The NCETM Professional Development Lead Programme 2023/24

The recruitment window for 2023/24 has now closed.

What is involved?

The PD Lead Programme is designed for participants who are working with other teachers to enhance teaching and learning of maths.

Participants benefit from the equivalent of three one-day workshops (face-to-face and online). The completion of an Accreditation Evidence Document, which facilitates critical reflection on participants’ learning and the professional development they design, deliver and evaluate over the year, is also required. Participants will design, lead, review and refine a programme of support for maths teacher professional development, drawing upon a range of evidence-informed models and activity.

The Professional Development Lead Programmes are fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so are free to participants and their schools.

Who can take part?

These programmes are for expert teachers of maths (all phases from Early Years to post-16) who have existing commitments and responsibility for designing, leading and evaluating maths teacher professional development, and who will lead maths professional development beyond their own institution.

What will you learn?

  • You will develop an understanding of effective models of maths teacher professional development
  • You will critically evaluate your own professional development programme against your intended outcomes
  • You will develop an understanding of the full range of potential outcomes of maths teacher professional development
  • Participants in the programme you design will report a change in their subject knowledge/professional practice

Participants will also have the opportunity to pay to work with the University of Chester and gain an academic award (PG Cert) for completing an enhanced version of the programme.
