Course summary

Imagine helping children be the very best they can be from the very start of their academic life and ensure they have the essential maths skills needed for everyday life – you can as a primary school teacher with a specialism in mathematics.

We’ve designed our highly-rated PGCE General Primary with QTS: Mathematics to support your journey all the way from student through to achieving status as a newly-qualified teacher.

Learn all the knowledge of PGCE General Primary but with a pathway in mathematics, so that you can hone your pedagogy in this area and be a specialist in school able to raise children’s achievements in maths, to get the best out of their learning.

You’ll learn through theory and plenty of first-hand experience how to work within the National Curriculum framework, the concepts and inhibitions of maths, and confidently devise and deliver interesting lessons to engage young minds across a broad spectrum of subjects in primary school.

And, because our course has QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) built-in, you can apply for a position as a primary school teacher the minute you graduate.

Course summary

Over half the course will be spent working with children on an assessed placement, with school-based enrichment activities alongside your university-based study. You'll take three placements across a variety of schools and settings, building a wealth of experience to help advance your future career.

We'll teach you to help children get enthusiastic about learning through mathematics. You'll benefit from the experience each student brings to the course, which will lead to a greater appreciation of the range of learning needs you will eventually encounter in school. We're looking for those committed to being good teachers, not your advanced mathematical abilities, by developing those who wish to provide the ultimate maths experience to students.

Your Career with a PGCE Teaching Qualification

This course can lead to a fulfilling career as a primary Maths teacher. Nine out of 10 of our graduates go into a professional teaching career or further education within six months of graduating.

As this is a PGCE, it also includes some work at masters level, leading to 60 credits that can count towards an MA in Education.
