Early Years

NOW RECRUITING (for September 2021) - Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics in EYFS

The purpose of this programme is to support Early Years teachers in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics (SKTM), thus enabling them to better understand, teach and support pupils in maths in the classroom. The aim is to develop teachers’ pedagogical subject knowledge about number patterns and structures leading to more precise provision for, and tracking of, pupils’ learning.

Based upon the recent guidance released by the Education Endowment Foundation, this programme will help schools “invest in developing practitioners’ own understanding of mathematics, their understanding of how children typically learn, and how this relates to effective pedagogy.”
