The Mathematics with Qualified Teacher Status programme is practically based, with 24 of the 36 weeks spent in our partner schools. University weeks are organised with half a day on General Professional Studies and two full days on Mathematics Education. Work is set to be done on the remaining days of the week which will feed in to the Mathematics Education sessions.
