Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Maths - Primary Early Career Teachers

This project is designed to support primary early career teachers (teachers in their first two years of teaching) in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom.


What is involved?

Participants will work deeply on one area of maths, drawing in the associated pedagogy, and activities will include lesson analysis and lesson design. This programme will take place across the equivalent of four days.


What are the benefits?

Participants will:

  • plan and teach a carefully sequenced and coherent area of maths
  • appreciate the key ideas underpinning the area of maths being taught
  • understand key principles and approaches associated with teaching for mastery
  • understand approaches to assess pupils’ prior learning, so that learning sequences take this into account
  • make appropriate use of representations to expose the structure of the maths being taught.


What are the expectations?

Participants and their schools must be able to commit to the full academic year’s programme.


Who can apply?

This programme is designed for primary early career teachers (those in their first or second year of teaching).


What is the cost?

The SKTM – Primary Early Career Teachers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.


Where and When?

To be Confirmed. 


Who will lead the programme?
