Work Group Lead

In each Maths Hub, there are many different projects (we call them Work Groups) running simultaneously in a wide range of areas. Each involves a different mix of teachers and other maths education experts. While the Maths Hub Lead has an overview of the activity as a whole, each project has its own Work Group Lead. Across the Maths Hubs network, there are now hundreds of these local leaders of maths education (LLMEs), exerting influence and leadership in their own Maths Hub. Leads will access high quality training and support from the Maths Hub and the national network of leads led by the NCETM.

Work Group to strengthen partnerships with ITT providers

Who can take part?

Lead participants in this programme will be from the ITT community; they should be directly involved in ITT with a responsibility for maths. They will represent the various ITT providers across the hub region so may include HEI, SCITT and School Direct, and represent different phases of ITT including EYTS, QTS (primary and secondary), and post-16.

What is involved?

This project aims to form an established group of ITT representatives across the sector who are committed to developing communities of practice in order to review and evolve their provision.

Any work undertaken will be in conjunction with the leaders of maths provision in ITT institutions, to strengthen the partnership and agree actions that will support the deepening of understanding of teaching for mastery for ITT trainees at an award level. Activity may include working across hub boundaries and collaborating in larger regions.

What will you learn?

  • You and those responsible for maths provision at your institution will review your practice and programme
  • You and those responsible for maths provision at your institution will aim to ensure trainees have some understanding of designing lessons informed by mastery principles
  • Maths Hubs leaders will have a dynamic awareness of the local needs of ECTs and schools
  • Maths Hubs leaders will ensure there is regular opportunity for collaboration and professional discussion of practices across ITT providers and that this dialogue informs hub work

What is the cost?

The Strengthening Partnerships with ITT Providers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating institutions.
