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.
