Strengthening partnerships with ITT providers
One of the strategic goals of the Maths Hubs Programme is for Maths Hubs to work with a range of partners to ensure there is effective initial training of new teachers of maths in primary and secondary schools, so that they have the specialist knowledge required to support the learning of maths.
By 2023, 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.
Lead participants in this programme will be from the ITT community; they should be directly involved in ITT with a responsibility for 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.
