Primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs)- Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics

Course Details:
Area: Primary
Time Commitment: 4 days or equivalent
Aim: Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy which underpins it

Who can take part?

Phase 1 in this project is for those identified as Early Career Teachers who have not previously participated in this Work Group. Phase 2 is for those in the early part of their careers who have engaged with Phase 1 before engaging with this phase.

What is involved?

Two maths-specific subject knowledge projects are available to support primary Early Career Teachers (ECTs) – one is for ECTs who have not yet participated in this project and one is for those who participated in 2022/23. Both projects offer high-quality subject knowledge and pedagogy maths support for ECTs, recognising the requirements of the ECF.

This programme strikes a balance between developing teachers’ maths subject knowledge and pedagogical content knowledge, alongside classroom practice to support the learning of maths.

What will you learn?

  • Your pupils will be seen to elaborate when responding to questions, showing that their answer stems from a secure understanding
  • You will evaluate and adapt existing resources to enable them to be used to meet the needs of pupils
  • You will develop an understanding of approaches to assess pupils’ prior learning so that learning sequences are planned to take this into account

What is the cost?

The SKTM Primary Early Career Teachers Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.

What is the time commitment?

Participants will attend the equivalent of up to four days of sessions, focusing between sessions on the use of tasks in the classroom.
