Specialist Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (Secondary Non-specialist Teachers) Programme

Develop mathematical subject knowledge and understand the pedagogy that underpins the teaching of it.

Highly-regarded professional development offering secondary non-specialist maths teachers valuable CPD focusing on subject knowledge.


Who can take part?

This programme is provided for non-specialist teachers of maths in state-funded schools who fit the following definition:

A non-specialist teacher of mathematics is ‘a teacher that is currently teaching some mathematics or has commitment from a headteacher/executive head to teach some mathematics within the next year, who has not undertaken Initial Teacher Training (ITT) in mathematics’.


This project is designed to support non-specialist teachers teaching maths in a secondary school in developing specialist knowledge for teaching mathematics, thus enabling them to understand, teach and support students in maths in the classroom.

There are significant numbers of people teaching maths in secondary schools without specialist initial teacher training. This programme supports non-specialist teachers in developing the specialist knowledge (the blend of subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge) for teaching maths.

This programme will take place over seven full days.


  • Your students will develop a deep, secure and connected understanding of the maths they are learning

  • You will increase your confidence in planning for progression in maths

  • You will improve your subject and curriculum knowledge of secondary maths

What is the cost?

The SKTM Secondary Non-specialist Teachers Programme is fully funded by the Maths Hubs Programme so is free to participating schools.
