School Development Lead Programme

The recruitment window for 2023/24 is now closed. 

This project aims to support mathematics leads whose role is to lead change in a school or group of schools other than their own.

Who can take part?

The programme is for teachers leading change in a school or group of schools other than their own, and will benefit those who have previous experience of developing leadership capacity in schools/groups of schools or who are new to the role. Normally, participants will have previously completed the NCETM PD Lead Programme. Participants will be expected to commit to the full programme of activities and will need the support of the headteacher of their own school and/or their MAT.

What is involved?

This programme is specifically designed to enable the leaders of maths school development to enhance leadership capacity and capability in the schools they support. It will provide regional support through workshops (face-to-face run regionally across England, and online), practice development activities, and an online community.

Participants will plan, lead and evaluate a school development initiative for a school or group of schools and record all planning, evaluation and reflection in an Accreditation Evidence Document.

What will you learn?

Participants will:

  • You will develop your knowledge of a range of maths school development strategies and know why, when, and how to use them effectively.
  • You will strengthen your knowledge of the evidence base that underpins school development and change management
  • You will design and lead maths development in schools, which is supported by learning and discussion in the programme
  • You will increase your awareness of the skills needed by a maths school development lead and have a deeper self-awareness in relation to the role

What is the cost?

The School Development Lead Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participants and their schools.
