Code: OTSA/20/26 Teacher Subject Specialism Training Mathematics (Cancelled)

Do you have any non-specialist Maths teachers in your school?
Are you a Science teacher with some Key Stage 3 teaching on your timetable?
Are you a PE teacher covering a Year 10 Set 3 Maths group?

It continues to be widely publicised that nationally there is a shortage of Mathematics teachers and this is affecting schools across every county. This NCTL supported programme is designed to support non-specialist secondary Maths teachers [teachers who have qualifications in other subjects and / or have completed their QTS in other subjects] who are, or will be, teaching Mathematics in your school.

These 10 sessions will provide Maths specific CPD to support the teaching of Maths in the classroom, with the aim of improving the quality of teaching and learning, as well as student outcomes. Each session will aim to provide participants with a greater understanding of how topics interlink and how to plan for progression across the curriculum.

Cost: Free to participants who regularly attend the sessions (at least 7 out of 10 sessions).

'Alternative approaches for teaching if students fail to understand'


Coaching support (Optional).
We can provide a coach for any of the course participants to continue to develop practice over the duration of the programme.
