Strengthening partnerships with ITT providers
Now in its fourth year, this project provides opportunities to explore and share current mathematical developments and consider their implications for ITT providers and Maths Hubs in order to help trainees transition into teaching mathematics effectively.


What are the benefits?
Participants and their institutions will:
  • deepen understanding of, and involvement in, the work of their local Maths Hub and the Maths Hubs Network, along with their knowledge of the principles of teaching for mastery and how they relate to classroom practice
  • review practices and programmes, aiming to ensure trainees have some understanding of lesson design informed by mastery principles
  • develop planning which includes reference to the principles of teaching for mastery and is further enhanced by opportunities to observe Mastery Specialists’ lessons with a follow up discussion
Who can take part?
Lead participants in this programme will be from the ITT community; they should be directly involved in ITT with a responsibility for maths. It is expected that these participants will represent the various ITT providers across the hub region so may include HEI, SCITT and School Direct, and represent different phases of ITT including EYTS, QTS (primary and secondary), and post-16.
