Course content

Staffordshire University achieved top marks in the last OFSTED inspection report for its PGCEs in Design and Technology and in Information and Communications Technology. This award, delivered by the same team, is designed to allow graduates with an appropriate honours degree to train at postgraduate level to become a secondary school Mathematics teacher.

You will leave this Teacher Training course with a PGCE qualification. This can be awarded at 3 levels dependent upon performance during the training year, either 30 (Professional) or 60 or 90 (Postgraduate) M level credits, in addition to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), the required qualification to teach in England.

The PGCE at Staffordshire University offers specialist support and expertise from tutors who are at the forefront of developments in Mathematics. It is characterised by small class sizes allowing effective links with the schools in our partnership.

The course aims to develop your professional competencies in the creation and delivery of programmes in secondary education, and to develop the wider professional knowledge and skills expected of a qualified teacher.

This is a 36 week course. The equivalent of 24 weeks (120 days) is spent in 2 carefully selected placement schools and 12 weeks in the university.
