London Central and West are hugely proud of their Local Leaders of Maths Education (LLME), which has been growing steadily over the past 6 years. People in the LLME are leaders of Maths Hub work in their local areas and lead their Work Groups from their own schools or in the local schools that they work with. They are well supported by the NCETM, Maths Hub Leadership team and each other. We all come together to learn and offer support so the professional development that is delivered is to a very high standard.
See here for a full list of 2020-21 LLME where you can see what Work Groups they are running and from what school.

Who can take part?
The members of any Maths Hub LLME (Local Leaders of Maths Education) Community are the Maths Hub Leads, Assistant Maths Hub Leads, Mastery Specialists and Work Group Leads who support the work of the hub. These professionals could have other roles such as SLEs or PD Leads, but they will be working directly with the hub in the roles outlined. Individual Maths Hubs may have a clear rationale for inviting further participants, but these will be limited in numbers and related to the growth of the community.
What is involved?
Participants will attend several LLME gatherings, spread across the academic year and equating to three days of time. These will be planned in line with the five design principles below and have content balanced between community, leadership and maths knowledge for teaching.
Establish, develop and revisit a common meaning and purpose
Explicitly plan for professional growth
Model and expect high levels of professionalism
Design for push and pull
Develop collective and collaborative leadership
What will you learn?
You will have opportunities to connect with your community of local leaders of maths education, build wider professional relationships and:
Improve your knowledge and understanding of the expectations in effectively planning, delivering and evaluating a Work Group
Have opportunities to constructively challenge your thinking and develop new ideas
Learn skills relevant to your role as a leader and provider of professional development
Share and further develop your knowledge of maths for teaching
Consider how to incorporate new professional learning into your leadership practice.
What is the cost?
The LLME Communities project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participants and their schools. Funding covers provision for the equivalent of three days.
