Course content

This course leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the 11-to-16 age range, which qualifies you to be a teacher in secondary schools in England and Wales. Where possible, we also give you the chance to gain experience in the 11-to-18 age range.

Successful education is built on strong subject teaching. Learners need highly skilled specialist mathematics teachers to inspire and challenge them.

Good maths teachers are always in demand. In fact, more teacher training places were allocated to mathematics in 2014/15 than any other subject (source NCTL 2015).

It means that when you train to teach the subject, you could be eligible for the highest range of tax-free training bursaries – or a prestigious scholarship from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.

A career in teaching mathematics offers the job satisfaction of giving all young people the chance to conquer a subject that's integral to their long-term success.
