Code Project Description Booking
NCP 19-09 Primary Teaching for Mastery Development Work Groups This project is part of the continuing programme to develop teaching for mastery in maths in primary schools. Each Maths Hub has a team of Primary Mastery Specialists who have taken part in national training. Each of these specialists leads a group of 6 or 7 schools in developing their approach to teaching for mastery, through collaborative CPD and bespoke in-school support. Recruitment closed for 2019-20
 NCP 19-10 Primary Teaching for Mastery Embedding Work Groups Teachers and schools who took part in mastery development Work Groups in 2018/19 continue to embed mastery by joining this project. Ongoing support and professional development are available as schools embed teaching for mastery in every classroom, and secure a whole-school approach to sustained change in maths. Recruitment closed for 2019-20
NCP 19-11  Mastery Readiness for Work Groups This project will develop vital skills and practices for schools who have not yet accessed the Teaching for Mastery programme and have an identifiable barrier to them developing TfM across the school. Participant schools will access free workshops and regular high-quality bespoke support of a trained Mastery Readiness Lead Cohort 2 starting in January 2020. Apply here
NCP 19-12  Lesson Design The project will focus on designing effective lesson plans, making use of key resources such as the Primary Mastery Professional Development materials and text books. There has been a large investment in both resources and making effective use of them will support schools in embedding teaching for mastery in mathematics. For those schools that have taken up the text book funding, this Work Group will provide them with the opportunity to reflect on how these materials can be best used to support teachers, through the planning process, to develop subject and pedagogical knowledge.
