Event description
Designed to support non-specialist teachers teaching maths in a secondary school in developing specialist knowledge for teaching.

About this event

What is involved?

The programme is aligned to the NCETM teaching for mastery pedagogy and is based on six key themes:

• Structure of the number system

• Operating on number

• Multiplicative reasoning

• Sequences and graphs

• Statistics and probability

• Geometry.

Participants will explore these themes, supported by an experienced secondary practitioner.

Who can take part?

This programme is for non-specialist teachers of maths in state-funded schools who fit the following definition:

A non-specialist teacher of mathematics is ‘a teacher that is currently teaching some mathematics who has not undertaken initial teacher training (ITT) in mathematics’.

If there is sufficient space in the cohort, other teachers of maths who do not fit this definition but would benefit from this support may also participate.

What are the benefits?

Participants will:

 explore and increase their use of a range of pedagogic approaches consistent with teaching for mastery

 increase their confidence in planning for progression in maths

 improve their subject and curriculum knowledge of secondary maths with a particular emphasis on mathematical structures in key areas.

What is the cost?

The SKTM – Secondary Non-specialists project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

The wider context

Maths Hubs are well placed to provide training for non-specialist teachers of maths so that these teachers have the opportunity to increase their knowledge and understanding of the intentions of the maths national curriculum and develop their pedagogical skills. This programme is aligned with an overall Teaching for Mastery Programme designed to develop maths teaching in secondary schools.

Expectations of participants and their schools:

Schools must be able to commit to the full academic year’s programme. This involves three days of face-to-face support across the academic year, as well as classroom and school-based activity.

All participants must be based at schools within Enigma Maths Hubs region. To check your local hub, please check the following link:
