PD Lead

Lead: NCETM

The NCETM Professional Development Lead Accreditation is designed for those who lead professional development for teachers of mathematics. There is a choice from five possible pathways to accreditation depending on the phases of the teachers with whom PD leads work: Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Advanced Level, and Core Maths. NCETM Accredited PD Lead status is gained by successfully completing a development and accreditation training programme which involves face-to-face sessions, together with independent and school-based gap tasks, leading to accreditation by the NCETM. Once accredited, there is an ongoing re-registration process and there is also support for PD Leads to maintain accreditation.

Work Group Lead

Lead: N/A

In each Maths Hub, there are a dozen or so different projects (or Work Groups) running simultaneously in a wide range of areas. Each involves a different mix of teachers and other maths education experts. While the Maths Hub Lead has an overview of the activity as a whole, each project has its own Work Group Lead. Across the Maths Hubs network, there are now hundreds of these local leaders of maths education (LLMEs), exerting influence and leadership in their own Maths Hub. Work Group Leads have access to high quality training and support from the Maths Hub and the national network of leads led by the NCETM.
