NCETM PD Lead Development and Accreditation Programme for EYFS Practitioners

The NCETM PD Lead Development and Accreditation (PDLDA) programme is designed specifically for such people and is part of the Maths Hubs Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development Leads who can support the work of hubs.

NW Maths Hub 3 are recruiting for an EYFS PD lead to start training in summer term 2017 continuing into 2018-19.

The programme

The programme consists of three face-to-face days (two days in Summer term 2018; one day in Autumn term 2018) and a series of in-setting and independent planning and study tasks spread over the academic year.  It is designed for colleagues who have some existing experience as a PD Lead either within their own setting or organization, or more widely, and who wish to develop further in this role. Participants in this programme will also be funded to work with local EY practitioners across their hubs for 40 additional days and so must ensure that they can be released to do this.

Who should apply

The programme is for Early Years practitioners (0-5) with relevant experience of leading the professional development of other Early Years practitioners of mathematics, either in their own setting, or more widely. Participants will be expected to commit to the full programme of activities and will need the support of their organisation to enable full participation. Applicants must have the willingness and capacity to work with practitioners in other settings locally and their setting must support this as well. In addition, the applicant will require the support of a Maths Hub, who will sponsor their participation in the programme and provide opportunity for them to work as a PD Lead.

Funding

This programme is funded by the Northern Powerhouse Funding to the 10 Maths Hubs in the North West, North East and Yorkshire and the Humber regions. Funding covers provision of the three face-to-face days, online and email coaching and tutoring from the Work Group Leads throughout the duration of the programme and all administration involved in subsequent accreditation. This means that all applicants must be sponsored by a particular Maths Hub. Please indicate on your application form, to which Maths Hub you are applying and from whom you are seeking sponsorship (a list of the Maths Hubs names is given in the appendix).

Travelling expenses and supply cover are also funded.

How to apply

Applicants, with the support of their head teacher /principal/senior manager, should complete the form below and submit it to the NCETM hub lead Lisa Bradshaw- lisa.bradshaw@three-saints.org.uk by Monday 19th March.
