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.
The Maths Hubs Network works to expand the pool of people with the skills and capacity to lead maths-specific professional development activities for groups of teachers offering training to become Professional Development (PD) Leads.
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 (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 (PD) Leads who can support the work of hubs in every school and college phase.
