We are delighted to have secured NCTL funding to deliver Teacher Subject Specialism Training (TSST) in Secondary Mathematics in 2017/18.
The focus of the year long programme is to increase subject knowledge and subject specific pedagogy across all topic areas and key stages to enable non-specialist teachers to teach mathematics. Participants can access a funded year-long programme – the only cost to your school is any cover costs incurred when attending sessions. This is a great CPD option for non-specialists currently teaching, or transitioning to teaching mathematics.
We appreciate that the programme is a big commitment, and therefore so that you can be fully informed before signing up, we are hosting a Information Evening on 9th October, at the Langdale Centre, Wallsend. This will provide you with the chance to meet the programme tutors, hear about the content of the programme, and have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have. Refreshments and Registration will be from 3.45pm, with the event starting at 4pm. Register to attend the information evening by visiting https://mathstsstinformation.eventbrite.co.uk
The programme consists of an initial full day training, followed by 10 twilight sessions across the year, and enrolment on an online SKE course led by Plymouth University. School mentors will facilitate the teaching of mathematics lessons back at the participant’s school (participants who do not have the opportunity at their own school, may be allocated a school to work with). There will be a further full day session to focus on pedagogy, opportunities to observe, and reflection on mathematics teaching at Churchill. All sessions are delivered by NCETM Accredited Professional Development Leads.
Participants who complete TSST will be awarded a certificate of completion from the Great North Maths Hub. Further reflective writing can lead into 30 credit Master’s Degree modules though CIMT, Plymouth University; Please contact us for further information on this.
