Abstract

One recommendation of the Williams Review (2008) was that there should be a Primary Mathematics Specialist in every primary school within the next ten years. Research with one group of over 100 primary teachers following an Open University course suggests that the teachers who will be following the Primary Mathematics Specialists Programme will face a number of challenges including changes to their beliefs about the importance of subject knowledge and their pedagogic practices.
