As a National Maths Hub Ashton on Mersey understands the importance of high quality Maths teaching. This new and innovative programme utilises our experience of running a Primary PE specialist route to introduce high quality Maths graduates into the primary context.
The programme develops you as a primary teacher with a Maths specialism. This will allow you to take a leading role for Maths within a primary setting. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a national initiative to increase the quality of Maths in the primary context.
The course starts with a Summer School during August 2020.
The programme will then continue over an academic year. It will consist of school-based training and centre-based training days. Each trainee will train across at least two School placements.
Our Primary with Maths Programme has four areas of learning:
- Centre Based Learning – session based activities delivered at Ashton on Mersey School or Masters Level study at Manchester Metropolitan University.
- School Based Learning – learning activity completed at your placement schools.
- Guided Learning – learning completed on an individual basis.
- Enrichment Learning – This allows you (with the help of course leaders) to select an area of focus tailoring the programme to your own needs or interests.
“Overall a very good course which has prepared me for the life of a teacher – a journey I’m now about to continue with a wealth of experience under my belt, even if in such a short space of time! ”
