It is designed to take place over the equivalent of six days.
What will you learn?
Your students will develop a deep, secure and connected understanding of the maths they are learning
You will increase your confidence in planning for progression in maths
You will improve your subject and curriculum knowledge of secondary maths 
Who can take part?
This programme is for non-specialist teachers of maths in state-funded schools in England who fit the following definition:
"A non-specialist teacher of mathematics is a teacher in a state-funded school or college that is currently teaching some mathematics or has commitment from a headteacher/executive head to teach some mathematics within the next year, who has not undertaken Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in mathematics."
What is the cost?
