Subject Knowledge – Secondary Early Career Teachers
This project is designed to support secondary early career teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
This Work Group will explore:
Designing effective learning and teaching in maths (geometry).
We feel this area of Maths is crucial and teaching this in depth. If a more solid foundation of this is built, it will have far reaching implications for geometric reasoning for children.
Participants will work deeply on this area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.
Who can take part?
This programme is designed for secondary early career teachers (those teaching in their first or second year).

What are the benefits?
plan and teach a carefully sequenced and coherent area of maths
appreciate the key ideas underpinning the area of maths being taught
understand key principles and approaches associated with teaching for mastery
understand approaches to assess students’ prior learning, so that learning sequences take this into account
make appropriate use of representations to expose the structure of the maths being taught.
What is the cost?
The SKTM – Secondary Early Career Teachers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
