The NCETM has announced that hubs are now able to invite applications to be part of an exciting opportunity to join a Teaching for Mastery Work Group. Led by Maths Hub Mastery Specialists, this offers schools a way to be supported to embed a teaching for
mastery approach in their schools and work alongside other schools implementing this powerful approach.
The NCETM has revealed that applications are now open for schools interested in participating in the primary Teaching for Mastery Work Groups project. Each hub is recruiting schools for up to 8 Work Groups and under the leadership of an established Mastery
Specialist, participating schools will be supported to work together to introduce and develop approaches to teaching for mastery in their own settings.
This is a fantastic opportunity for schools to be supported to introduce and explore this powerful approach with high quality support for lead teachers, and opportunities to work with other schools embedding this approach. Funding is available to help subsidise
teacher release time, and matched funding of up to £2000 can support schools in buying text books from the DfE's recommended list. The Work Groups are intended for schools already committed to a teaching for mastery approach.
Applications are made directly to Maths Hubs. Please note that applications must be made to your local hub.
Therefore as the White Rose Maths Hub, we can only accept applications from schools in our designated areas of
Calderdale, Kirklees, Bradford and Leeds. We encourage readers outside of these areas to contact their local hub to make an application (visit
www.mathshubs.org.uk) for further information. Please note applications must be received by
Being part of a Work Group naturally requires a minimum level of commitment, for example the lead teachers will need to be released for a minimum of ten days (combined) for development work and meetings, and we advise schools to review these expectations
