Course summary

Overview

Why study the PGCE Mathematics course?

The Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is the most widely recognised UK post graduate award and is transferable. It is accepted, across the UK and internationally, as an assurance that the candidate has achieved the high standard expected for entry to the teaching profession.

This course offers you the opportunity to learn how to teach mathematics to all ability ranges at secondary level. You will develop a good understanding of maths pedagogy and how to help children grasp complex ideas. Providing you with a solid foundation of professional awareness and understanding, the course will foster and develop your competence and confidence in imparting your subject knowledge to young people.

If your degree does not include enough mathematics, or if you just need a refresher course, the Department for Education sponsors several Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses. Newman’s SKE course will provide you with the opportunity to acquire enough mathematics to teach it to at least Key Stage 4 in a secondary school and could improve your chances of employment.

Teaching Methods and Assessment

Our lecturers and visiting teachers use a variety of teaching methods including lectures, seminars, workshops and special projects. Assessment is through coursework, presentations, project work and practical teaching ability.

Employability

Newman Initial Teacher Training graduates have a high employment rate; and are well respected in the region and beyond. Most students take up a position in teaching, although some pursue other careers using the range of transferable skills gained during study.

On completing the course and reaching the required teaching standards; upon graduation you will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status with the Department for Education, who confer QTS, and ready to start your first teaching job right away.
