The NCETM is today announcing details of the next round of recruitment of primary schools to join the funded Teaching for Mastery Programme, run by Maths Hubs across England. This year, a total of 1700 primary schools are sought. Each Maths Hub is looking for around 50 schools, for a year-long programme of professional development, led by trained Mastery Specialists: school-based teachers who have already successfully developed teaching for mastery in their own schools, and who have been trained to support other schools in implementing the same approaches.
During the academic year starting in September this year, each school will belong to a Maths Hub Work Group, consisting of six or seven primary schools, and led by a Mastery Specialist from a nearby school. As well as receiving this free training, the recruited schools will receive a small grant towards paying for teachers to be released, and, in addition, they will be eligible to claim match-funding towards the cost of buying textbooks. They will follow in the footsteps of more than 800 schools who are receiving the same training this year
Information and details of how to apply to take part in this valuable collaborative school development opportunity can be found here. Schools must return applications to their local Maths Hub by 16 June 2017.
