Excellence in the teaching and learning of maths is vital to the aims and aspirations of further education and work-based learning. However, the diverse nature of the curricula, which can include Functional Skills, resit GCSE, Core Maths, and A level, and the plethora of new initiatives present a challenge for anyone co-ordinating this activity. Strong leadership, including the ability to plan effectively, inspire teachers, lead improvement, and meet a wide range of learners’ needs is key to ensuring operational and strategic success.
This sustained professional development course is suitable for any new or aspiring Maths Lead who wishes to reflect upon this demanding role and learn strategies to improve their performance.
The course is ideally suited to those in their first few years of leading a maths team, or similar role. Experienced Maths Leads will also benefit from the opportunity to evaluate and reflect upon their practice. Teachers aspiring to become a Maths Lead will find this course useful preparation.
