Programme Specific Elements.

We welcome trainees onto the Maths programme from a wide range of backgrounds. Successful trainees have come from Engineering, History lecturing, Charity work to recent graduates in Maths (or other related subjects). The course will enable you to develop your Mathematical subject knowledge and pedagogy, ready to inspire and educate our young learners in school. Before commencing on our programme trainees will have completed a Subject Knowledge Audit, identifying their weaker areas of knowledge within Maths. Sessions will often be tailored to address these weaknesses through a strand of teaching practice we wish to work on.

Typically sessions in Maths will include:

Mastery Maths

Mixed ability and set teaching in Maths

The challenges of planning

Use of technology in the Maths classroom

Building and using teaching resources

Use of manipulatives and visual representations within Maths

Adapting teaching to inspire and challenge learners of all abilities

Assessment strategies within Maths

GCSE and A-level opportunities within Maths

Rich activities, and developing thinking skills

Sessions are always of a very practical nature, with trainees being involved in solving mathematical problems, discussions relating to the pedagogical element being studied, participating in relevant activities, and planning how to apply learning in practice after the sessions.
