Secondary Mastery Specialist Applications – Deadline Extended

We are all working in very difficult circumstances due to the Covid-19 virus and school closures but we are still planning for the future.  

Applications for teachers to train to become a Cohort 5 Secondary Mastery Specialist are now open with the application deadline extended until Monday 1 June.  This is fully funded CPD (Travel and cover costs) over a three year period, with each year being a 15 day commitment.

Those already engaged in developing mastery in their own school all say that the impact on students is :

·         Improved confidence in Mathematics

·         Willingness to try any task and persevere

·         Improved ability to mathematically articulate their reasoning and argue their view point

·         Improved problem solving skills

·         Students have increased success in lessons which increases their enjoyment and engagement

·         Test and exam results show that the tail is much closer to the rest of the cohort and the cohort in general is getting higher results than in previous years

·         Students are learning why maths works and how to explain mathematically

If you have been teaching for at least three years then this may be the developmental journey for you.
