New Specialist Leaders of Education in
Maths needed for funded work
There is an exciting new career development opportunity for teachers interested in becoming Specialist Leaders of Education (SLEs) for maths for 2018 – 2020. SLEs are “outstanding middle and senior leaders in positions below the headteacher, with at least two years’ leadership experience”.
OTSA has recently submitted a bid to the DfE for money from the Strategic School Improvement Fund to support 20 primary and 3 secondary schools across the county. The aim of the project is to improve outcomes in mathematics for KS2 to KS4 disadvantaged pupils through the expansion of teaching for mastery in supported schools, sustained by increasing the number and quality of maths SLEs across Oxfordshire.
If successful, the bid will fund training in maths mastery for the SLEs from one of the local Maths Hubs during autumn 2018 and will then fund their deployment into supported schools from spring 2019 until March 2020. The commitment from SLEs would be 1 day to attend the project launch on Thursday, 13th September 2018, 4 days to attend training then 1 day each half term for school support.
There are already 5 maths SLEs in Oxfordshire but we need to recruit more with the specific purpose of spearheading this project.
