Secondary Mastery Opportunities

The Solent Maths Hub are delighted to be able to offer two exciting opportunities to become involved in Secondary Teaching for Mastery: 

Specialist Programme: 

Following the success of the secondary Mastery Specialist programme thus far, Maths Hubs, working in conjunction with the NCETM, are now seeking applications from secondary schools that wish to nominate ‘lead teachers’ to take part in an important three-year professional development programme leading to the designation of Secondary Mastery Specialist.  Schools nominating teachers for this role would be committed to the development of teaching for mastery in the lead teacher’s classroom, across their mathematics department and, later on, to facilitate and support the development of teaching for mastery in a small number of other interested secondary schools within their Maths Hubs areas. 

Please find attached, information and application form.  Please note that the closing date for applications is 26th April. 

Cohort 4 Information and application 2019-20

Mastery Work Groups:

In 2019-20, all Maths Hubs are participating in a Network Collaborative Project addressing secondary mathematics teaching for mastery.  As part of this project, Secondary Mastery Specialists in each hub area will be offering support to schools interested in developing teaching for mastery approaches in their maths departments.  Each specialist who has completed the second year of their support and development programme will work with two departments.  Maths Hubs are, therefore, now looking to recruit schools and their maths departments to participate in this exciting and innovative project as members of these Work Groups. 

Please find attached, information and application form.  Please note that the closing date for applications is 24th May.

Event: Teaching for Mastery (Secondary) (4th and 5th July)

We are excited to invite secondary maths teachers to this event where teachers can share their experiences of Teaching for Mastery. 

Bar modelling is an essential maths mastery strategy.  A Singapore-style on maths model, bar modelling allows pupils to draw and visualize mathematical concepts to solve problems.  Time will be spent looking at how bar modelling can be used and you will receive a teaching resource to take away to use in your classroom. 

This event is free to attend to all secondary maths teachers.  A buffet lunch will be provided upon arrival and you will be provided with resources to take away with you.
