This course will give you both mathematical knowledge at degree level and the professional qualification of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which will allow you to take up a teaching post within a secondary school. You will undertake periods of University-based learning and you will spend at least 120 days divided between a range of different schools at different times during the three years. Teaching on the course reflects a variety of methodologies that will prepare you for life in the classroom including teacher-led debates, pupil-led exploration, peer-group discovery and the provision of individual targets. You will be assessed in a variety of ways including written assignments; classroom based investigations and other school-based activities, and appraisals of practical teaching skills. The Mathematics content of this programme is significant. During the three years, you will share many classes with students enrolled on the B.Sc. (Hons) Mathematics programme. Indeed the level of mathematics involved will enable you to pursue alternative career options outside of teaching should you so desire. The expertise and transferrable skills you will receive will leave you well positioned for any career associated with the mathematical sciences.
