Early Years Teachers Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics 2023-24

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it.

This programme is designed to improve the subject and pedagogical knowledge for all practitioners teaching and supporting the learning of early maths. This may be particularly relevant for teachers that have moved phases or have not received maths-specific training.

There are two types of SKTM Early Years pathways: Pathway One: Number Patterns and Structures and Pathway Two: Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures. Each pathway is the equivalent of a four-day programme and has three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice. There is also a final core unit that aims to review quality provision.

These Work Groups will start in the second 1/2 of the autumn term of 2023-23. Dates and locations of each Work Group will be shared at the start of the autumn term.
