This free 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 students in maths in the classroom.

Who is this for? 
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 are the benefits?
Participants will:

  • 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.

When will the workshops take place?

In order to decrease the time needed away from the classroom, delivery will be via a mixture of daytime and twilight sessions. The daytime sessions are planned for the 21st and 22nd of April (9:30-14:45) and twilight sessions will be held throughout May, June and July (4:15-5:30).
