Matrix Maths Hub offers several opportunities for career development. If you are interested in hearing more about these opportunities, please contact us and fill in a register of interest form below:
Primary/Secondary Mastery Specialist Training
Since 2014, The NCETM and Maths Hubs have been working together to develop approaches to teaching for mastery within primary mathematics. This has been informed by the teaching of mathematics in high performing South East Asian jurisdictions. Each year since 2015 the NCETM and Maths Hubs have recruited more than 100 Mastery Specialist teachers. The first year in post is a training and development year, establishing mastery in their own schools, with the support of their senior leadership team. In the following years, they lead Work Groups involving six or seven other schools (primary) or 2 schools (secondary) in the development of teaching for mastery.
The NCETM and the Maths Hubs want to continue to recruit a cohort of teachers to develop and work as Mastery Specialists. Mastery Specialists will each eventually lead a Teaching for Mastery Work Group for their Maths Hub.

PD Lead Training
The NCETM and the Maths Hubs Network aim to provide the opportunity for all teachers of maths to benefit from high quality, collaborative professional development. This means that there needs to be enough people with the skills and capacity to lead, facilitate and support the professional development of others both within and across schools.
The NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead Programme is designed specifically to increase the number of 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.
The programme involves three face-to-face days and a series of in-school and independent planning and study tasks spread over the academic year. It is designed for colleagues who have existing experience as a PD Lead, either within their own school, college or organisation or more widely, and who wish to develop further in this role.

SLE Support Training
This project aims to support mathematics Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) in developing their approaches to maths school improvement work, including drawing on the expertise of, and aligning more with approaches used in, the Maths Hubs Programme. It will provide a regional support programme for participants through three workshops and an online community.
The programme involves three face-to-face days, independent study and school-based work. It is designed for colleagues who are experienced SLEs or who are new to the role. Throughout the three days, participants will engage in specific sessions to develop:
- skills in driving the improvement in maths, including developing the capacity of school leadership of maths
- knowledge and understanding of the challenges and barriers to school improvement in maths and how to tackle them
- knowledge and understanding of effective teaching of maths including teaching for mastery.
Applicants will need to attend all three dates in their chosen cohort.
