This project is designed to support primary early career teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.
There are two phases: Phase 1 communities are for those identified as Early Career Teachers- teachers in their first or second year of teaching. Phase 2 Communities are for those in the early part of their careers. They will have engaged with Phase 1 before engaging with this phase.
If you have previously participated in SKTM - Primary Early Career Teachers 2021/22 and wish to continue into a second year please follow the link below for further information on Phase 2.
Participants will work deeply on one area of maths (number sense), drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design. The emphasis is on supporting ECTs with observing and reflecting on their own practice.
This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.
Participants and their schools must be able to commit to the full academic year’s programme.
This programme is designed for primary early career teachers (those in their first or second year of teaching).
The SKTM – Primary Early Career Teachers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
