Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Primary Teachers APPLY NOW

This project is designed to support primary teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.  There are two primary programmes to choose from: Number Pathway and Spatial Reasoning. 

Who can take part?

These two programmes are designed for teachers who would like to further develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. They will be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training. The Spatial Reasoning option maybe of particular interest to those who have participated, in previous years, in the Multiplicative reasoning SKTM programme.

What is involved?

The model for these programmes is four PD days with in-school work between these days plus a short introductory session. Schools are encouraged to engage at least two participants in a group, where possible, in order to maximise learning and impact. The plan is for the programme to run fully online to allow access across the hub region; (if applicants are in the same area we may look to move to face to face).

What will you learn?

Participants will be supported to:

  • Make careful considered changes to her practice.
  • Observe and analyse the impact of these changes on learners (in particular, focus learners)
  • reflect on the implications.
  • Share thinking and findings.
What is the cost?

The SKTM Primary Teachers Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating state schools.
