I want to bring about department-wide improvement in maths teaching

Supporting Post-16 GCSE Resit Work Groups NCP 19-14 This project aims to explore effective ways of teaching key content of the new GCSE to resit students. Working collaboratively, teachers of resit groups from FE and schools will develop and share effective ways to approach the new GCSE, with a focus on issues particularly affecting this sector such as: student confidence and motivation, condensed timeframe, and large student numbers. Some Maths Hubs – check with your local hub and those in neighbouring areas Yes - contact your local hub
Supporting Core Maths Work Groups NCP 19-21 This project provides support for departments offering Core Maths. It enables teachers to develop robust teaching approaches through collaboration and effective use of existing resources. The Work Group is run in partnership between the Maths Hubs Network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP). Participants will gain understanding of the philosophy of Core Maths – with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving – and will appreciate the different Core Maths courses. Some Maths Hubs – check with your local hub and those in neighbouring areas Yes - contact your local hub
Embedding Technology in Level 3 Mathematics NCP 19-22 Run in partnership with the AMSP, Work Groups in this project will explore practical approaches for integrating technology. It offers national support for the effective embedding of technology in the teaching of Level 3 Mathematics (Core Maths, A level Mathematics and/or Further Mathematics). This support is designed to enhance teaching in order to develop students’ conceptual understanding. Participants are also developed as technology champions in their own school or college. Some Maths Hubs – check with your local hub and those in neighbouring areas Yes - contact your local hub
Developing Pedagogy in A Level Mathematics NCP 19-23 This project provides support for developing the quality of teaching in response to the demands of the new specifications for A level Mathematics and Further Mathematics. Run in partnership with the AMSP, Work Groups in this project aim to develop knowledge of content and requirements of the new A levels and understand the purpose of the overarching themes.

I want to become a leader of maths-specific professional development

NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programme NCP 19-05 This ongoing work in all Maths Hubs is for teachers involved in leading the professional development of colleagues and seeking to gain accreditation as an ‘NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead’. Participants will take part in three face-to-face days (bespoke to post-16) over the course of 2019/20. These generate institution-based work and individual study to be undertaken in between. Teachers will plan, run and evaluate a professional development programme for a group of colleagues, and record their planning, evaluation and reflection. All Maths Hubs Some hubs are still recruiting to this programme - contact your local hub
Maths SLE School Improvement Support Programme NCP 19-06 Mathematics SLEs (or aspiring SLEs) participating in this project will be supported in developing their approaches to maths school improvement work. The project will provide a regional support programme for participants through termly workshops and an online community. Workshops will take place in the North, the Midlands and the South. Most Maths Hubs – check with your local hub and those in neighbouring areas Yes, if you are already an SLE with a specialism in maths, or working towards your accreditation

All Maths Hubs maintain and support a local community of people who provide maths-specific professional development. These professionals are collectively known as local leaders of maths education (LLME). Maths Hubs are also developing working partnerships with all those places (university and school-based) providing initial training for maths (and primary) teachers. Contact your local hub to find out what’s going on in your area under both these headings.
