For Primary Schools

Subject Knowledge Programme for Teaching Assistants

This four day programme is designed to support teaching assistants (TAs) in developing 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 designed for TAs who are supporting maths, and who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths. This may be particularly relevant for new TAs or TAs that have not received maths-specific training.

What is involved?

The programme is based on four core primary modules:

  • Number sense
  • Additive reasoning
  • Multiplicative reasoning
  • Fractions.

What will you learn?

Participants and their schools will:

  • enhance their maths subject knowledge with an emphasis on the key structures in each mathematical area covered
  • understand the key elements that form number sense, forms of addition and subtraction, forms of multiplication and division, and forms of fractions, including precise language, structures and representations
  • review their practice as a result of the sessions and make specific adaptations to impact on pupil outcomes.

What is the cost?

The Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

How can I get involved?

This programme is fully booked for this year – if you would like to express an interest in taking part next year please get in touch.
