Secondary Education (Mathematics)

The programme leads to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS); schools use a variety of approaches; the course allows each individual student to discover how best to use themselves and their talents to teach mathematics effectively to those children with whom they work, and allows each student to develop flexibility of approach and learn new skills; the course aims to use the strengths of the group of students to support each other through: working on issues of teaching and learning; doing mathematics together; developing and extending their knowledge of mathematics at their own level; looking at activities for the classroom, to see what the children might experience; sharing technical skills such as using computer equipment and packages; working in a variety of schools with different practice and comparing and contrasting those experiences through exchange visits with Hungarian students of mathematics teaching and other international perspectives.
