In January 2016, the Advisory Committee on Mathematics Education (ACME) convened an expert panel to consider the mathematics-specific knowledge needed by all teachers to progress in their career as a teacher of mathematics, at primary, secondary and Further Education levels. The Expert Panel was chaired by Robert Barbour. The Expert Panel has prepared a report, which sets out key principles on professional learning for all teachers of mathematics and how schools and colleges can foster such learning through personalised support and collaborative learning groups.
The Expert Panel’s report is to be launched on 7 December 2016 at 15:00. The launch will be held at Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy, Stoke-on-Trent, ST3 3JD. Ormiston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy is part of the ‘Maths Excellence Partnership’. Through this programme, Stoke-on-Trent has been proactive in seeking to address the recruitment and professional development of teachers of mathematics in partnership with Maths Hubs and other organisations, bringing together teachers and senior leaders, policy makers and researchers, as well as local businesses and local authority representatives.
