Course detail

You will gain a postgraduate certificate (60 Masters level credits) which can be transferred if you undertake further Masters study.

In module 1, you will explore the mathematics within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and primary National Curriculum, and into Key Stage 3. You will identify key mathematical ideas and processes in the curriculum and trace how these progress. The aim is that you develop deep understanding of primary mathematics.

Module 2 focuses on pedagogy. You will consider teaching approaches that promote children’s conceptual understanding of and fluency in primary mathematics. There will be an investigation of mastery of mathematics. You will evaluate a wide repertoire of teaching approaches critically, including those used in other countries.

In module 3, you will develop the knowledge and understanding needed to work with your colleagues. You will consider strategies to support other teachers’ and teaching assistants’ subject and teaching knowledge in primary mathematics. The module will also explore how to lead whole school initiatives and lead effective, collaborative professional development.

Assessment

You will be required to submit three assignments of 2000 words each. These assignments are designed to support you in developing mathematics in your own setting. For example, you will investigate progression from the early years across the primary phase in one area of mathematics which you wish to develop in your school.

As part of this assignment, you will examine how to support progression in children’s learning of their mathematics. A second assignment will explore one approach to teaching mathematics such as the use of manipulatives or mathematical talk. The final assignment will support you in working with your colleagues to develop their teaching of mathematics. You will be offered tutorial support for all assignments.

What can I do next?

The programme is written to support you in developing your career as a teacher who can offer specialist knowledge and support others, in your school or across groups of schools.

After completing the Post Graduate Certificate you will have the option to transfer the credits and complete the MA in Education.
