Specialist Knowledge for Mathematics Teachers - Secondary Early Career Teachers

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it

Who can take part?


Participants will be those identified as Early Career Teachers – teachers in their first or second year of teaching.

What is involved?


Whilst recognising the requirements of the Early Career Framework, this programme provides a subject-specific focus for the ECT that enhances the statutory offer, with a focus on the teaching of maths. This is situated in the context of two core mathematical concepts: Multiplicative reasoning, and Sequences and graphical representations.

The programme will build on the knowledge gained during initial teacher training. It focuses, for two years, on the key elements of observing learning, task design, lesson design and adapting teaching.


What will you learn?


  • Your students will reason with increasing confidence in response to effective questioning within the classroom

  • You will consider task and lesson design, with your students’ needs in mind

  • You will notice aspects of teaching for mastery within a given task or lesson, and be able to articulate their purpose


When and where?

The next cohort will begin in autumn 2024. The workshop details will be confirmed in September.

What is the cost?


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