Secondary Teaching for Mastery – Sustaining

A vibrant professional learning community to reflect upon and develop mastery approaches.

This project is for departments who have previously participated in Development Work Groups. While the Mastery Advocates from these departments will be significant members of the Work Group, the whole department is a member of this professional learning community. Each Work Group will have a focus for the year.

The four foci for 2023/24 are:

  • Developing mathematical thinking
  • Developing coherence
  • Developing mathematical coherence for learners across maths and science
  • A bespoke teaching for mastery focus.

These Work Groups are for all departments that have previously participated in Mastery Development Work Groups and all Cohort 1-6 Mastery Specialist Departments. The two lead participants continue to be Advocates who have participated in a Development Work Group and key teachers from a Mastery Specialist’s department, but particular Work Group sessions may sometimes be joined by participants’ departmental colleagues.

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