Overview

The Maths SLE School Improvement Support Programme

This programme aims to support existing mathematics SLEs in developing their approaches to mathematics school improvement work including drawing on the expertise of approaches used in the Maths Hubs Programme, such as teaching for mastery. It will provide a regional support programme for participants through three workshops and an online community.

The SLE Programme is only open to designated mathematics SLEs attached to a Teaching School. The programme involves three face-to-face days, independent study and school-based work.

Throughout the three days, participants will engage in specific sessions to develop:

– skills in driving the improvement in maths, including developing the capacity of school leadership of maths

– knowledge and understanding of the challenges and barriers to school improvement in maths and how to tackle them

– knowledge and understanding of effective teaching of maths including teaching for mastery.

The programme will run in regional locations in the North, Midlands and the South. Applicants will need to attend all three dates in their chosen cohort.
