Code: 19MAT/031P Becoming a highly effective mathematics subject leader

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.
