Secondary Teaching for Mastery – Development
“Through this Mastery Programme our year 8 cohorts use of mathematical language is far superior to many of our KS4 pupils of similar ability. It is definitely a Work Group that we would recommend.” (Maths Lead, Borehamwood)
“The impact on learning was immediate and measurable. I have begun developing mastery in my team. They love it!” (Maths Lead, Royston)
Professional development to enable you to introduce teaching for mastery across your maths department
What is involved?
Secondary maths teachers whose schools want to introduce and embed teaching for mastery can nominate two teachers (Mastery Advocates) to join a Work Group. Mastery Advocates then form part of a locally-based group of teachers who meet regularly to develop professional knowledge and expertise, and receive bespoke support.
In a Teaching for Mastery Work Group, teachers collaborate with colleagues from local schools, and get support and guidance from a Local Leader of Maths Education (LLME). Participants also take away ideas to help students become more confident mathematicians, ready to tackle GCSE and A level, and begin to introduce and embed teaching for mastery.

Who can take part?
This programme is for state-funded secondary schools in England. Mastery Advocates should be teachers with the commitment, experience and authority to lead developmental work across a maths department. The support of the Head of Maths, and the headteacher or a member of SLT, is also essential.
- Your students will develop a deep, secure and connected understanding of the maths they are learning.
- You will begin to develop teaching for mastery approaches within your own classroom.
- You and your head of department will begin to develop an understanding of the practices and principles aligned to secondary teaching for mastery.
- You will begin to support the teachers in your department to develop teaching for mastery approaches in their practice.
What is the cost?
The Work Groups are fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme, so are free to participating schools.
