Course summary

Why study this course?

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

London Met has official partnerships with many schools in London, ensuring you have a continuity of support throughout both your theoretical learning and hands-on practical experience.

Trainees on our PGCE Secondary courses attain high results, with 95% achieving an Ofsted good or outstanding grade by the end of the course.

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 attend our short Subject Knowledge Enhancement course.

The London location of your placement 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.

Assessment

Your assessment will consist of four elements:

School placement A
School placement B, where your teaching ability will be assessed in relation to the standard for Qualified Teacher Status
a Professional Practice Portfolio which is compiled across the year, detailing personal experiences and reflections on your development as a teacher, largely in relation to your practical teaching experience
the Educational Research Assignment, which allows you to explore an educational issue

There are no examinations.

You'll share feedback with your colleagues on the course, completing a weekly reflection and contribution to online discussions that will further develop your understanding of the secondary teacher role.

Professional accreditation

This course is accredited by the Teaching Regulation Agency (TRA).
