Course summary

Course description

  • PGCE Secondary (Mathematics with Economics) will train you to become a Mathematics with Economics teacher across the 11-16 or 11-18 age range, and being qualified to teach both these subjects will increase your employability.
  • It will prepare you to teach the National Curriculum and related national strategies, GCSE and A-level.
  • Completion leads to both a postgraduate qualification and recommendation for qualified teacher status (QTS).
  • University-based sessions will enable you to reflect on teaching methods and will give you creative and innovative ideas to take into the classroom.
  • We also use the expertise of experienced teachers from our partnership schools to complement the teaching of University-based sessions. This includes sessions led by subject mentors, who will help you develop your subject knowledge and provide advice about teaching methods.
  • We will help you to transform your subject knowledge into teaching skills and educational theory into practice.

Aims

You will:

  • spend approximately two-thirds of your time in schools and colleges developing your practical teaching skills;
  • be assigned a mentor, who will help you plan lessons and develop marking and assessment skills;
  • observe and teach classes under the guidance of an experienced teacher.

Teaching and learning

The structure of our PGCEs includes both school-based and university-based learning.

On our secondary PGCEs, around two-thirds of your time will be spent in secondary schools, academies and colleges on placements.

The course is run in partnership with schools and colleges drawn from a wide area, including Bolton, Bury, Cheshire, Deeside, Lancashire, Manchester, Merseyside, Oldham, Rochdale, Salford, Staffordshire, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Warrington and Wigan

The University's partnership schools are highly committed to giving you the best possible experience whilst you are on your school placements, giving you the opportunity to put into practice all the knowledge you have acquired from sessions held at the University

When on placement, you will observe and teach classes under the guidance of an experienced teacher. You will also have a mentor to help you to plan lessons, deal with marking and assessment, and improve your teaching skills

Peer observations of lessons will enable you to participate actively in your own and your fellow students' development as teachers. You will be provided with a significant amount of responsibility to develop your own teaching style, set targets, take your own initiatives and evaluate your own work in planning, teaching and assessing.

Career opportunities

Completing a PGCE is one route to becoming a fully qualified teacher.

This form of teacher training is recommended for anyone with an undergraduate degree who is looking to gain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).

You need QTS to teach in a state-maintained or special school in England and Wales.

Whilst other routes to gain QTS exist, they do not all come with the postgraduate qualification of a PGCE.

A PGCE from The University of Manchester is a valued qualification regionally, nationally and internationally.

When you study a PGCE with us, we help you prepare for a successful career in education.

You will be given clear direction, advice and support when making applications for teaching posts and our employment rates are consistently high.

In addition to this, a PGCE qualification can count as 60 of the 180 credits required for a Master's degree, and The University of Manchester offers a range of postgraduate Education courses should you wish to continue your professional development by completing a Master's as you progress further in your career.
