Secondary Mathematics – PGCE


Why study this course?

This PGCE Secondary Mathematics course will train you to teach in the 11 to 16-year-old age range and, by arrangement, can provide additional experience in the post-16 age range.

More about this course

This PGCE Secondary Mathematics course provides teacher training in the 11 to 16-year-old age range (Key Stages 3 and 4), leading to Qualified Teacher Status. On request, experience teaching 16 to 18-year-olds can also be arranged. 

Drawing on current debates in mathematics, we’ll introduce you to a range of interactive teaching styles including computer presentations and group work. This will help you raise pupil standards and participation in mathematics. If you need help improving your own mathematics knowledge, you can complete a Subject Knowledge Enhancement course.

Placement in schools will introduce you to teaching in diverse and multicultural urban environments. You’ll discover how these children learn and the techniques you can use to develop their mathematics skills.

Our high-quality training has enabled attendees of the course to secure work as teachers across London, as noted by Ofsted in our most recent inspection.
