Primary Mastery Readiness Programme
Since 2014, the NCETM/Maths Hub Teaching for Mastery Programme has trained hundreds of primary teachers as Mastery Specialists. Thousands of schools have been helped by these specialists to start introducing mastery approaches in their maths lessons. The programme is set to continue for several more years. But not all schools, for a variety of reasons, are able to move into a formal development programme in one leap. That is why the Mastery Readiness Programme has been developed: collaborative training and bespoke support, available in 202021, which aims to provide a stepping stone to take schools into the ‘main’ Teaching for Mastery Programme in 2021/22
Primary Development Work Group Programme
Since 2014, The NCETM and Maths Hubs have been working together to develop approaches to teaching for mastery within primary mathematics. This has been partly informed by the teaching of mathematics in high performing South East Asian jurisdictions. In the last three years the NCETM and Maths Hubs recruited teachers to participate in a Mastery Specialists development programme. Once trained, Mastery Specialists work with other schools in teaching for mastery work group(s). Each Work Group will be led by one of the Maths Hub’s Mastery Specialists and involve six or seven primary schools
Teaching Assistants Subject Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics
This project is designed to support teaching assistants (TAs) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
