Work at the NCETM recently has been dominated by supporting Maths Hubs in getting this year’s network projects up and running. A key part of this work consists of sessions run centrally by the NCETM for teachers who lead local Work Groups within these projects. The generic term increasingly used for people in these roles is ‘local leaders of maths education’ (LLME). All Maths Hub CPD is currently taking place remotely, at least until February half term, and is adapted to support teachers working in the current challenging circumstances.
The Primary Teaching for Mastery Programme becomes more established every year, with a clear pathway for development now defined. This programme has reached 50% of primary schools in England so far. The Secondary Teaching for Mastery Programme, now in its 5th year, complements and continues the transformative work, now making significant impact in secondary schools.
The NCETM website continues to provide resources for individual and school-based collaborative CPD, curriculum planning and lesson delivery, as well as supporting any work teachers do locally with their Maths Hub. The following have been recently published:
Finally, in October there was cause for celebration when the NCETM’s Director for Primary, Debbie Morgan, was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours.
