Joining a Teaching for Mastery Work Group (TRG) is a professional development opportunity designed to support teachers like you to develop best practice in maths in your school. It is suitable for schools interested in implementing a teaching for mastery approach to maths.
What does the opportunity involve?
Two teachers from each participating school join a Work Group, consisting of six or seven local primary schools. Each Work Group is led by a trained primary Mastery Specialist.
Work Groups (sometimes known as Teacher Research Groups, or TRGs) meet regularly to plan, observe and discuss teaching for mastery. In between meetings, teachers explore mastery approaches in their own classrooms and across their school. Work Groups run for a year initially, with light touch support continuing beyond the first year as mastery is embedded in participants’ schools.
Support is provided from a local classroom-based Mastery Specialist who leads the group. This model of professional development involves hands-on learning and peer-to-peer support. It is evidence-based and designed to support substantial long-term change.
