Secondary Mastery Specialists

Want to become a specialist in teaching for mastery and support your own and other schools to develop teaching for mastery approaches?

Join our team as a Secondary Mastery Specialist! During the programme you will receive fully funded professional development from experts, have time to develop your own expertise, and then to support others. 

What is involved?

Year One: you participate in several professional development events and focus on developing your own classroom teaching

Year Two: your focus is on developing teaching for mastery approaches within your own department and honing your skills in leading professional development

Year Three and beyond: you support key teachers in other local schools to develop a teaching for mastery approach within their own departments.

All the time, you keep in touch with other specialists across the country in online groups. You can share experiences and continue developmental conversations.


PD Lead Programme

To support you in developing your role as a leader of professional development you will be enrolled in the NCETM’s  PD Lead Development and Accreditation Programme during the second year of the Secondary Mastery Specialist Programme.

What is the cost?

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

Schools will receive funding to cover the Mastery Specialist's time out of school.
