Course content

The PGCE Mathematics at King’s gives trainees practical and theoretical ideas on the teaching of mathematics as well as modelling ways in which mathematics can be taught in the classroom. Trainees benefit from the college’s unique mathematics free school for sixth form students, King’s College London Mathematics School, with opportunities to work alongside and learn from teachers at this school.

King’s has established strong links with excellent partner schools and can offer trainees a rich and diverse experience of curriculum planning and delivery beyond the experience gained from their two placement schools.
