Our Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course is ideal for:
The course consists of three consecutive days of face-to-face professional development
This is an intensive study course. Each day will be jam packed with learning as well as extended reading to do at home following the sessions.
Delegates will work together throughout the course, learning with and from each other. This will also help build a supportive network of colleagues at similar stages in their career.
The course will significantly boost the mathematics content knowledge and mathematics pedagogical knowledge of attendees, giving them greater understanding of how to communicate key mathematical ideas to pupils. All delegates will gain greater mathematical confidence, which will increase their effectiveness as teachers of mathematics.
Delegates will develop highly impactful appoaches to teaching key mathematics lessons as well as gaining a love for the special pedagogic knowledge they need in order to communicate mathematics to children effectively.
The first day of the course is dedicated to the mathematical non-negotiables, which are the foundations of all school level maths. The non-negotiables are:
Each area will be explored carefully to ensure delegates have a firm understanding of the mathematics involved, the connections across ideas and the underlying relationships, which make these areas of the school mathematics curriculum crucial to get right.
The second day will further extend the non-negotiable basics to a wider exploration of number concepts and how algebra is used to represent generalisations.
The final day is dedicated to geometrical relationships and key ideas in school level geometry.
