Here you can find out more about the mathematics specialist pathway.
The mathematics specialist pathway, leading to a PGCE in Secondary Mathematics, has a very practical focus. It will enable you to teach:
"The course was one of the hardest but most enjoyable things that I've done. The academic part was refreshingly practical and an excellent preparation for the classroom. It made me rethink how and why students learn."
Trevor, PGCE Secondary Mathematics (2007)
We aim to help you develop your professional skills in an informal and relaxed atmosphere. The secondary mathematics team at Kingston University provides a friendly and supportive environment, where you can share and learn with staff and colleagues alike.
We are proud of our supportive and open relationship with the staff in our partner schools. These well-established links enable us to provide continuous support and care for the trainee teachers on our course.
Mathematics facilities: We emphasise on the use of ICT in mathematics teaching, aided by our excellent ICT resources both in the School of Education and the on-site learning resources centre (LRC). Both the School and the LRC are well stocked with the most up-to-date software packages used in mathematics teaching, as well as a wide range of other teaching materials and resources.
You can also make use of the SMILE Maths Collection, housed in the LRC (for further information or to view the collection, telephone Faye Sisson on 44 (0)20 8547 7385 or email firstname.lastname@example.org).
Mathematics support: For those in need of further support with their mathematics, the Mathematics Enhancement Course is for those who have an A-level or equivalent in mathematics but have not studied the subject beyond school level. The course is a year in length and is supported by Kingston University, Brunel University, Roehampton University and St Mary's University College.
