Why complete an NPQ in Leading Behaviour and Culture

The NPQ Leading Primary Maths is the newest programme released by the DfE. The programme is designed to support teachers with learning how to use mastery approaches to teach maths effectively in the classroom. NPQLPM has been designed by experts in leading maths from our Maths Hub partners. Completing this programme will provide you with a firm foundation in leading and developing maths for your school.

NPQLPM will support you to:

  • Build on your previous mastery learning and further develop your skills as a subject leader.
  • Develop a positive culture for maths teaching and embed effective approaches across your primary setting.
  • Lead and develop teachers to: plan lessons so pupils build their knowledge, support inclusion of pupils, manage their workload, understand and use consistent maths vocabulary.


Who is this for?

NPQLPM is designed for teachers and leaders with responsibility for leading maths across a primary key-stage or school, or those who want to have this responsibility.

  • Teachers familiar with mastery approaches to teaching primary maths, who want to improve leadership skills in this area
