Who can take part?
The project is for those who lead maths across multiple schools within a MAT, including at least one secondary school. This includes MAT maths leads who are continuing from 2021/22, and new participants. To better engage in the programme, participants are encouraged to have at least one school in a Secondary Teaching for Mastery Work Group in 2022/23, but this is not essential.
What is involved?
Now in its second year, this project supports those who lead maths across multiple schools within a MAT. Participants will also develop their role as a leader of system change, curriculum change, and teacher professional development.
The programme involves three one-day face-to-face national workshops. Within these, the cohort will be split into new and continuing participants for some sessions, with other sessions for everyone. Participants will also carry out and evaluate their own improvement initiatives, both in and between sessions, and be part of a vibrant online community.
