We believe that every child in every school can succeed in mathematics, and that excellent maths-focused professional development for teachers is the way to make this happen. Mathematics Mastery was developed by teachers in the Ark Schools network in 2012, who worked together to develop a curriculum and pedagogy based on international evidence and tailored to UK schools. The approach emphasises problem solving, understanding and mathematical language through using objects and pictures, and evidence-based practice. The partnership now extends well beyond the Ark network and includes around 470 schools in all regions of the UK.
As we continue to grow, recruiting more partner schools for 2018-19, we are seeking to appoint an outstanding candidate to work with the Mathematics Mastery team to further develop our support for schools. There are three main aspects of the role:
- School Development – working directly with teachers and leaders in schools around the country to support the implementation of the programme and gather feedback so we can continue to improve our provision.
- Curriculum Development – developing cutting-edge training materials and teaching resources for partner schools. The focus will be on either primary or secondary, depending on the successful candidate’s experience.
- Training – preparing and leading training for teachers and leaders.
The exact ratio of the duties will depend on the experience and expertise of the successful candidate. You will have the opportunity to make a real difference and develop professionally in a fast-paced and growing organisation.
