Local Leaders of Maths Education

Developing Mathematics Teaching in South Yorkshire

The South Yorkshire Maths Hub is committed to supporting teachers of mathematics to develop their practice by creating a local community of educators working collaboratively together.

Along with the National Centre of Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) the maths hubs nationally recognise the limited value of professional development programmes that merely “deliver training” but instead promote the collaborative nature of the working group in which colleagues work together on a specific focus of mathematical education with the common aim to recognise, develop and exercise best practice.

Traditional “training” methods and day-courses have been shown to have limited impact on changing teachers’ classroom practice
WT2
 
Programmes that include collaborative professional dialogue has proven to be more successful in developing classroom practice

 

Each year there are a number of opportunities for teachers to engage in work groups. These usually involve a programme of 4-6 sessions. The length of these workshops differ from group to group but are typically ½ day sessions or twilights. The expectation for participants will be to contribute to the professional discussions and engage in mutually agreed classroom activities that trial specific strategies and feedback their experiences to the group.

The focus areas of work groups in 2017/8 have included; Early Years, Lesson Design, Intervention, Developing Fluency, Evidencing Progress, Supporting SEND pupils as well as subject knowledge programmes for both teachers and teacher assistants.

For a full list of available work groups or to be kept up to date of opportunities in 2018/19, register for the monthly SYMH e-newsletter by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Each work group is led by a local leader of mathematics education (LLME) and teachers wishing to join this group of facilitators and help lead local maths development can contact Tara at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Work group leaders have their own network of support.

Support for work group leaders (WGL) is facilitated locally through the South Yorkshire Maths Hub and nationally through the NCETM, typically there will be a number of WGLs working together as a team and resources, activities and strategies will be shared.
