PGCE Secondary Mathematics with QTS


Course Description

The Faculty of Education has a longstanding national reputation for providing high-calibre initial teacher training with over 20 Secondary specialisms available. We have a well-established partnership with over 800 secondary schools and colleges across the North West region and beyond.

Our PGCE Mathematics has an outstanding reputation for producing high-calibre Mathematics teachers. Mathematics teaching is a stated government priority nationally and a shortage subject, meaning successful trainees are highly employable. Attractive bursaries are available from the National College for Teaching and Leadership.

Subject to confirmation of DfE funding, we usually run free pre-entry Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses for national priority subjects, including Mathematics. These will be identified at interview for applicants who need support in some areas and confirmed with a PGCE place offer.

A minimum of 120 days school-based practice training is combined with university-based training and periods of independent study. Trainees are supported throughout by university and placement mentors.

Professional skills tests in Numeracy and Literacy:
All PGCE applicants will need to pass pre-entry Professional Skills Tests in Numeracy and Literacy. The Faculty of Education offer support sessions to help applicants prepare for tests, but tests must be booked externally, further details at https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/passing-the-skills-tests
