We are pleased to be able to share below a list of funded Primary opportunities for next academic year. Programmes will start much earlier than usual to support schools with ongoing Covid-19 recovery. Please note, signing up on our website does not guarantee a place on the programme and this will be confirmed directly with schools once we have an idea of demand.
Apply to become a Primary Mastery Specialist
Mastery Specialists are classroom practitioners who develop expertise in the mastery approach to teaching maths. Through rigorous and interactive training, they become experts in introducing and embedding mastery. After first developing a mastery approach in their own classrooms, they go on to support colleagues in their own and other schools.
We are looking to recruit two new primary specialists to join our team. The role comes with funding for release time. To find out more and apply, click on the link below.

Subject Knowledge for EYFS Teachers
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.
Subject Knowledge support for Primary ‘Early Career Teachers’
From the academic year 2021/22, all teachers new to the profession will be considered as ‘Early Career Teachers’ (ECTs). This Work Group will support them as they enter their first year of teaching and will be designed to align with the Early Career Framework as well as the NCETM Teaching for Mastery approach.
