Teach Your Pupils the Maths & Strategies They Need for the KS2 Maths SATs

This course looks at all the maths behind the current KS2 Maths Programmes of Study and will cover the knowledge that teachers need to possess in order to confidently deliver upper KS2 maths lessons.

This was a great course. I have benefited so much. Maths was my core subject on my recent PGCE, but the focus was on pedagogy. This course has unravelled how to teach the maths. I think all newly qualified teachers should take it and those who are thinking of teaching in Upper Key Stage 2. In addition, I particularly liked the fact that we could email you directly and discuss issues and I appreciate your responses.

    DFE Standards for Teachers' Professional Development

    Professional development should have a clear focus on improving and evaluating pupil outcomes

    We have clearly outlined course outcomes and goals and evaluate participants’ prior knowledge in order to ensure progression. Course tasks are designed to help participants evaluate impact on themselves, their school and the pupils.

    Professional development should be underpinned by robust evidence and expertise

    Course content is developed in line with current thinking and is thoroughly researched by our expert tutors. Course tasks are designed not only to fit in around participants day to day teaching, but also to link teacher practice to pupil experiences and outcomes. Task feedback and support is given to reinforce impact evaluation of teachers practice and the wider implication for pupils and the school. All our courses are independently evaluated to ensure intended outcomes and quality.

    Professional development should include collaboration and expert challenge

    Our eLearning environment and the content of the seminars and tasks is structured to encourage participants collaboration, tutor support and to challenge existing methods in order to develop more informed practice and better pupil outcomes.

    Professional development programmes should be sustained over time

    The online delivery and course models we use in our training ensures content and the learning experience is delivered over a period of time. Support and Mentoring is available throughout the duration of the course and course materials and seminars are available for an extended period after the course finishes.

    Professional development must be prioritised by school leadership

    The course outcomes outlined in our Individual Learner Plans help participants plan and collaborate with leaders in order to develop on-going professional development strategies and plans. Our tasks and course feedback provides evidence to show school leaders and to provide forward planning for participants professional development and practices.

    Accessing the Course

    Access to the course materials and eLearning area is for a 12 month period, tutor support for 1 term. There are 8 online seminars each lasting approximately one hour.

If candidates are unable to attend the seminar they can watch the recording and ask any questions via email. This format enables candidates to access the training at a time of their choosing. The tasks are planned to fit in with teachers’ work requirements. There is a forum area allowing participants to share information and ask questions.

    Course Tutor

    You will be working with our maths specialist, Phil Howarth BSc PGCE. Phil is an Applied Physicist and has taught KS3, 4&5 Physics for over 30 years. He has taught GCSE & A Level Mathematics and been involved in 1 on 1 Maths booster lessons for pupil premium students in Years 7 and 8. Phil has also been involved in teacher training for his whole career, and more recently has been a examiner for one of the National Exam Boards.

    I have enjoyed the seminars and they have taught me a little on how to teach objectives in a different way. I have been able to incorporate a few of these in my classes (the children really enjoy the fact that I have to do homework too and like it when I share it with them). Thank you very much.

    The support given by the Tutor throughout was excellent. He responded to emails quickly, gave great advice and was hugely encouraging. The seminars were very thorough and the bank of resources that have been provided will come in very useful. (Some already have.)

    It has been great to get Phil’s ‘take’ on things and I have certainly learnt a few clever teaching methods along the way, specifically with regard to the new curriculum.
