Enhancing Subject Knowledge for Teaching Primary Mathematics for Early Career Teachers

This FREE work group is aimed at Teachers in primary schools who are in their first (NQTs) or second (RQTs) year of teaching who would benefit from:

  • Deepening their mathematics pedagogy through opportunities to observe and analyse effective teaching and learning;
  • Deepening their subject knowledge in key aspects of mathematics that underpin children’s mathematical learning;
  • Building confidence with planning, teaching and assessing effective sequences of lessons in mathematics that support children to make good progress.

It is anticipated that this will be a two year programme of which this is the first year.

The work group is designed to support the Early Careers Framework giving these teachers access to fully funded structured training and support linked to the best available research evidence with dedicated time to focus on their development.

During this work group participants will:

  • Deepen and extend their own subject knowledge in early number concepts and number sense;
  • Explore key structures of early number and number sense;
  • Understand children’s expected progression in the key structures of early number and number sense;
  • Know a range of ways to support children to develop an understanding of the key structures of early number and number sense;
  • Analyse lessons in order to reflect on effective teaching and learning in mathematics;
  • Design effective sequences of lessons in mathematics;
  • Reflect on the impact of effective sequences of teaching on children’s learning;
  • Undertake follow up work in school.

This is a national NCETM work group and therefore participants will be required to:

  • Keep a reflective journal that captures the impact of the work undertaken on the course and back in school;
  • Join and make regular contributions to an online community;
  • Complete online evaluations requested by the NCETM, including a summative impact report;
  • Undertake a range of gap tasks, both individually and with identified learners, to deepen their thinking about their learning of mathematics. It is asked that school leaders support and mentors their staff to complete this work. Mentors will be invited to join some sessions alongside the teachers;
  • Reflect on gap tasks within the online community, with colleagues at online sessions, and with colleagues and senior leaders in school.

Please give careful consideration to the work involved when selecting participants from your school onto this work group.

This year there are currently no face-to-face meetings planned. Most of the work group content will be delivered online within 6 taught sessions. To supplement this, participants will be required to complete a number of tasks in their own time.
