This course is specifically designed to develop the subject knowledge of qualified teachers who did not train as maths teachers. It is also suitable for returning teachers who need to refresh their subject knowledge. The programme runs over 6 sessions which will build your skills and confidence to deliver good and outstanding maths lessons up to GCSE, address misconceptions and improve your understanding of how key ideas develop across the key stages. This high quality training opportunity has been developed in collaboration with the Centre for Innovation in Mathematics Teaching (CIMT) and is completely FREE OF CHARGE through funding from the DfE.
Our Maths TSST programme is offered at Malmesbury School this year and we hope to be able to run face to face sessions supported by online resources. It is likely that the first sessions will be online.
