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 2021/22. Both projects offer high-quality subject knowledge and pedagogy maths support for ECTs, recognising the requirements of the ECF.
Communities of ECTs will be formed in these projects, allowing for collaboration and practice-sharing. In both projects, teachers will design effective learning and teaching in maths, and review and analyse their practice.
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 identify essential concepts, knowledge, skills within the topic area and provide opportunity for all pupils to learn and master these critical components
  • 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.
