What is a Mastery Specialist?
All Mastery Specialists are classroom-based practitioners who develop teaching for mastery in their own classrooms. They then go on to lead Work Groups to support other schools/colleges and their teachers across our region. This year, alongside our established Primary and Secondary specialists programme, we’re also looking to recruit a brand-new cohort of Mastery Specialists, within the Further Education phase.
What is a Professional Development (PD)/School Development (SD) Lead?
PD Leads and SD Leads are expert teachers of maths who have responsibility for maths-specific professional development that extends beyond their own school.
- PD Lead progamme is for colleagues who have existing commitments and responsibility for designing, leading and evaluating maths teacher professional development
- SD Lead programme is for colleagues who work with schools and subject leaders to improve maths teaching and learning in a school or group of schools other than their own
