Course content

If you're passionate about mathematics, and want to share your knowledge in the classroom, then our PGCE is perfect for getting started as a secondary mathematics teacher. We'll develop your confidence in maths as well as your ability to help young learners understand and appreciate the beauty of the subject. You'll have the opportunity to work with many different groups of learners in various situations, helping them build their maths skills and understanding of how they apply the subject to real life.

You will study the teaching and learning of mathematics at Key Stages 3 and 4, with some work on post-16 maths and the progression from primary school to Key Stage 3. Our highly-experienced teaching team will use a range of teaching methods to enhance your studies (particularly focusing on ICT), and by working closely with fellow students you'll share experiences and reflection to put your education into focus.
