Leadership Development

Schools and colleges need high quality subject leadership in order to improve the quality of mathematics teaching and the outcomes for pupils. Maths Hubs are therefore working in a range of ways to develop and support maths leadership. This includes supporting subject leaders working within their own schools and local leaders of mathematics education that work with teachers from a number of schools. Scroll down to take a look at how the London North East Maths Hub can support you in your journey in mathematics leadership.

Secondary Maths Teachers and Heads of Department

The Maths Hubs Network needs to expand the pool of people with the skills and capacity to lead maths-specific professional development activities for groups of teachers.

To that end, the NCETM, working with Maths Hubs, is seeking applications from teachers and others with experience in maths teaching to take part in a programme this academic year, leading to the nationally recognised designation of NCETM Accredited PD Lead.

There are three tailored versions of the programme: for those with primary, secondary, and A- level experience. Each consists of three face-to-face days (two days in the 2018 spring term; one day in the second half of the 2018 summer term) and a series of in-school and independent planning and study tasks spread over the academic year. They are part of the Maths Hub Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development Leads who can support the work of hubs in every school and college phase.

Full information and the application form can be found here.

The closing date for returning applications to the NCETM is Tuesday 14 November.

Primary Network Meeting

Last year, this network brought together around 30 Primary Maths Leads from the local area. Coordinators felt well supported to develop their own leadership practice and were kept at the forefront of local and national key messages affecting mathematics education. A strong need was expressed to continue with a network like this for Maths Coordinators to share their journey towards mastery and supporting the aims of the National Curriculum in their own schools, and beyond.
The network meetings take place termly at Elmhurst Primary School, Upton Park Road, London E7 8JY. The meetings take place in the afternoon from 1.320-4pm.

Dates for this year’s meetings are available for those on our mailing list. Contact us to get on…

Secondary Network meeting

Secondary engagement is a key area of focus for the Hub. We want to establish a strong network of local Heads of department who will be taking key messages back to their schools and teachers through encouraging better attendance at network meetings. The purpose of the network is to provide a forum for discussion of issues affecting schools, sharing best practise and being at the forefront of information and news of the Maths Hubs Programme.

Dates for this year’s meetings are available for those on our mailing list. Contact us to get on…
