remain uncertain. So, all Maths Hubs work will adapt to changing realities. There's likely to be more live online collaboration, for example. In addition Work Groups content will address both schools recovery from corona virus related disruption and the central maths subject matter of each project.
