SKTM Primary Early Career Teachers

Booking has closed for 2023/24.  


Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it.
Two maths-specific subject knowledge projects are available to support primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs) – one is for ECTs who have not yet participated in this project and one is for those who participated in 2022/23. Both projects offer high-quality subject knowledge and pedagogy maths support for ECTs, recognising the requirements of the ECF.
This programme strikes a balance between developing teachers’ maths subject knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge, alongside classroom practice to support the learning of maths. Participants will attend the equivalent of up to four days of sessions, focusing between sessions on the use of tasks in the classroom.
What will you learn?

  • Your pupils will be seen to elaborate when responding to questions, showing that their answer stems from a secure understanding
  • You will evaluate and adapt existing resources to enable them to be used to meet the needs of pupils
  • You will develop an understanding of approaches to assess pupils’ prior learning, so that learning sequences are planned to take this into account


What is the cost?
The SKTM Primary Early Career Teachers Programme project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to state-funded participating schools.
