Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics – Secondary Teaching Assistants

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

This is a new programme to support teaching assistants develop the specialist knowledge for working within the maths classroom. The programme is aligned with an overall Teaching for Mastery Programme designed to develop maths teaching in schools and is aimed at supporting teaching assistants whose schools are already engaging with a Teaching for Mastery Work Group.

This programme will be relevant for teaching assistants who work for most of their time with students in the KS3 maths classroom or who lead intervention sessions with groups of students. The participants’ schools should already be engaged with a Teaching for Mastery Work Group, and this programme will complement this provision.

This Work Group is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
