Secondary Work Groups

Secondary Mastery Development

In 2020/21 all Maths Hubs are participating in a Network Collaborative Project addressing secondary mathematics teaching for mastery. As part of this project, Secondary Mastery Specialists in each hub area will be offering support to schools interested in developing teaching for mastery approaches in their mathematics departments. Each specialist who has completed the second year of their support and development programme will work with two departments.

Please see the information and application document for more information. Schools interested in applying to be part of a Work Group in 2020/21 should complete the online Expression of Interest form by Friday 3rd July 2020.

Secondary Mastery Specialist-Extended Deadline!

The NCETM are now seeking applications from secondary schools that wish to nominate ‘lead teachers’ to take part in an important three-year professional development programme leading to the designation of Secondary Mastery Specialist. Schools nominating teachers for this role would be committed to the development of teaching for mastery in the lead teacher’s classroom, across their maths department and, later on, to facilitate and support the development of teaching for mastery in a small number of other interested secondary schools within their Maths Hub area.

Please see the information document for full details. Teachers should complete the application form by 5pm on Monday 1st June.

Mathematical Thinking for GCSE

DEADLINE CLOSED. Please contact Jo Brereton at mathshubs@painsley.staffs.sch.uk to express an interest in this Work Group.

Teachers or departments keen to address the reasoning and problem-solving challenges of the mathematics curriculum and its assessment at GCSE are encouraged to take part in this project. Work Groups will explore professional development activities, focusing on practical and accessible classroom-based approaches. The activities themselves also offer a model for wider departmental engagement with professional development processes, and hence could provide the basis of an effective departmental improvement programme in this area.

 

Previous participants have suggested that this work group has ‘transformed their teaching’ as well as ‘developing their confidence’ for delivering CPD. Please see our flyer for more information and book here.

 

Teaching Assistant Programme-

Supporting Maths in Secondary Schools

DEADLINE CLOSED. Please contact Jo Brereton at mathshubs@painsley.staffs.sch.uk to express an interest in this Work Group.

Fully funded by the North Mids Maths Hub, this free programme will develop the confidence and skills of TAs in supporting maths in the secondary and middle school classroom, as well as with intervention activities.

The programme of 3 sessions explores pedagogy in maths for TAs, using a range of techniques, manipulatives and the maths TA toolkit. TA’s will have gap tasks to implement in their own school and upon completion, receive certification from the Maths Hub and National Teaching School.

Two cohorts are being offered, one at Discovery Academy, Stoke On Trent and the other at St Thomas More Catholic, Willenhall.

Early booking is highly recommended for this Autumn Term programme. Please register using the links on the flyer above.

Challenging Topics at GCSE

DEADLINE CLOSED. Please contact Jo Brereton at mathshubs@painsley.staffs.sch.uk to express an interest in this Work Group.

The Work Group will explore a single GCSE topic in depth. Participation will require attendance at six workshops spread across the year and include gap tasks. Any work produced will be shared across the hubs, giving access to a range of challenging topics. Please see the flyer for more details and register here .
