The National Catholic Education Commission (NCEC) has engaged Ochre Education to deliver comprehensive curriculum resources for Years 7 and 8 mathematics and we are looking for expert teachers to support the development of these resources.

The teachers selected to develop the resources will be drawn from the pilot dioceses and will be employed directly by Ochre to complete the development work flexibly outside of school-hours in development sprints in Terms 1 and 2 2024.

The Mastery in Mathematics project will deliver three strands of work:

  • curriculum maps to support schools’ planning
  • adaptable and editable classroom materials
  • professional learning to support teachers to implement resources with rigour and fidelity.

This will include around 216 lessons, and additional resources to support intervention for Year 7 and 8 students who have gaps in foundational numeracy skills. All lessons embed high-impact, evidence-based teaching practices. Resources will be mapped to the Australian Curriculum Version 9.0, the new NSW Syllabus, and the Victorian Curriculum version 2.0.

An expression of interest (EOI) process was open until 20 November. This process is now closed.
