PGCE - Postgraduate Certificate of Education
Teaching (General) Mathematics Teaching Education Studies
The PGCE in Mathematics is a recognised teaching qualification aligned to the General Teaching Council for Northern Ireland professional competences which affords graduates ‘Eligibility to Teach’ (referred to in some other jurisdictions as 'qualified teacher status', QTS). The course is aligned broadly with the Northern Ireland Curriculum, supporting graduates in teaching Mathematics across the 11-18+ year age range. The programme aims to develop your competence and confidence in the teaching of Mathematics and in the general professional role of the teacher.
Our PGCE will appeal to you if you wish to move into teaching and if you are a graduate in Mathematics (or cognate discipline) or about to graduate in Mathematics (or a cognate discipline).
Extra places are reserved to prepare those who are interested in teaching their subject through the medium of Irish in Irish-medium schools. An additional certificate in Irish Medium Education (IME) is awarded in conjunction with St Mary's University College.
We are a General Teaching Council (GTCNI) accredited provider of Initial Teacher Education programmes. You will achieve Eligibility to Teacher/Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
