Strengthening partnerships with ITT providers


This project aims to form an established group of ITT representatives across the sector who are committed to developing communities of practice in order to review and evolve their provision.

By 2024, the aim is for all engaged ITT programmes to include initial preparation for teaching for mastery.

These Work Groups are therefore needed to support sustained best practice networks between ITT providers and local hubs with a focus on teaching for mastery.


These Work Groups are also needed to support the hubs in identifying the mathematical needs of their early career teachers, which informs their local offer.

Who can take part?

Lead participants in this programme will be from the ITT community; they should be directly involved in ITT with a responsibility
or maths. It is expected that these participants will represent the various ITT providers across the hub region so may include HEI, SCITT and School Direct, and represent different phases of ITT including EYTS, QTS (primary and secondary), and post-16.

What will you learn?

  • You and those responsible for maths provision at your institution will review your practice and programme

  • You and those responsible for maths provision at your institution will aim to ensure trainees have some understanding of designing lessons informed by mastery principles

  • Maths Hubs leaders will have a dynamic awareness of the local needs of ECTs and schools

  • Maths Hubs leaders will ensure there is regular opportunity for collaboration and professional discussion of practices across ITT providers and that this dialogue informs hub work

The Strengthening Partnerships with ITT Providers project is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating institutions.
