Secondary Mastery Programme: closing date – Thursday 7th June 2018

Don’t forget to apply- Secondary Mastery Programme: closing date- Thursday 7th June 2018

The NCETM and Maths Hubs are recruiting a third wave of teachers to join the secondary Mastery Specialists programme. This is part of a significant expansion of teaching for mastery work by Maths Hubs in secondary schools across England.

Following the broad format of preceding cohorts, the teachers will complete a three-year professional development programme, with these objectives:

first year (2018-2019): developing mastery approaches in their own classroom

second year (2019-2020): developing mastery approaches across their school’s maths department

third year (2020-2021): supporting two other schools’ maths departments to introduce teaching for mastery.

The teachers will attend five residential training events, run by the NCETM and Maths Hubs, spread across the first two years, the first taking place in the 2018 autumn term. In between, the teachers will work with colleagues from their local Maths Hub and, on an ongoing basis in an online community, share experiences and materials with colleagues from the entire cohort.

Funding: each teacher’s school receives £3000 per year for the first two years, to cover release time of 15 days per year. In the third year, their schools will receive £350 per day for 15 days’ work supporting departments in other schools, making a total of £5250.

Each Maths Hub is looking to recruit three or four teachers in this cohort.

To apply:

  • Applicant and nominating head teacher/senior leader complete the relevant parts of the form. Please see application  and more information here: 
  • e-mail the application to the NCETM (mathshubs@ncetm.org.uk) by 5pm Thursday 7th June 2018.
  • Applicants will be notified by 14th July 2018.

The closing date for applications is 7 June 2018. Only state-funded schools in England are eligible to apply to take part.
