As part of the Maths Hubs offer for professional development for maths teachers in 2021/22, a project focusing on Secondary Subject Leadership has been announced. Participation in the project will enable secondary heads of maths to better understand and implement teaching for mastery approaches across their department, and to develop in their role as leaders of both student learning and teacher professional development.
Participation will take the form of local workshops (online and face-to-face) interspersed with school-based activities. HoDs will have the chance to support each other through the sharing of strategies and ideas, and the development of action plans.
The project will suit HoDs from secondary schools in any context, whether new or experienced in role. Potential participants might include secondary HoDs:
- joining this Work Group at the same time as colleagues in their departments join the Teaching for Mastery Programme as Specialists or Advocates
- whose departments are already involved in the Teaching for Mastery Programme
- who have members of their department that have been involved in other secondary Maths Hubs projects (Year 5-8 Continuity, Challenging Topics, Mathematical Thinking)
- whose departments have no prior experience of working with their Maths Hub.
The Secondary Subject Leadership project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
If you are interested in participating in a local Work Group as part of this project, visit the Secondary Subject Leadership webpage to find out more. You can also contact your local Maths Hub to discuss the opportunity in more detail.
