A great Mathematics teacher can play a pivotal role in a secondary school child’s life. You’ll spend your days stimulating young minds and watching your pupils grow in confidence, so they can achieve their full potential. It’s a challenging career, but also one that’s also incredibly rewarding.
Our PGCE Master’s programme closely interweaves school and university-based training. Over 38 weeks, you’ll spend at least120 days (minimum 24 weeks) on school placement,and 60 study days in structured learning at UEA.
Our course will provide you with the opportunity to research and evaluate the latest thinking in good teaching practice. It will help you understand how pupils best learn mathematics, so that you can support and guide them – and optimise your teaching. It will also allow you to develop your own strategies to make teaching maths an engaging and positive experience.
Degree Subject Mathematics or a related subject.
Degree Classification 2:2 or above preferred.
Applicants are required to have achieved a degree or its equivalent* by the beginning of the PGCE programme in September. A first degree in Mathematics or a related subject is required. As a general guideline, approximately 50 per cent of the degree should be relevant to the subject you will teach.

You will graduate able to teach pupils to see mathematics as an exciting subject that engages and stimulates the mind as well as being a vital part of the modern world.
You will succeed on this course if you want to encourage others to find the same enjoyment and enthusiasm for mathematics as you have.
You will be learning and creating ways to make mathematics interesting, exciting and relevant. You will be asked to consider how games, practical activities, interactive teaching, ICT, problem-solving and investigations work as teaching styles to stimulate mathematical thinking. You will be guided and encouraged to adopt strategies that lead to a rich and rewarding experience for you and your pupils.
You will also cover wider issues of classroom practice. Behaviour management strategy is a key element within this and you will be supported in developing your own personal style. You will find that generic behaviour management systems and techniques are essential; but how you use them will depend on you and the context in which you are teaching.
