Teaching Mathematics - Functional Skills, Numeracy degree offered at Canterbury Christ Church University provides a framework for teachers to complete a Canterbury Christ Church University Diploma and meets the requirements for functional skills/numeracy teachers working in the Post Compulsory sector.
There is an emphasis on allowing teachers to develop their knowledge of issues in functional skills/numeracy through relevant academic study and interaction with other course members.
On most courses participants are drawn from a wide range of professional settings, so you will learn from the experiences of your peers and expand your professional network.
What can I do next?
Completion of the diploma, in addition to a recognised teaching qualification, allows numeracy teachers to apply for QTLS (Qualified Teacher Learning and Skills).
