Subject

Mathematics

BSc (Hons) Mathematics Education (11-16 years) with QTS is a fast-track route into teaching. It takes just three years to be a fully qualified teacher of mathematics, compared to the four years it takes to do a degree and then a one-year PGCE.

This course will deepen your knowledge, skills and love of learning mathematics, whilst training you to become a teacher at Secondary or College level. The aims of the course are to develop an in-depth understanding of school level mathematics and the ability to teach conceptual understanding, whilst considering some of the challenges that children and young people face when learning mathematics.

Whether you have recently studied mathematics, or are thinking of changing your career, one of the advantages of a three-year teaching degree is that you will have time to develop the subject knowledge required to be a successful teacher, over the course of the programme.

The School of Education have recently been voted 2nd in the U.K (1st in England) for it's Undergraduate Education courses according to the Guardian University League Tables, 2020. We are extremely proud of this accolade.

According to our most recent Ofsted report, some key strengths of our provisions are strong communication and positive relationships between the University and its partner schools, and the commitment of trainers in partnership schools to the all-round development of the trainees. Our comprehensive courses will give you the skills needed to make a real difference in educating the next generation, as well as thrive on a personal level with a rewarding career.
