Professional Development Lead Programme

Course Details:
Area: Leadership
Aim: Become a NCETM accredited PD Lead for maths

NCETM Professional Development Lead accreditation is designed for those who lead professional development for teachers of maths.

One of the main criteria for successful PD is that it stimulates new thinking – this certainly did that for me. Very thought-provoking and inspiring.

Who can take part?

These programmes are for expert teachers of maths (all phases from Early Years to post-16) who have existing commitments and responsibility for designing, leading and evaluating maths teacher professional development, and who will lead maths professional development beyond their institution.

What is involved?

The PD Lead Programme is designed for participants who are working with other teachers to enhance the teaching and learning of maths.

Participants benefit from the equivalent of three one-day workshops (face-to-face and online). The completion of an Accreditation Evidence Document, which facilitates critical reflection on participants’ learning and the professional development they design, deliver and evaluate over the year, is also required. Participants will design, lead, review and refine a programme of support for maths teacher professional development, drawing upon a range of evidence-informed models and activities.

What will you learn?

  • You will develop an understanding of effective models of maths teacher professional development
  • You will critically evaluate your own professional development programme against your intended outcomes
  • You will develop an understanding of the full range of potential outcomes of maths teacher professional development
  • Participants in the programme you design will report a change in their subject knowledge/professional practice
  • Participants will also have the opportunity to pay to work with the University of Chester and gain an academic award (PG Cert) for completing an enhanced version of the programme.

What is the cost?

The Professional Development Lead Programmes are fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so are free to participants and their schools.
