PGCE Secondary Mathematics

Course Description

The one-year PGCE is, by necessity, an intensive and highly demanding course and prepares you to teach children designated 11-16 with the option of receiving enhancement at post 16 level; successful completion of the programme enables the University to recommend QTS (Qualified Teacher Status).

Trainees enjoy a variety of educational experiences, including a subject enrichment week 'Mathamagic', working with primary and secondary pupils, looking at physical, practical, engaging and collaborative mathematics activities and competitions.


Entry Requirements

Minimum of 2:1 honours degree. The content of the degree should be appropriate to the secondary school curriculum in mathematics, usually at least half of the degree content is mathematics; applicants whose degree is in another subject, but have A-level mathematics (or equivalent) are accepted on to the course and are usually expected to complete a mathematics enhancement course to enrich and deepen their subject knowledge prior to the start of the PGCE. GCSE grade C or above in mathematics and English language (or equivalent). Two weeks experience in a state secondary school. CRB disclosure is required.
