Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Early Years and Special School Teachers – Apply Now >

This project is for Early Years teachers (and special school teachers) who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to Reception pupils. It may be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or have not received maths-specific training.

This programme is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of early maths.

What will you learn?

  • Your pupils will demonstrate a positive attitude towards maths, being willing to have a go, persevere, and share their mathematical ideas
  • You will explore and increase your use of a range of pedagogic approaches that will support pupils in engaging with and developing their maths
  • You will understand how maths opportunities can be developed across all areas and in everyday routines

What is the cost?

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