Sussex Maths Hub aims to help schools and colleges lead improvement in mathematics education across the region. They seek to harness maths leadership and expertise within the area, to develop and spread excellent practice, for the benefit of all pupils and students.

Our work takes many forms and includes face-to-face CPD and online support. Sussex Maths Hub run several projects each year which enable teachers and teaching assistants to work collaboratively with the support of ‘Local Leaders of Maths Education’ (LLME), who facilitate the professional development.

Key Professional Development Offer:

  1. Mastery Work Groups: These groups focus on the mastery approach to teaching mathematics, which emphasise deep understanding, fluency, and problem-solving. Teachers participate in collaborative workshops, classroom observations, and discussions to implement mastery techniques effectively in their classrooms. There are dedicated work groups for primary and secondary teachers.
  2. Subject Knowledge for Teaching Mathematics (SKTM): Sussex Maths Hub offers opportunities to strengthen teachers' and TAs’ mathematical subject knowledge which is tailored for the primary and secondary phase, ensuring that staff have the confidence and competence for the key stages that they teach.
  3. Post-16 Development Programs: For educators teaching A-level and other post-16 mathematics courses, Sussex Maths Hub provides professional development opportunities to support educators in this phase.
  4. Networking and Collaboration: Through regular meetings, conferences, and online forums, Sussex Maths Hub fosters a community of practice where educators can share resources, discuss challenges, and stay updated on the latest educational research and innovations.
