Heard about teaching for mastery? Looking for ways to strengthen your students’ approach to the new GCSE? Wondering why your Y7s are stronger mathematicians this year?
During the 2019 spring term, the NCETM and Maths Hubs will be recruiting secondary schools to join a fully-funded professional development programme from September 2019. The programme is led by established Secondary Mastery Specialists, and will enable maths departments to introduce and embed a teaching for mastery approach. Watch our website and newsletters for more information.
Already successful in thousands of primary schools, teaching for mastery promotes deep mathematical understanding and creates confident mathematicians. The national programme is led by a growing number of local Mastery Specialists, classroom-based teachers trained by the NCETM and Maths Hubs, with experience of developing teaching for mastery approaches in their own school.
The video above gives an overview of the Mastery Specialists Programme and hears from some teachers involved in Work Groups.
