REGISTER INTEREST FOR 2022/23

Support for teachers new to teaching this qualification

Please note: this Work Group is being run via our colleagues at North-East Hants & Surrey Maths Hub

Who can take part?

This programme is for teachers who are in the first two years of teaching Core Maths and are teaching a Core Maths class during the academic year 2022/23.

What is involved?

This programme supports teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching Core Maths and increases their confidence in teaching the course. It involves a direct working partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics
Support Programme (AMSP).

Principal focus is on Core Maths subject knowledge and pedagogy and the programme will be based on these six key themes: using contextualised problem-solving; applying Fermi estimation and modelling; developing critical analysis; making sense of finance; using the pre-release materials; exploring statistics. Technology and online teaching will also be underlying themes.

What will you learn?

  • Your students will have raised awareness of the use of maths and statistics in everyday life
    You will plan lessons/sequences of lessons to promote student understanding, confidence, and progress
    You will understand the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving
    You will understand how online learning and technology can be used to support Core Maths teaching

What is the cost?

The New to Teaching Core Maths project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme and the AMSP so is free to participating schools/colleges.

Discover ways to help GCSE students improve their mathematical thinking

Who can take part?

This is for teachers of KS4 who want to further understand mathematical thinking, and devise related practical classroom strategies. Participants will be expected to lead developments in their own department and so should have the opportunity and authority to do this effectively. The project also offers an entry point into developing mastery approaches, or could support a department already involved in the Teaching for Mastery Programme.

What is involved?

Exam boards often note that, when students come to GCSE examinations, AO2 and AO3 are frequently poorly addressed. This Work Group is designed to meet teachers’ needs in that it provides practical and theoretical elements to support the development of students’ mathematical thinking, whilst offering a manageable structure for collaborative CPD.

The Work Group is structured around four meetings, with school-based tasks to complete and reflect upon between each meeting. Day 1 is a full day (or equivalent), with Days 2, 3 and 4 being around 0.5 days of input.

What will you learn?

  • Your students will develop a range of strategies to allow them to get started on, and to think their way through, unfamiliar mathematical problems
  • You will develop your understanding of the role of reasoning and problem-solving in the curriculum
  • You will develop an effective repertoire of task types that give opportunities for mathematical thinking
  • You will be equipped to develop strategies and approaches to support mathematical thinking within your department

What is the cost?

The Mathematical Thinking for GCSE project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Support and development for those leading maths across multiple schools

Who can take part?

The project is for those who lead maths across multiple schools within a MAT, including at least one secondary school. This includes MAT maths leads who are continuing from 2021/22, and new participants. To better engage in the programme, participants are encouraged to have at least one school in a Secondary Teaching for Mastery Work Group in 2022/23, but this is not essential.

What is involved?

Now in its second year, this project supports those who lead maths across multiple schools within a MAT. Participants will also develop their role as a leader of system change, curriculum change, and teacher professional development.

The programme involves three one-day face-to-face national workshops. Within these, the cohort will be split into new and continuing participants for some sessions, with other sessions for everyone. Participants will also carry out and evaluate their own improvement initiatives, both in and between sessions, and be part of a vibrant online community.

What will you learn?

  • You will promote and develop a shared vision for effective teaching and learning in maths
  • You will work with subject leaders across your MAT to lead and manage maths teaching effectively and to develop teaching for mastery approaches within your own department
  • You will understand the leadership and management skills required to effectively promote and develop teaching for mastery approaches within your schools
  • You will understand effective models of maths teacher professional development, the rationale for using them, and the evidence that supports them

What is the cost?

The Secondary Maths MAT Leads project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Explore approaches to key topics in KS3 and at GCSE

Who can take part?

Participants should be secondary school maths teachers. Individuals or ideally pairs of teachers from a department participate, and will work with other members of their department at appropriate points. The project also offers an entry point into developing mastery approaches, or could support a department already involved in the Teaching for Mastery Programme.

What is involved?

Feedback from teachers, along with GCSE exam analysis, indicates there are key areas of the curriculum that students find challenging. Work Groups in this project deconstruct and analyse these areas and devise effective approaches to them, to achieve a more coherent learning journey through the secondary years.

Work Groups will follow a workshop – school-based work cycle. Teachers will identify and analyse a key topic area, work collaboratively to develop pedagogical approaches to it, and evaluate and discuss it after teaching.

What will you learn?

  • Your students will gain a deeper understanding of the topic area being considered by the Work Group and the underlying maths
  • You will develop a deeper insight into the maths that underpins learning in a challenging topic, through unpicking and analysing the topic
  • You will identify misconceptions and plan a series of lessons to support students in the topic area
  • You and your department will unpick and analyse topics to inform collaborative planning and develop of schemes of work

What is the cost?

The Years 7-11 Coherence project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
