You’ll learn techniques to inspire students around maths, making it enjoyable and ensuring they’re equipped with skills they’ll need for in the future. You’ll teach across a range of ages and abilities on daily basis so we’ll train you to be handle changing effortlessly between number patterns and sequences to calculus depending on who you’re teaching.
After interview you may be advised you need to take a funded Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) course, which we offer in mathematics on 24- and 16-week routes before you start your PGCE (shorter courses of between two and 12 weeks may be available according how much enhancement of your knowledge is needed).
Our aim is to help you become a committed, confident and creative teacher so we’ll train you in the essential tools you need to kick-start your career in education. As you progress, you’ll increase your ability to handle the ever-evolving teaching environment, and by the time your course is complete, you’ll be in a position to continue developing your understanding, knowledge and skills throughout your professional life.
Assignments and school-centred activities are structured around the development of your School Experience Progress Journal (SEPJ) which demonstrates your progress against the nationally agreed competences (the Teachers’ Standards), which all teachers must meet throughout their career. A system of continuous review and assessment of progress in the SEPJ will support your growing ability to take responsibility for your own development.
