Entry requirements

Each application is considered on its own merits but it is generally expected that at least 50% of your degree is in Mathematics. If this is not the case but you do have a good grade in Mathematics at A level (or its equivalent), it is possible that you may be considered for PGCE after successful completion of a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course.

Course content

At York you will join a highly committed group of trainee teachers developing their skills in the university PGCE partnership. You will participate in university based session (including formal presentations, whole and small group discussions and practical workshops) led by experienced staff, guest speakers and teachers from schools. The University based course is closely linked to a programme of classroom experiences in our partnership schools and in school you will benefit from a strong system of mentor support. Your training will encourage you to reflect on what you learn and experience, so that you can make secure progress during the year. The course combines a practical approach with a strong theoretical basis and qualifies you to teach Mathematics at 11-16 (with post-16 enhancement), providing opportunities for you to develop your particular interests in the different age ranges and across the spectrum of abilities.
