FREE Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics programme for Secondary Non-Specialist Teachers

About this event

This FREE programme is designed to support non-specialist secondary school teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics. This is ideal for any non-specialist teachers who are looking to teach Maths as a new/additional subject in the 22/23 academic year or who are currently teaching Maths but did not specialise at ITT and wish to develop their knowledge.

The programme has been designed with 4 full days taking place after the exam period in Summer term, to cover the core pedagogical themes in advance of the new academic year. This is followed by online twilights during Autumn term and finally, bespoke support from your Work Group lead provided in Spring 2023.

Aligned to the NCETM's teaching for mastery programme, the key themes covered by the programme are:

  • Structure of the number system
