Course summary

The Level 6 Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (Post-16 Education and Training) (Mathematics) (Full Time) is designed for beginning teachers of mathematics students in the post-16 sector. An honours degree (2:2) is required for entry to the programme.

This full-time course aims to provide a fully immersive teaching experience by giving you access to employment and professional development opportunities in the Education and Training sector.

You will be placed for a minimum of 100 hours (at least 50 hours in any one semester).

You will achieve a sound conceptual and practical understanding of how to influence the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in mathematics across multiple contexts in the post-16 sector.

You will gain an in-depth knowledge of the key theoretical frameworks that underpin the acquisition of mathematics and explore how learners engage in mathematical reasoning. You will also investigate and enact a range of approaches to support emergent mathematical resilience and promote mathematically resilient behaviour in mathematics instruction.

There are opportunities to investigate international perspectives relating to mathematics learning and pedagogical models, with a particular emphasis on international differences in mathematics pedagogy.

Through innovative teaching and learning strategies such as collaborative teaching and in-the-moment coaching, this pre-service, full-time course aims to model practices that you can enact in classrooms across different curricula and changing contexts in the sector.
