Code Project Description Flyer
NCP18-16 Supporting post-16 GCSE resit This project aims to explore effective ways of teaching key content of the new GCSE to resit students. Working collaboratively, teachers of resit groups from FE and schools will develop and share effective ways to approach the new GCSE, with a focus on issues particularly affecting this sector such as: student confidence and motivation, condensed timeframe, and large student numbers.
NCP18-17 Supporting Core Maths This project provides support for departments offering Core Maths by enabling teachers to develop robust teaching approaches through collaboration and effective use of existing resources. The Work Group is run in partnership between the Maths Hubs network and the Advanced Mathematics Support Programme (AMSP). Participants will gain understanding of the philosophy of Core Maths, with its approach to maths through contextualised problem-solving, and will appreciate the different Core Maths courses and be able to choose the one appropriate for their students.
NCP18-21 Teaching Assistant SKE (Subject Knowledge Enhancement) The development of mathematical subject knowledge for Early Years practitioners is a key aspect of the work of Maths Hubs. This project will offer two types of Work Groups for EY practitioners: Work Groups to support EY practitioners new to post or with limited experience/training in Early Years maths, focusing on key concepts in EY mathematical development; and Work Groups to develop established practitioners, focusing on the development of research informed practice and starting to develop wider practice.
NCP18-22 Developing working partnerships with ITT providers Teaching Assistants involved in this project will develop key stage specific subject knowledge to enable them to support mathematics in the classroom or in small intervention groups. The project will enable TAs to develop deeper understanding of both the content and pedagogy of the maths curriculum and understand how TAs are most effectively deployed for impact on learning
NCP18-23 Developing working partnerships for SEND and mathematics Work Groups in this project will be formed with at least one special school working with a small group of mainstream schools (either primary, secondary or both). They will promote reasoning and use of manipulatives, providing a different approach to working with SEND students across mainstream and special schools. The pedagogy introduced, and any resources trialled, would support the principles of teaching for mastery
NCP18-04 NCETM accredited PD lead programmes This ongoing work in all Maths Hubs is for practitioners involved in leading the professional development of colleagues and seeking to gain accreditation as an ‘NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead’. Participants will take part in three face-to-face days (bespoke to Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Post-16) over the course of 2018/19, together with institution-based work and individual study undertaken in between these days. They will plan, run and evaluate a professional development programme for a group of teachers and record their planning, evaluation and reflection.
