Primary Education (with Mathematics)

This programme will train you to teach across the curriculum, with mathematics as a specialist subject. You will gain the confidence and key skills to teach the subject throughout the primary age range. You follow the same programme as other PGCE (Primary) students, but also receive specialist training in your mathematics pathway. You will also undertake a Mathematics in Action research project in a placement school. This includes taking part in sessions that highlight the global aspect of mathematics, including the cultural, historical and literary aspects of the discipline.

Entry requirements

Applicants without the required GCSE qualifications in mathematics, English and science can be offered an equivalence test.

Assessment methods

For the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), you will also be formally assessed on your competence in the classroom and your ability to meet Department for Education Professional Standards including computer-based tests in literacy and numeracy which are now a condition of entry to the programme.
