Course summary

Overview

Learning maths can be exciting for some and challenging for others, but the enjoyment of maths can be strongly linked to how it’s taught. This is where you can truly make a difference.

A mathematics teacher is a varied role that includes the need to educate children and young people through bringing Mathematics to life, inspiring, enthusing and motivating them to explore the subject’s potential at an appropriate level. You will encourage and support pupils and learn how to make mathematics accessible to all.

Brunel’s PGCE in Secondary Education (Mathematics) is designed to prepare you to teach pupils aged 11 to 16 in line with the National Curriculum for Mathematics (DfE, 2013) with a focus on developing their maths skills in preparation for compulsory exams and also for life beyond school.

The need for qualified, enthusiastic teachers with an understanding of the demands society places on young people has never been greater. The opportunity to educate children and young people, and learn from them in return, is immensely rewarding.

Whether it’s helping someone to have the confidence to move up to higher problem solving, inspiring a budding accountant or maths genius, or creating masters of fractions and percentages in so many work places, your maths teaching will leave a strong legacy.

Careers and your future

A Brunel PGCE with recommendation for QTS is a recognised symbol of high quality Initial Teacher Education (ITE). This is demonstrated by Brunel’s outstanding employment rates over time and feedback from Brunel alumni student teachers, our partnership schools and Ofsted inspectors.

Brunel PGCE graduates have gone on to work in our partnership schools, and many in schools where they undertook a placement experience. This allows the department to retain links with former students and often they become school-based mentors for Brunel PGCE students. The department also has a network of alumni in positions of responsibility in schools across the country.

After you graduate, your relationship with Brunel doesn’t stop there. As alumni, you can remain involved in the Partnership in a range of ways including mentoring, and can also sign up to receive invitations to Brunel public lectures, Education Department research seminars, events and steering groups, to ensure you continue to develop through a community of professional practice within, and beyond the school in which you work.
