This training is aimed at mathematics subject leaders who are either new to the role or looking to enhance their contribution to improving maths across the school.
Throughout the course, delegates will gain an in-depth understanding of the expectations of core subject leadership.Delegates will develop their capacity to evaluate teaching and learning across a range of evidence to drive improvement throughout the school.
The key elements of mathematics subject leadership will be explored through a spotlight on each of the different aims of the mathematics curriculum: fluency, reasoning and problem solving. This will enable subject leaders to deepen subject-specific knowledge and understanding.
The course is delivered in five sessions throughout the year, across four days in total, during which attendees will be guided through the yearly monitoring and evaluation cycle.
The course is highly interactive and school-based gap tasks throughout the year will help leaders to consolidate the activities and reflections undertaken during the training to embed the tools and processes into everyday practice.
Delegates will be required to attend all 5 sessions of this training.
By attending the training, participants will:
- be able to examine the role of the subject leader to support them in proactively driving progress and improvements in mathematics
- be able to embed systems that will allow them to manage the challenges and create opportunities to drive standards forward
- be able to create a valuable evidence base for school self-evaluation be able to consolidate their learning through a variety of school-based gap tasks deepen their understanding of subject-specific content and explore strategies for promoting the aims of the maths curriculum across the school
My name is Rachael Brown and I am the member of the HfL maths team who is leading this year’s ‘Becoming a highly effective maths subject leader’. I look forward to meeting you on Thursday 26th September and working with you across the academic year to support you to improve the teaching of maths in your school. The first session is a half-day session running between 9am and midday.
If you are an existing subject leader, please bring your own end of year evaluation of impact notes and any other relevant documents to help you plan the year ahead. If you are a new subject leader, please bring any handover notes from the last SL, these should reflect your school’s key priorities in maths and a review of last year’s actions. It would also be very useful to have your school’s development plan for this academic year.
If you have any queries or questions at all before we meet, please do let me know.
