Recruitment Opportunities


Primary Mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups

Information and Application (2017-18)

In 2017-18, all Maths Hubs will be running primary mathematics Teaching for Mastery Work Groups led by Mastery Specialists. Each Maths Hub is now seeking to recruit schools for up to eight Work Groups, each involving six or seven schools.

The Work Group activity will include:

  • Each school identifying two teachers to lead developments within their school
  • The two teachers working together with the Mastery Specialist and teachers from the other Work Group schools in half-termly Teacher Research Group (TRG) meetings and through an online community
  • Each school receiving a termly support visit from the Mastery Specialist to observe teaching, support in-school TRGs, and work with the lead teachers and head teacher
  • The head teacher working with the Maths Hub leadership and other Work Group school head teachers to develop whole school policies and structures to support teaching for mastery
  • The lead teachers, supported by the head teacher, working with colleagues to develop teaching for mastery approaches in the classroom, supported by professional development activity including TRG methods

Who can apply

The Work Groups are intended for schools that are already committed to using teaching for mastery approaches for primary mathematics. Schools should also have the capacity for engaging in significant development work during 2017-18 and 2018-19. Schools that have already begun to engage with teaching for mastery are more likely to be prioritised by the Maths Hub.
