The NCETM and Maths Hubs are now accepting applications for five programmes designed to develop teachers as experts in teaching for mastery and the leadership of professional development. The programmes are:
- Primary Mastery Specialist
- Secondary Mastery Specialist
- Further Education Mastery Specialist
- Professional Development Lead
- School Development Lead.
What do the programmes involve?
All the programmes are designed to develop teachers as local leaders of mathematics education (LLME), who lead various strands of activity of their Maths Hub at a local level.
The Primary Mastery Specialist Programme is now in its ninth year, and the Secondary Mastery Specialist Programme is in its eighth year. The programme to develop Further Education Mastery Specialists is new in 2023; more information about it is available in our recent news item, Mastery Specialists in GCSE Resit and Functional Skills. All Mastery Specialists are classroom-based practitioners who develop teaching for mastery in their own classrooms, and go on to lead Work Groups to support other schools or colleges and their teachers locally.
Professional Development Leads and School Development Leads are expert teachers of maths who have responsibility for maths-specific professional development beyond their own school.
