Course content

Do you have a passion for engaging children, helping overcome their barriers and elevating their enthusiasm towards mathematics? 

Our PGCE (postgraduate and professional routes) will enable you to develop your knowledge, understanding and skills to teach in primary schools - particularly those in the urban inner-city. Here you will engage in core practice and learn the professional values of teaching.

The quality of teacher training in Primary education was rated as "Outstanding" in the Ofsted report for Initial Teacher Education 2016. Ofsted found that "Excellent use is made of specialist expertise within the partnership, to ensure that trainees are very well prepared to start their teaching careers."

Employability

Schools are keen to employ teachers at primary level with a deep understanding of mathematics and this is demonstrated by the 98% of our students who are employed within 6 months of graduation. 

As a subject specialist, you may well strive to become a mathematics subject leader or primary specialist as your career progresses. This focus on additional study in mathematics will give you a competitive edge in terms of employment opportunities and open up possibilities for career development.

On our PGCE you will cover all primary subjects with a focus on maths as a specialist route. Our programme will provide you with an understanding of the National Curriculum in all primary subjects and the essential learning needs of children.

Additional mathematics will focus on deepening your understanding at a primary level, not accelerating into higher mathematics. During your time with us, you will develop your professional values and practice so you can meet the broad demands of teaching.

School-based training

Our programme is run in partnership with schools. You will spend a minimum of 24 weeks in a primary school, as well as further opportunities in a range of educational contexts. In school, you will be trained to teach all subjects, with additional opportunities to focus further on primary mathematics to enhance your mathematical understanding.

Student support

Studies also take place on the university campus and cover all elements of the National Curriculum.

Our workshops are interactive and encourage you to work collaboratively. These include practical tasks and exploring theoretical perspectives. Opportunities are also provided for you to take an enhancement course in an area of personal interest or expertise, e.g. Special Educational Needs.

Our expert staff are trained primary teachers and are active researchers.

During the programme, you will be allocated a personal tutor who will support your studies. Your tutor will be on hand to offer both personal career and academic guidance. Individual support and designated workshops are tailored to meet the needs of each of our individual students in order to ensure high quality outcomes.

Ranking

Our primary students are the second most satisfied students in London and also voted us the second best provider in London (NSS 2016).

Graduates from this programme can pursue a teaching career in primary schools. Maths specialists should be able to develop a maths specific responsibility within the school, alongside their class teacher role.
