Course content

An exciting cocktail of creativity, problem-solving and logical reasoning, mathematics is an essential part of many professions and everyday life. And from the early study of astronomy to the recent creation of Facebook, mathematics has always been at the heart of life-changing discoveries. Are you ready to empower the next generation of mathematical pioneers?

Mathematics teachers are in great demand and this course enables you to meet the national standards for the award of qualified teacher status. Combining theory and practice, you will comprehensively investigate the structure of the mathematics curriculum, considering numbers and algebra, shape, space and measures, and handling data. You will be encouraged to provide evidence of your own development in teaching and learning.

Under the guidance of our team of experts, students become involved in designing, producing, teaching and evaluating a range of materials currently used to support Mathematics in the secondary school.

We have excellent relationships with schools in London, Essex and Hertfordshire and during your studies, you will have the opportunity to undertake teaching placements in at least two secondary schools, allowing you the chance to acquire skills in the application of new technologies in teaching and learning. Schools are carefully selected to suit each individual and expose them to a wide variety of imaginative and thought provoking learning strategies. Key experts from our partner schools will always be on hand to offer invaluable mentoring and support.
