Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM) Programmes
 
SKTM Secondary Early Career Teachers
Develop mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy
 
What is involved?
Two maths-specific subject knowledge projects are available to support secondary 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. The programme will build on the knowledge gained during initial teacher training. This will be achieved by focusing on one area of maths in detail: multiplicative reasoning for participants in Phase 1, and sequences and graphical representations for participants in Phase 2.

SKTM Secondary Non-Specialist Teachers
Highly-regarded professional development offering secondary non-specialist maths teachers valuable CPD focusing on subject knowledge and pedagogy There are significant numbers of people teaching maths in secondary schools without specialist initial teacher training. This programme supports non-specialist teachers in developing the specialist knowledge (the blend of subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge) for teaching maths. It is designed to take place over the equivalent of six days.

SKTM Secondary Teaching Assistants
Develop mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy
 
What is involved?
This programme is designed to improve the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge of all TAs supporting the learning of secondary maths. Participants will focus on using precise mathematical language, representations, and reasoning within the topics: addition and subtraction; multiplication and division; ratio; and fractions. They will also carry out follow-up tasks in school to enable practice transfer to the classroom. The programme will take place over the equivalent of four days; participants must attend all sessions.

Cross Phase – Supporting Students to Achieve a L2 Qualification in Mathematics Work Group
Identify and meet the needs of students continuing L2 study at post-16
 
What is involved?
This is for teachers whose students will study up to Level 2 maths across secondary and post-16. Teachers of Years 10 and 11, and of GCSE Maths resit and/or Functional Skills Maths, will develop ways to support students who need to study maths beyond age 16 to achieve a L2 qualification. Work Groups will focus on developing transferable teaching techniques aligned to teaching for mastery. Participants will attend three full-day workshops and complete practice-based tasks between sessions.

Years 5 – 8  Continuity Work Group

Strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school
 
What is involved?
Work Groups in this project focus on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8. Participants will collaborate with colleagues from across KS2 and KS3, working on mathematical tasks together and reflecting on the resulting activity and learning. Sessions will take place in KS2 and KS3 settings, offering the chance to see tasks in the context of a classroom. School-based activities between meetings encourage participants to make use of the resources with their own pupils.

Securing Foundations at Year 7 Work Group
 
Discover ways to help students who need additional support to make good progress in KS3 and beyond
 
What is involved?
This project aims to provide professional development and resources for secondary maths teachers, so they are better equipped with KS1 and KS2 maths curriculum domain-specific knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge. It will give them the necessary expertise to support students with gaps in understanding content from previous Key Stages.
Participants in this project will gain access to high-quality resources designed by experts in the pedagogy and expectations of maths at both KS2 and KS3.

Secondary Subject Leadership 
Local Work Groups will follow a cycle of workshops followed by school-based tasks. Participants will support each other through the sharing of leadership strategies and practices. A vibrant professional learning community will be created through peer-to-peer discussions and expert input. Participants will also create an action plan for their department.
Much of the work will involve each individual department working on elements of their action plan and developing collaborative ways of working which support their professional development. As well as exploring the needs of their own department, participants will benefit from the expertise and experiences of the group of departments represented.

Secondary Maths MAT Leads
Now in its second year, this project supports those who lead maths across multiple schools within a MAT. Participants will also develop their role as a leader of system change, curriculum change, and teacher professional development.
The programme involves three one-day face-to-face national workshops. Within these, the cohort will be split into new and continuing participants for some sessions, with other sessions for everyone. Participants will also carry out and evaluate their own improvement initiatives, both in and between sessions, and be part of a vibrant online community.
