The Shanghai Exchange Programme is the annual exchange of teachers between schools in England and Shanghai.
The purpose of the exchange is to further develop the understanding and implementation of mastery approaches to teaching maths in schools, and in local partner schools during the school year 2019/20. This is one part of the Teaching for Mastery Programme, run by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) in conjunction with the Maths Hubs Programme, and funded by the DfE.
The group of teachers, all of whom have completed training as Mastery Specialists in a programme run by the NCETM and Maths Hubs, will be visiting Shanghai in November 2019 and will spend two weeks observing how maths is taught in Shanghai, and then hosting their partner teachers from Shanghai in English schools in March 2020.
This is the sixth teacher exchange with schools in Shanghai since the Maths Hubs Programme was launched in autumn 2014!
Along with the exchange of the visits, the visiting teachers from Shanghai will also be planning a lesson to show teachers the way they teach Mathematics. This involves showcase lessons taking place which teachers from South Yorkshire can sign up to attend. Both Primary and Secondary Phase showcase events are due to take place in March 2020!
