Secondary Teaching for Mastery – Development
Heard about teaching for mastery? Interested in high quality professional development?
Professional development to enable you to introduce teaching for mastery across your maths department.
Here is a picture which details the pathway a school may take whilst working with the Maths Hub:
What is involved?
Secondary maths teachers whose schools want to introduce teaching for mastery can nominate two teachers (‘Mastery Advocates’) to join a Work Group. Mastery Advocates then form part of a locally-based group of teachers who meet regularly to develop professional knowledge and expertise, and receive bespoke support.
In a Teaching for Mastery Work Group, teachers collaborate with colleagues from local schools, and get support and guidance from a Local Leader of Maths Education (LLME). Participants also take away ideas to help students become more confident mathematicians, ready to tackle GCSEs and A levels, and begin to introduce and embed teaching for mastery.
Who can take part?
This programme is for state-funded secondary schools in England 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.
- Your students will develop a deep, secure and connected understanding of the maths they are learning
- You will begin to develop teaching for mastery approaches within your own classroom
- You and your head of department will begin to develop an understanding of practices and principles aligned to secondary teaching for mastery
- You will begin to support the teachers in your department to develop teaching for mastery approaches in their practice
What is the cost?
The Secondary Teaching for Mastery – Development project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
