Summary

Inspire the next generation to appreciate, enjoy and deepen their understanding of mathematics by sharing your passion for the subject and training to become a teacher of mathematics

We’ve designed our highly-rated PGCE Secondary Education in Mathematics with QTS so you will graduate knowing how to devise and deliver interesting lessons that engage young minds and develop a life long love of mathematics.

The course has QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) built in, enabling you to apply for a position as a secondary school teacher during the course with confidence, knowing how to teach effectively.

Why Choose University of Cumbria Our PGCE Secondary Education in Mathematics is fully compliant with the Department for Education (DfE) requirements, so you can expect to do a minimum of 120 days in two contrasting schools giving you the essential hands-on experience you need for future employment as a teacher.

Plus, we ensure that our course gives you plenty of practical experience – whether delivering lessons, using technology in the classroom (ICT), assessing work - to prepare you to confidently step into and lead a classroom.

You won’t be dropped in the deep end. You will start by working with individual groups of pupils in school and gradually build up to the teaching of whole classes so you can develop the appropriate levels of learning in pupils required of you in the QTS Teachers' Standards.
