Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Early Years

This work group commenced during the 2019/20 academic year and now we are pleased to announce another opportunity to take part in this Work Group during 2021/22.

This project is designed to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.

What will you learn? 

Participants will:

  • develop enhanced maths subject knowledge with a particular emphasis on developmental progression in the Early Years to ensure sequences of learning are cohesive
  • consider the learning opportunities and pedagogical approaches across the wider provision – reviewing and enhancing the opportunities to promote mathematical learning across the provision.

What is involved?

The model for this programme is four face to face PD days with in-school work between these days plus a short online introductory session. Schools are encouraged to engage at least two participants in a group, where possible, in order to maximise learning and impact. We plan to offer this programme in at least two locations accessible for those applying.

What is the cost?

The SKTM Early Years Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
