About this INSET

Mastery Across the Curriculum unpicks the complexities of “mastery” by providing a wide range of practical activities and strategies to encourage children to think for themselves.

With a focus on English and Maths and links to teaching and learning strategies for the wider curriculum, you will return to your classroom with a deeper understanding of the term “mastery”, along with a renewed vigour for supporting children on their mastery journey.


This course is appropriate for primary and secondary schools.
