Teacher Subject Specialism Training in Maths

We have a few places remaining on our Maths Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) programme!

Now in it’s third year, the programme provides free, high quality Professional Development, along with funding towards cover and travel costs.

The course is aimed at Secondary & FE teachers in numerate disciplines who are intending to teach some maths or return to teach maths and would like to refresh their subject knowledge.

The aim of the programme is to:

  • Enhance your mathematical knowledge to give you confidence to teach Maths
  • Inspire your enthusiasm for Maths
  • Provide you with motivating activities and tasks for teaching Maths
  • Enhance your pedagogical skills in teaching Maths

The course will involve:

An introductory meeting at Harrogate Grammar School on Wednesday 27th September, 4:00 – 6:00.

Ten twilight face to face 2.5 hour workshops at Harrogate Grammar School, on the following areas:

  • Data analysis & statistics
  • Number Theory
  • Measurement

An e- learning and online assessment facility from the CIMT at Plymouth University will run alongside all topics. This will also provide certification for subject knowledge with the award of “Certificate Of Mathematical Mastery ” at three levels (distinction, merit, pass).

Participants will also have access to a 30-credit masters module “Teaching and Learning Mathematics through Problem Solving”. This module will be an added extra and not assessed.

Each participating teacher will have a mentor to support them through the programme. These mentors will be effective maths teachers with experience of supporting maths colleagues. the mentors are expected to conduct three joint lesson observations.

At the end of the training participants will be asked to do a short presentation on their learning journey to the rest of the group with the main aim of sharing good practice across the group.

Funding – A £450 bursary will be paid to the participants school on successful completion of the programme. The school will also receive £400 for in-school mentoring.
