Primary Mathematics (Subject Specialist) PGCE

Our PGCE Primary Mathematics (Subject Specialist) routes will enable you to develop the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to teach in primary schools, with specialist training in primary mathematics.

You will be required to train in two consecutive age phases, Key Stage 1/Key Stage 2, or Key Stage 2 (7-9, 9-11). However, maths content will range from FS - KS2, with elements of Key Stage 3 also included within the specialist provision. This is so that you will have a clear understanding of progression in mathematics.

After being formally assessed against the national statutory requirements, you can be recommended for the award of Qualified Teacher Status. The Postgraduate certificate also provides an opportunity for Master's-level credits, which you can gain through the submission of appropriate assignments. You will be registered initially on the Professional Graduate Certificate in Education, but there will be opportunities to transfer to the Postgraduate award and gain Master's-level credits.

The programme is run in partnership with schools. You will spend a minimum of 24 weeks in a primary school, including extended experience in two schools, plus further opportunities in a range of educational contexts.

Students are required to study the listed compulsory courses and you will have opportunities to focus on teaching and learning in mathematics in several of the courses listed below.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To develop practical knowledge and theoretical understanding required to work with primary school children
  • To train you to teach in two consecutive age phases
  • To provide you with an understanding of the National Curriculum and learning needs of children
  • To develop your professional values and practice so you can meet the broad demands of teaching
  • To allow you the opportunity to take on mathematics responsibility within a school setting.
