The NCETM Accredited PD Lead Programmes

on .

The NCETM and the Maths Hubs Network aim to provide the opportunity for all teachers of maths to benefit from high quality, collaborative professional development. This means that there needs to be enough people with the skills and capacity to lead, facilitate and support the professional development of others both within and across schools.

The NCETM Accredited Professional Development Lead Programme is designed specifically to increase the number of such people and is part of the Maths Hubs Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development Leads who can support the work of hubs.

Maths Hubs are now recruiting teachers to join these programmes in 2019/20.
