Subject Knowledge for Early Years Practitioners

Who can take part?

The programme is designed for individuals who would like to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths to three to five years olds. This may be particularly relevant for NQTs, teachers that have moved phases or teachers that have not received maths-specific training.

There are two pathways for this programme:

One programme will focus on Number Patterns and Structures and the other will focus on Pattern, Shape, Space and Measures.

Both programmes have three core elements, three associated pedagogy sessions, and a task to support the transition from theory to practice.

What will you learn?

Participants and their schools will:

  • develop enhanced maths subject knowledge with a particular emphasis on developmental progression in the Early Years to ensure sequences of learning are cohesive
  • consider the learning opportunities and pedagogical approaches across the wider provision – reviewing and enhancing the opportunities to promote mathematical learning across the provision.

What is the cost?

The Early Years Subject Knowledge Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
