During the programme you will receive fully funded professional development from experts, have time to develop your own expertise, and then to support others.
Any teacher (excluding ECTs) who is teaching maths in a state-funded secondary school in England and who wishes to develop both their own classroom practice and their skills in leading professional development with others can apply to become a Secondary Mastery Specialist.
What is involved?
  • Over a minimum of three years, participants first work on their own understanding and practice, then with their own department, then with other departments as a Local Leader of Maths Education for their Maths Hub.
  • All the time, you keep in touch with other specialists across the country in online groups. You can share experiences and continue developmental conversations.
  • To support you in developing your role as a leader of professional development you will be enrolled in the NCETM’s PD Lead Programme during the second year of the Secondary Mastery Specialist Programme.
