Information for school leaders about free professional development

The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) and Maths Hubs provide free maths-specific professional development for teachers and teaching assistants in all phases from Early Years to post-16. There are 40 Maths Hubs across England, serving all state-funded primary and secondary schools. If you are not yet working with your local Maths Hub, find out which hub it is. A Maths Hub’s work takes place across the whole of the region it serves; local Work Groups and other CPD opportunities are available in a wide variety of settings and locations, not simply at the Lead School.

Why engage with your local Maths Hub?

If a teacher or TA in your school takes part in professional development through your local Maths Hub in the form of a network collaborative project, they will benefit from:

  • Ongoing CPD which they can implement in the classroom; not just a ‘one-off’ course
  • Expert input and guidance
  • Peer-to-peer support and learning
  • Funding to cover the cost of supply when they are taking part in their face-to-face Work Group activities
  • Access to a wide range of high-quality online resources
  • Being part of a national programme exploring a current issue in maths teaching
