NCETM Professional Development (PDLDA)
The NCETM Professional Development Lead Development and Accreditation (PDLDA) programme is designed specifically to increase the number of CPD leading mathematics teachers and is part of the Maths Hubs Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development Leads who can support the work of hubs. This national drive seeks to develop colleagues in Early Years, Primary, Secondary, Core Maths and A level Maths.
Maths Hubs are now recruiting teachers to join these FREE programmes in 2018-19. Please see our information and application form for more information. The deadline for applications is 31st July 2018.

Keele Maths Teacher Network Meeting
The meeting will be of interest to any KS5 teacher, particularly those who may be unfamiliar with the statistics topics in the 2017 A level specification.
The two-hour session, led by Paul Chillingworth, will suggest activities that could be used in the classroom to introduce the statistical content to students, with attention given to the large data set.
Please see the flyer for more information.
Teaching Critical Thinking For Maths
With much greater focus on mathematical problem solving and critical thinking in the revised curriculum, deeper and independent learning skills are ever more important in the classroom.
The British Council has collaborated with the NCETM to offer this free course in Cheadle to support and help you to explore practical ways of developing and implementing these fundamental elements of mathematics teaching and learning.
Getting To Grips With Technology in the New A Level
This course is relevant to all teachers of the new AS and A level Mathematics qualifications, given the requirement for the use of technology to permeate the study of them. It focuses on promoting mathematical understanding through the use of technology, including graphical calculators, graph-plotting software and using the large data set. Additionally, this course will provide guidance to help you integrate the use of technology in your classroom, both teacher-led and student-led.
PD Leads programme for Primary, Secondary and Advanced Level
The NCETM and the Maths Hubs Network aim to provide the opportunity for all teachers of mathematics to benefit from high quality, collaborative professional development. This requires that there are enough people with the skills and capacity to lead, facilitate and support the professional development of others both within and across schools.
The NCETM PD Lead Development and Accreditation (PDLDA) programme is designed specifically for such people and is part of the Maths Hubs Network’s strategy to build up a group of Professional Development Leads who can support the work of hubs.
Following the recent review and revision of the NCETM PDLDA programmes for primary, secondary and A-level, Maths Hubs are now recruiting teachers to join these programmes for 2017/18. To find out more please see the information and application form.
