Maths Hub TA Key Stage 2 SKE Work Group

Maths Hubs Network Collaborative Projects 2019/2020

FREE Teaching Assistant KS2 Specialist Knowledge Enhancement for mathematics

A series of 3 morning sessions for KS2 teaching assistants


What will these sessions provide?

KS2 Teaching Assistants will develop their mathematical subject knowledge in conjunction with understanding the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it. Understanding of mathematical structures will be explored so participants gain a detailed understanding of how children learn early mathematical concepts. 

As a result of this project, participants will not only be able to ‘do’ mathematics, but will also have the appropriate pedagogical knowledge to teach and support their pupils well.
Participants will develop both their knowledge about maths and knowledge about the teaching of maths, developing better pedagogy and being aware of how pupils learn, and how to teach the content most effectively. Classroom practice will develop through participants’ engagement with gap tasks between meetings, trying out activities with pupils to promote understanding, reasoning and fluency.

The wider context

The Maths Hubs Network, across England, works on national projects by running local collaborative work groups of teachers around national maths education priority areas. One such priority is to improve the subject knowledge of all adults in maths classrooms.  These work groups use a common evaluation process, which collectively provides a body of evidence on the project’s outcomes. Participation in this work group will contribute to the delegates’ own professional learning and that of their colleagues, as well as contributing to the improvement of maths education at a national level.


Cost and booking - Free of charge
Please note that a charge of £100 per participant for non-attendance without prior notice will be applied.

  • Participants are expected to be working as classroom teachers or teaching assistants. TAs should be working in a classroom environment and/or involved with individual or small group support and intervention
  •  All participants are expected to attend all the sessions and complete gap tasks in their schools between the sessions. They will also be asked to keep a learning log for their own use and contribute to the national evaluation process, probably through a short online survey after the Work Group has finished.
