This term, a programme designed to upskill non-specialists teaching maths in secondary schools is launching. The programme, ‘Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Secondary Non-specialists’, is for anyone who has maths lessons on their timetable, but who did not train as a maths teacher.
Aligned with the pedagogy behind teaching for mastery, the new programme will enable participants to explore six key themes: structure of the number system; operating on number; multiplicative reasoning; sequences and graphs; statistics and probability; and geometry. Working collaboratively with peers, and with expert input from an experienced secondary maths practitioner, participants will improve their subject, curriculum and pedagogical knowledge.
Anyone interested in taking part in the programme, or who knows colleagues who would benefit from the opportunity, can find out more on the SKTM Non-specialists webpage. This page also includes a link to an Expression of Interest form, where prospective participants can leave their details in order to be contacted by their local Maths Hub about the opportunity.
