  • Maths Hub update

    Published 19/01/22

    The Maths Hubs Network and the NCETM are continuing to provide subject-specific professional development and support for all primary and secondary teachers of maths in 2022. All professional development opportunities are designed so they can adapt to changing circumstances and ensure that participants can collaborate safely and effectively.

    There are still spaces available on a range of Maths Hubs projects, including Years 5-8 Continuity, which focuses on the transition between primary and secondary maths, and a variety of Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics programmes, designed to support teachers at all stages of their career. Many Maths Hubs are also running Work Groups focusing on issues and topics specifically identified as relevant to their local area.

    In the last term of 2021, the DfE published new guidance for teaching maths at KS3. It was written by the Secondary Team at the NCETM, and additional resources to augment the guidance, including a two-minute explainer video and a podcast, are now available.
