If you’ve got an undergraduate degree and are striving to become a secondary school Maths teacher, then studying our PGCE Secondary Education with QTS (Maths) will help you on your way.You’ll develop your subject specialist knowledge alongside hands-on classroom experience.

A significant amount of your learning will take place whilst on placement within one of our partnership schools.You’ll benefit from being able to observe experienced teachers, gain practical hands-on experience and mentoring to help you develop into an outstanding and successful teacher.

Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. During the year you will become familiar with the overall curriculum and the national strategies for teaching mathematics. You’ll learn how to plan and teach interesting and creative lessons which encourage enquiry and discussion and foster pupils’ enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Successful completion of your PGCE course prepares you to start your first teaching year (NQT year) within a secondary school setting. Our course is designed to prepare you to teach pupils in the 11-16 age.
