Become a Mastery Advocate

The first year of the Secondary Teaching for Mastery programme aims to support you in developing the principles of Teaching for Mastery in your department. You and another teacher from your school act as ‘Mastery Advocates’. Supported by a Secondary Mastery Specialist (trained expert teacher from a local school), you will work in your own classroom and across your department to develop a bespoke programme of professional development suitable to your needs. You will also form part of a locally-based group of teachers who meet regularly to develop professional knowledge and expertise, and receive bespoke support.

In subsequent years, you will continue to work with the Hub to embed and sustain Teaching for Mastery in your department.

The project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Mastery Advocates should be teachers with the commitment, experience and authority to lead developmental work across a maths department. The support of the head of maths, and the headteacher or a member of SLT, is also essential.
