Teacher Training Code
1 year full-time
Secondary schools need good Maths teachers. This exciting and demanding programme will prepare you to become an effective and high-quality Maths teacher, with a particular focus on the unique demands of working in a multi-ethnic London comprehensive school.
Why study PGCE (Secondary) Mathematics at Goldsmiths?
- Get to know the different parts of the Mathematics curriculum, and possible teaching approaches. You will also review your maths experience, and identify any gaps.
- You’ll have the opportunity to explore the use of Information Technology in teaching Mathematics, and explore different approaches to assessing pupils.
- Develop your skills in planning, teaching, and managing whole classes, and taking responsibility for them over a sustained period of time. This includes aspects of assessing, recording and reporting on pupils’ attainment, and catering for a range of achievement levels.
- You’ll learn about ‘whole-school’ issues, and about contributing to a school’s pastoral life – this will include a project on a whole-school or cross-curricular theme.
- Mathematics sessions at Goldsmiths will focus on broadening your knowledge of resources for teaching, longer term planning, and the post-16 curriculum.
