Primary Maths TLR3

    Hi all,

    Just after some advice. My other half has an interview for a TLR3 role on Friday - the purpose is to evaluate the teaching of maths across the school and raise pupil attainment and progress. He is currently maths lead for KS2 and has been for the last year. In his letter of application, he listed the impact he has had so far along with initiatives introduced etc along with a brief outline of his plans if he were to get the role.

    The interview is on Friday and he has been told to just be prepared to explain his ideas further if he were to get the role - ideas for the project etc. Just wondering if anyone has any idea of any other questions he could be asked in relation to the role?

    Thanks in advance!

    Make sure he's prepared for questions about the impact he has had so far (supporting what he has written in his application) and how he will measure the impact of any further initiatives, how he will quality assure what he puts in place, how he will get staff buy-in (if applicable), and so on.

    Is he currently KS2 maths lead without a TLR? In theory a TLR3 should be a backwards step from where he currently is. Is his school fleecing him?

    Thanks! The school currently don't offer any TLR's for subject leads at all - he is currently just on M4 and is maths lead!

    Yes he's being fleeced. Extra responsibilities outside the classroom should attract a TLR. Unfortunately this is an all too common model in primary schools, especially in the current funding crisis. Teachers being conned into doing extra work for no extra money. They will often be told that this is "expected", especially if you want pay progression.
    Generally the job description for a subject lead in Primary satisfies the STPCD criteria for a TLR

    At a push (a big push) you could argue that the "wider responsibilities" expected of teachers on UPS might just about extend to overseeing KS2 maths, but if he's only on M4 at the moment then it does sound like they're taking the mick a bit.
