Opportunities for accreditation as an NCETM Professional Development Lead

As it expands towards the end of the decade, the Maths Hubs Network (http://www.mathshubs.org.uk/) needs to increase the pool of people with the skills and capacity to lead maths-specific professional development activities for groups of teachers in all school and college phases, including Early Years.

To that end, the NCETM, working with Maths Hubs, is seeking applications from teachers and others with previous experience of leading maths-specific professional development, either in their own workplace or more widely, to take part in the forthcoming round of the PD Lead Programme. Successful completion will lead to the nationally-recognised designation of NCETM Accredited PD Lead.

There are five tailored versions of the programme: for those leading professional development of Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Core Maths, and A level Maths teachers. Each consists of three face-to-face days during the academic year 2018-19 and a series of in-school and independent planning and study tasks spread over the year. These programmes are part of the Maths Hubs Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development Leads who can support the work of hubs in every school and college phase.

Full information and the application form, for Early Years applicants only, can be found here

The closing date for returning applications to the NCETM is Tuesday 31 July 2018.
