Leadership

Professional Development Lead

Who can take part?

These programmes are for expert 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 who will lead maths professional development beyond their own institution.

What is involved?

The PD Lead Programme is designed for participants who are working with other teachers to enhance teaching and learning of maths.

Participants benefit from the equivalent of three one-day workshops (face-to-face and online). The completion of an Accreditation Evidence Document, which facilitates critical reflection on participants’ learning and the professional development they design, deliver and evaluate over the year, is also required. Participants will design, lead, review and refine a programme of support for maths teacher professional development, drawing upon a range of evidence-informed models and activity.

What will you learn?

  • You will develop an understanding of effective models of maths teacher professional development
  • You will critically evaluate your own professional development programme against your intended outcomes
  • You will develop an understanding of the full range of potential outcomes of maths teacher professional development
  • Participants in the programme you design will report a change in their subject knowledge/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 Professional Development Lead Programmes are fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so are free to participants and their schools.

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
