Mathematics Teacher Subject Specialism Course

Liverpool Hope is offering an NCTL-funded CPD programme for non-specialist teachers of mathematics in schools and colleges. There are no fees. The programme carries accreditation at Masters level as a Postgraduate Certificate, and supports St Helens Teaching School Alliance. ‌

Both courses are for secondary teachers only. Applications are made directly to Liverpool Hope University.

The programme is targeted at mathematics teachers who did not originally qualify in the subject, to strengthen their subject and pedagogical knowledge.

To be eligible to join the course, teachers must have QTS. Priority will be given to applicants who are teaching mathematics in schools.‌

Through attending this course, participants will:

  • encounter new ideas and interconnections in mathematics,
  • in a stimulating, and supportive and collaborative environment,
  • and will be supported in developing more effective approaches to teaching,‌
  • enabling them to teach mathematical concepts with real clarity and insight,
  • to strengthen both their knowledge and confidence in the subject, leading to improved learning for their students.

Between 2007 and 2013, 99 teachers from a wide variety of professional backgrounds have completed the Mathematics Subject Knowledge Enhancement Course (formerly the Mathematics Development Programme for Teachers) at Liverpool Hope.  Hope is now recruiting for the 2016-17 programme and seeks applications at the earliest opportunity.‌

 

Programme Structure

The programme takes place over three terms in 2016-17, starting in early October 2016.  

Taught sessions will take place each term on one Friday and three Saturdays, and regular weekday twilight sessions.  Following induction and initial needs assessment, these sessions will provide a focus upon the key school curriculum areas of Algebra and Number, Geometry, Statistics and Data Handling. The course will also focus upon related research, theories of learning, and academic writing skills.  We hope that this blend of practical mathematics subject and pedagogy input combined with a rigorous academic strand, will provide a powerful mix, enabling course participants to develop an active understanding of the relationship between theory and their own practice.
