As part of this project, Secondary Mastery Specialists will be offering support to schools across each hub area interested in developing teaching for mastery approaches in their departments. They will do this by setting up and leading a Work Group which models the approaches of a teacher research group. Maths Hubs are therefore now looking to recruit schools to participate in this exciting and innovative project as members of these Work Groups.
Each Work Group is led by a Mastery Specialist and will involve up to 12 teachers with ideally two teachers from each interested school (to ensure sustainable, collaborative working). The group will meet on four occasions (half-termly during the Spring and Summer terms), normally at the Mastery Specialist’s school.
Among the benefits for participating schools are:
- The Work Groups provide an opportunity for your school to engage in high-quality, sustained, collaborative professional development and participate in an important national project. The aim of these groups is to support participating teachers in developing teaching for mastery in their own classroom and across their department and to support the setting up of teacher research groups in the participant schools. As this is a pilot year, it will also be important to learn lessons about the design and planning of teacher research group type activities so that the processes can be refined for future use
- There is no fee or charge to participating schools to participate in this Work Group. The Maths Hub meets the cost of running the Work Group
Friday 16th December.
