Whole school Leadership and Development in 2018-2019:


Specialist Leaders in Education (SLE)

This work will build on the previous SLE National Co-ordinated Project in 2017, but involve a shift towards funding the support of Maths SLEs rather than covering the costs of school improvement work


Local Leaders of Mathematics Education (LLME) Network

LLMEs are leaders of mathematics education who are working beyond their own institution, for example, Maths SLEs, registered NCETM Accredited PD Leads, Maths Hub Work Group leaders (including Teaching for Mastery specialists). The LLME network does not support subject coordinators or heads of maths working only within their internal leadership role. 


NCETM PD Lead Development and Accreditation Programmes 

This is a programme of 3 face to face days over the course of 2018/19 together with institution-based work and individual study undertaken in between these days.

Participants will undertake to plan, run and evaluate a professional development programme for a group of teachers / practitioners* during the course of the 3-day programme and to record their planning, evaluation and reflection in a suite of PD lead documents (a Programme Planning and Evaluation Template (PET), a Session PET and a Reflection and Learning Journal)

Successful completion of the programme and satisfactory completion of all tasks and related paperwork will result in the participant being accredited as a NCETM Accredited PD Lead.


Developing working partnership with ITT providers

In each hub there will be a Work Group Lead who is already a member of the ITT community. During the year the Work Group Lead will establish contact with all local ITT providers and support the development of a network for these. This will promote discussion amongst providers on good practice and also allow the Maths Hub to share their work and the teaching for mastery approach with trainee teachers.

It is one if the National Priorities that all Maths Hubs work with ITT providers. Working with this community will be an important part of the wider Maths Hub role as the Teaching for Mastery programme expands and more schools are adopting this style of teaching. It is important that teachers new to the profession are aware of the pedagogy involved.
