South Yorkshire Maths Hub - Teaching Assistant Subject Knowledge Enhancement

There is more to subject knowledge than being able to do the maths yourself. The Teaching Assistant SKE project is designed to develop teaching assistants’ subject knowledge in maths so they can support children’s learning in the classroom and in small intervention groups.

Work Groups will explore maths in depth, making connections between topics and concepts. Participants will also work collaboratively, led by a local leader of maths education (LLME) to develop deep and secure subject knowledge and appropriate pedagogy so they are well-equipped to support pupils.


Who is this for?

Teaching assistants in primary and secondary and specialist schools who support children with their learning of mathematics.


What is involved?

  • 5 x 3 hour workshops spread throughout the year to help consolidate learning
  • Independent study and setting-based work including gap tasks and evaluation
  • Online discussion as part of a professional community – FREE membership of NCETM is essential to receive communications regarding the workgroup.
