The University requires all applicants for PGCE programmes to demonstrate that they meet the national entry requirements, as set out by the Department for Education. One of these requirements is that the applicant has achieved a standard equivalent to a grade C in the GCSE examinations in English, mathematics and science. Applicants must possess a relevant subject degree (2:2 Hons min.) or equivalent qualification by the time the programme starts. Applicants without a relevant degree but with a good A level in mathematics will also be considered. Applicants are also required to have gained a minimum of ten days recent state primary and secondary school experience (prior to applying) and to have passed the skills tests in literacy and numeracy.
Months of entry
The 7-14 PGCE in Mathematics is an innovative and intensive nine-month programme that prepares graduates for the demands of teaching. On successful completion of the programme, you will be awarded a PGCE and recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), enabling you to teach in schools. The course is organised in partnership with schools in Kent and Medway where you will spend 24 out of the 36 weeks teaching in two different schools.
