For Secondary Schools & Post 16
Secondary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups
Teaching for Mastery Work Groups are available for Secondary schools looking to introduce or embed mastery approach in their maths department. Nationally trained Secondary Mastery Specialists will work with groups of schools to help them develop a mastery approach, as well as providing bespoke in-school support.
Two teachers from a school will become ‘Mastery Advocates’ within their own departments . They will work closely with a Secondary Mastery Specialist to understand the principles and practices associated with teaching for mastery and will begin to work in their own classrooms and then with teachers within their own departments to embed these principles and practices with the support of the specialist. Work will initially begin in Key Stage 3, but it is intended that this will extend to Key Stage 4, certainly in the longer term.
There is no fee or charge to participating schools to participate in this Work Group. The Maths Hub meets the cost of running the Work Group. Each department will receive £2000 to enable the Mastery Advocates to work with the Secondary Mastery Specialist and thus enable them to work within their own department.
The next round of applications for this programme will open in Spring 2020.
If you would like to express an interest, please get in touch and we will send you further information and an application form when they are available.
