Wider CPD

Our aim in time is to fill this page with a full suite of courses that are highly relevant and exceptional in quality. They will be refreshed regularly and split in to three domains:

  • Courses that are driven by emerging issues as identified by the Cumbrian system to tackle issues ahead of need.
  • Courses that supplement the already exceptional quality all through curriculum of ITT to NPQEL.
  • Courses that provide additional professional development in areas that broaden our workforce’s skills and experience for the impact they can have on the provision for our children. These are typically offered each term or year and are linked to the cycle of our system.

Secondary Mastery Specialists Cohort 6 programme 2021-22:

There are currently hundreds of Mastery Specialists supporting colleagues in their own schools and beyond to develop mastery approaches to maths teaching. Mastery Specialists are classroom-based practitioners who develop expertise in mastery and lead Work Groups to support other schools and teachers locally.

Following the successful first six cohorts of the Mastery Specialist Programme, the NCETM and Maths Hubs are now seeking to recruit a seventh cohort of expert primary school teachers to develop and work as Primary Mastery Specialists.

PD Lead Accreditation Opportunity: Early Years, Primary, Secondary or Level 3 2021-22:

The aim of the NCETM and the Maths Hubs Network is to provide opportunities for all practitioners of mathematics to benefit from high quality collaborative professional development (PD). This requires that there are enough people with the skills and capacity to lead, facilitate and support the professional development of others, both within and across settings. The NCETM PD Lead Development and Accreditation Programme (PDLDAP) is designed specifically to address this need. This is part of the Maths Hubs Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development (PD) Leads who can support the work of local Maths Hubs.
