EiML Case Studies: Gloucestershire LA

In September 2009 the Gloucestershire Maths Advisory Team chose to act on the identified fact that there were a significant number of relatively inexperienced mathematics subject leaders in the county. A network of eight subject leaders who had been in post for less than 18 months was established, and they met for the first time in October 2009. A session at that meeting was set aside for introducing and reviewing the ‘Excellence in Mathematics Leadership’ materials which had recently been produced by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics. These materials were well-received for their clear categorisation of priorities and supporting advice and resources. Each subject leader was encouraged to use them as a structure for moving their departments forward, with the offer of consultant support if it was considered desirable.  Following three universal subject leader network meetings that had been held throughout the school year, this smaller group met again In July 2010. The agenda on this occasion included a review of the past ten months and planning for the year ahead, but also provided the opportunity to review the impact of the EiML materials in their departments since the initial meeting.

What follows is a series of case studies from the participating subject leaders:
