For Secondary Schools

*NOW RECRUITING* Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics - Secondary non-specialist

This programme is designed to support non-specialist teachers teaching maths in secondary schools. It aims to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.

Who can take part?

The programme is for non-specialist teachers of maths in state-funded schools who fit the following definition:

A non-specialist teacher of mathematics is ‘a teacher that is currently teaching some mathematics who has not undertaken initial teacher training (ITT) in mathematics’.

If there is sufficient space in the cohort, other teachers of maths who do not fit this definition but would benefit from this support may also participate.

What will you learn?

Participants will:

  • explore and increase their use of a range of pedagogic approaches consistent with teaching for mastery
  • increase their confidence in planning for progression in maths
  • improve their subject and curriculum knowledge of secondary maths with a particular emphasis on mathematical structures in key areas.

We have produced a flyer which summarises the programme and its benefits. Download it to share with colleagues.

What is the cost?

The SKTM Secondary Non-specialists project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
