Strongly aligned to the new curriculum in Wales, our PGCE Mathematics programme will give you the range of teaching skills and knowledge needed for you to qualify as an effective teacher of mathematics.

This knowledge, combined with your own enthusiasm for the subject will give you the opportunity to bring Maths to life for all of your pupils. Our PGCE is challenging, but motivating and invigorating, combining practical strategies and skills with academic enquiry and theory.

Our respected tutors have considerable knowledge of, and are active researchers within, the fields of Mathematics, Numeracy and Problem Solving, and our university-based curriculum sessions include discussions of current academic research.

You will benefit from our involvement in developing the new curriculum Area of Learning and Experience: Mathematics and Numeracy and from our representation on the board of the National Network of Excellence in Mathematics.

You will also have the opportunity to participate in national conferences such as such as the British Society of Research into Mathematics. You will study various aspects of pedagogies for teaching across the secondary age-range including the examination groups for GCSE and A levels.

Throughout the pathway, you will have the opportunity to work with other students in a collegiate and supportive learning environment through exchanging different ideas and discussing different approaches to learning.

As a part of the Mathematics and Numeracy Area of Learning and Experience, you have a particular responsibility for developing numeracy across the secondary curriculum, and there will be opportunities to explore a range of cross-curricular approaches.

Inspiring the next generation of mathematicians is an essential aim of our mathematics pathway and you will be involved in Mathematics Master classes with local Year 9 and Year 10 pupils in conjunction with Swansea University.

These sessions provide you with the opportunity to gain additional experience, which can help support your personal statements when applying for first posts.
