Working partnerships with ITT Providers

This project provides a community which enables ITT providers to work together to develop their specialist knowledge for teaching maths provision, with a focus on teaching for mastery.

During 24/25, the group will focus on strengthening  the understanding of teaching for mastery pedagogy.

Who can take part?

Participants in this community will be from the ITT sector; they should be directly involved in ITT with a responsibility for maths. It is expected that these participants will represent the various ITT providers across the hub region so may include HEI, SCITT and School Direct, and represent different phases of ITT including EYTS, QTS (primary and secondary), and post-16.

What is involved?

Activity will be in the form of Work Groups, open classrooms and conferences.  It may include working across hub boundaries and collaborating in larger regions. Activity may include:

  • Local network meetings leading to partnership work focusing on key issues for the group .
  • Local network meetings that review the principles of teaching for mastery
  • Working with those delivering maths provision to observe lessons with Mastery Specialists to then review implications for provision
  • Developing the subject specific expertise of mentors to support trainees in mastery-related maths lesson design.

What will you learn?

Participants and their institutions will:

  • deepen understanding of, and involvement in, the work of their local Maths Hub and the Maths Hubs Network, along with their knowledge of the principles of teaching for mastery and how they relate to classroom practice
  • review practices and programmes, aiming to ensure trainees have some understanding of lesson design informed by mastery principles
  • develop planning which includes reference to the principles of teaching for mastery and is further enhanced by opportunities to observe Mastery Specialists’ lessons with a follow up discussion.

What is the cost?

The Working Partnerships with ITT Providers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating institutions.
