Overview

Using Mathematical Tools to develop number sense

This is a FREE WEBINAR, led by guest speaker Amy How, and supported by the Sussex Maths Hub Primary team.

Our Webinars are designed to help you further develop your knowledge for teaching mathematics. They do this in a number of ways, sometimes modelling the use of textbooks, schemes of work, and resources.

Our next Webinar will be led by Amy How, a leading practitioner in modelling how to effectively use the Rekenrek. This mathematical tool was created in the Netherlands and translates into “counting rack”; however it has so many more uses. It is a unique tool, famed for being versatile and visual, that allows children to develop solid number sense and look at multiple methods for addition, subtraction, and beyond. Amy will be demonstrating how you may wish to use the Rekenrek in your own classroom.

We very much hope that you and your colleagues will be able to join us for the Webinar!

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the Webinar.

A follow up session to further explore using the Rekenrek, will take place on May 10th at 4pm -5pm. More information will be sent out nearer the time.

Please note that we are not recommending what your school should invest in; this is wholly a decision for you and your schools. The Maths Hubs remain neutral in this area.

Overview

Become a Mastery Specialist in the Secondary Phase

Want to become a specialist in teaching for mastery and support your own and other schools to develop teaching for mastery approaches? Join the Secondary Mastery Specialist Programme. During the programme you will receive fully funded professional development from experts, have time to develop your own expertise, and then to support others.

What is involved?

  • Year One: you participate in several professional development events and focus on developing your own classroom teaching
  • Year Two: your focus is on developing teaching for mastery approaches within your own department and honing your skills in leading professional development
  • Year Three and beyond: you support key teachers in other local schools to develop a teaching for mastery approach within their own departments.

All the time, you keep in touch with other specialists across the country in online groups. You can share experiences and continue developmental conversations.

To support you in developing your role as a leader of professional development you will be enrolled in the NCETM’s PD Lead Development and Accreditation Programme during the second year of the Secondary Mastery Specialist Programme.

What is the cost?

The Secondary Mastery Specialist Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

Overview

Information about the Primary Mastery Specialists Programme

There are currently hundreds of Mastery Specialists supporting colleagues in their own schools and beyond to develop mastery approaches to maths teaching. Mastery Specialists are classroom-based practitioners who develop expertise in mastery and lead Work Groups to support other schools and teachers locally.

The Mastery Specialist Programme for primary teachers started in 2015/16. Each year around 140 primary teachers – four from each Maths Hub – complete a programme of professional development to become Mastery Specialists. In every subsequent year, each of these teachers leads a Teaching for Mastery Work Group. This involves working with participant teachers from six or seven primary schools within their Maths Hub area, so that these schools can start to introduce teaching for mastery themselves.

By the end of the 2019/20 school year, there will be 700 Primary Mastery Specialists established and operational. They will collectively have worked with more than 8,000 other primary schools, which represents around half of all primary schools in England.

Overview

Become an NCETM accredited PD Lead

NCETM Professional Development Lead Accreditation is designed for those who lead professional development for teachers of maths.

Who can take part?

This programme is for teachers of maths (all phases from Early Years to post-16) who have existing commitments and responsibility for designing, leading and evaluating maths teacher professional development, and the potential to develop further.

What is involved?

  • three one-day workshops
  • completion of an Accreditation Evidence Document (AED, which facilitates critical reflection on your learning and the PD you design, deliver and evaluate over the year)
  • designing, leading, reviewing and refining a programme of support for maths teacher professional development, drawing upon a range of evidence-informed models and activity.

Schools, colleges and other organisations releasing members of staff to participate in this programme will be expected to support members of staff through the programme by enabling them to complete the expectations for accreditation. Senior leaders of any participating organisation will be asked to sign a commitment before the member of staff begins the programme.

What will you learn?

Participants will:

  • Develop knowledge of models of CPD for maths teachers
  • Consider the themes and issues in teaching maths, and the implications of these in supporting other teachers
  • Design a professional development programme, deliver it, and evaluate it
  • Develop relationships with senior leaders to support a sustainable culture of maths CPD
  • Increase their own subject knowledge and professional practice.

Participants will also have the opportunity to pay to work with the University of Chester and gain an academic award (PG Cert) for completing an enhanced version of the programme.

What is the cost?

The PD Lead Development and Accreditation Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participants and their schools. Funding covers provision of the three face-to-face days. Travel costs will also be funded.
