A new programme to help maths Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) fine-tune their school improvement work and strengthen the impact of maths leaders in schools and colleges, has been launched by the NCETM and Maths Hubs.
The Maths SLE School Improvement Support Programme will run in three locations across England (North, Midlands, South), involving three face-to-face days – in January, March and June – with independent study and school-based work in between.
A key objective is to improve SLEs’ ability to grow the capacity and capability of maths leaders, so that they have the skills to lead their own teams and improve practice in their own schools.
The funded programme is for current mathematics SLEs linked to a Teaching School. It will benefit both those with previous experience of developing leadership capacity in schools, and those new to the role.
The SLE development programme is funded by Maths Hubs Programme. Funding covers provision of the three face-to-face days. Travelling expenses are not funded.
Great North Maths Hub are able to sponsor a number of SLE’s, which would mean we would cover the three days’ supply costs at £200 per day. (£600 in total). If applicants would like to take this opportunity, please email firstname.lastname@example.org who will reply to confirm that sponsorship is available. You will need to indicate on the application that Great North (NE1) have agreed to sponsor you.
The closing date for returning applications to the NCETM is Friday 23 November 2018.
