Course Summary


The course is aimed at graduates who have a real passion, enthusiasm and commitment to joining the teaching profession as a primary teacher with maths specialism, and who might want to become a leader in mathematics across a school setting.

Through our PGCE we will help you build on this passion for teaching children in early years up to year six not only in maths, but also wider subjects. On successfully completing your PGCE, as well as pursuing your teaching career and moving into completing your NQT induction, there is also potential for you to engage in further study for a full Master's and on to a Doctorate in Education.

This course is designed to support you in gaining a PGCE Primary and achieving the standards to be a Qualified Teacher, with a focus on primary mathematics.

Your future career

Following successful completion of this course, the usual next step is to seek employment as a newly qualified teacher and to successfully pass that part of your induction into the teaching profession. From there, your teaching career can take you on to a very rewarding and exciting professional journey involving learning and teaching, leadership and management, research and advisory roles. There is also potential for you to engage in further study for a full Masters and on to a Doctorate in Education.
