For Secondary Schools

Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics - Secondary Early Career Teachers

This project is designed to support secondary early career teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support students in maths in the classroom.

Who can take part?

This programme is designed for secondary early career teachers (those in their first or second year of teaching).

What is involved?

The Work Group sessions will explore the following themes:

  • Multiplicative reasoning
  • Negative numbers
  • Probability

Participants will work deeply on these area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design.

What will you learn?

Participants will:

  • plan and teach a carefully sequenced and coherent area of maths
  • appreciate the key ideas underpinning the area of maths being taught
  • understand key principles and approaches associated with teaching for mastery
  • understand approaches to assess students’ prior learning, so that learning sequences take this into account
  • make appropriate use of representations to expose the structure of the maths being taught.

What is the cost?

The SKTM Secondary Early Career Teachers Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
