Course description

Secondary PGCE courses - The University of Manchester

This course will train you to teach mathematics across the 11-16 or 11-18 age range. It will prepare you to teach the National Curriculum, GCSE and A level. Completion of the 10 month course leads to both a postgraduate qualification and qualified teacher status (QTS).

The course combines master's level academic study of mathematics education with a range of practical experiences. Approximately two-thirds of your time will be spent in partnership schools and colleges developing practical teaching skills with the support of trained mathematics mentors who are experienced teachers. The University works with a large variety of schools, comprehensives, grammar schools, specials schools, pupil referral units and sixth form colleges, which allows us to personalise your school experience to your individual needs.

Your practical training will be underpinned by education theories, ideas and concepts, and by enhancing your awareness of current educational issues and developments.

Mathematics is an exciting and creative subject and you will construct your own understandings through working collaboratively on engaging, challenging tasks and reflecting on your experiences.

What our students say:

Excellent tutors, very experienced and knowledgeable about all areas of teaching and education.
