Maths Mastery for Early Career Teacher (ECT)


This course will provide participants with an understanding of the pedagogy behind a mastery curriculum. They will learn about and discuss fluency, reasoning and problem solving, and use resources to promote these skills effectively in their own classrooms.


During this course, participants will:

  • Gain a deeper understanding of mastery in maths, considering why and how a mastery approach is beneficial
  • Complete and consider activities and methods for enabling mastery and greater depth
  • Consider how important classroom culture, teacher presence and attitudes of learners are in creating a ‘can do’ environment where risks and achievements are energised and confidence is elevated
  • Consider their role in questioning, AfL and using misconceptions to make learning dynamic

“This was an area I felt I didn’t know much about at all but it has really opened my eyes and gave me a much better understanding of primary Maths and the NC aims. Thank you.”Teacher, Lower Farm Primary School

“It explained the maths curriculum really well. I was struggling at school to understand why we were using more problem solving and reasoning. ‘Straight forward maths’ is fine, but to really be able to ‘see’ how to interpret maths and ask the appropriate questions to really challenge the students so that they can apply the skills needed, is something that is new to me. My head keeps saying you need to question and challenge the children and now I do understand why and how and have a good introduction into some great resources. Thank you!”Teacher, Comberton Primary School
