Developing Subject Leadership in Secondary Maths
Type: Work Group For: Secondary heads of department / subject leaders
Time: 4 half days Cost: Free of charge
The purpose of this project is to offer focused support to secondary heads of department/subject leaders, to enable them to develop in their role as leaders of both pupil learning and teacher professional development.
A key aim of this project is to develop successful secondary mathematics departments that are well led and that provide ongoing subject professional development through collaborative working both within and between departments. Year One, will follow a workshop – school-based task cycle, which will take into account the specific contexts of the subject leaders. In future the objective will be to create a subject leader network with the focus on supporting each other through the sharing of strategies and practice.
Departmental policies and approaches
Subject leaders will promote and develop a shared vision for teaching and learning in maths. They will develop a coherent and ambitious action plan focused on improving outcomes for pupils and the needs of teachers. Subject leaders will ensure that there are approaches in place to support the work of their colleagues through continuing professional development and collaborative working.
Subject leaders will adopt collaborative ways of working within their department to support ongoing developments. They will also develop in their ability to lead change.
Subject leaders will understand the principles and practices behind the creation of a
coherent and connected curriculum which promotes teaching for mastery. They will understand the benefits of working collaboratively for sustained development of professional knowledge and practice within a department.
This project is for Secondary heads of department/subject leaders. There will be 4 sessions throughout the year with one group running in Norfolk and one in Suffolk.
