Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM)- Early Years Teachers
Develop mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy
Who can take part?
These programmes are designed for individuals who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to three- to five-year-olds. This may be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or have not received maths-specific training.
What is involved?
This programme is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of early maths.
There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathways: Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures and Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures. Each pathway is the equivalent of a four-day programme and has three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice. There is also a final core unit that aims to review quality provision.
- Your pupils will demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas
- You will review the mathematical learning opportunities and pedagogical approaches across your wider provision
- You will evaluate and enhance the opportunities to promote mathematical learning in all areas of provision
What is the cost?
The SKTM Early Years Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
*The London Central and West Maths Hub reserves the right to charge a £75 fee for non-attendance to the sessions or for cancellations to any of the sessions with less than 1 weeks’ notice.**
