Professional Development Lead Programme

NCETM Professional Development Lead Accreditation is designed for those who lead professional development for teachers of mathematics. There is a choice from five possible pathways to accreditation depending on the phases of the teachers with whom PD leads work: Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Advanced Level, and Core Maths.

NCETM Accredited PD Lead status is gained by successfully completing a development and accreditation training programme (PDLDA) which involves face-to-face sessions, together with independent and school-based gap tasks, leading to accreditation by the NCETM. Once accredited, there is an ongoing re-registration process and there is also support for PD Leads to maintain accreditation.
