For both Primary & Secondary Schools

Training & Professional Development

During 2020/2021, the NCETM and Maths Hubs will be running fully funded training programmes for teachers to become local leaders of mathematics education (LLME).

Expressions of interest are now being taken for the following:

  • NCETM-accredited Professional Development Leads: a year-long, maths and phase-specific developmental programme, leading to deployment as a Work Group Lead in a range of Maths Hubs projects.
  • Existing┬áSpecialist Leaders of Education (SLE): This programme aims to support existing mathematics SLEs in developing their approaches to maths school improvement work, including drawing on the expertise of approaches used in the Maths Hubs Programme such as teaching for mastery.

The NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programme

NCETM Professional Development Lead Accreditation is designed for those who lead professional development for teachers of mathematics. There is a choice from five possible pathways to accreditation depending on the phases of the teachers with whom PD Leads work: Early Years, primary, secondary, Advanced Level, and Core Maths.

NCETM Accredited PD Lead status is gained by successfully completing a development and accreditation training programme which involves face-to-face sessions, together with independent and school-based gap tasks, leading to accreditation by the NCETM. Once accredited, there is an ongoing re-registration process and there is also support for PD Leads to maintain accreditation.

SLE Development Programme

This project aims to support primary and secondary mathematics Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) in developing their approaches to maths school improvement work. It will provide a regional support programme for participants through three workshops and an online community.

The SLE programme is part of a strategy to support the development of local leaders of maths education (LLME) across the Maths Hubs Network. It is specifically designed to enable SLEs in their role to develop leadership capacity and capability in the schools they support.
