About

The Secondary Education (QTS) - Mathematics programme offered by the University of Birmingham tries to develop a deep understanding of issues and complexities which surround the teaching and learning of mathematics.

Overview

The Secondary Education (QTS) - Mathematics programme offered by the University of Birmingham received the top grade in all areas in the last Ofsted subject inspection.

At the University of Birmingham we believe we should provide student teachers with the highest level of teacher training possible, and this is why we offer a Post-Graduate Diploma in Education (PGDipEd also known as a PGDE) rather than a Post-Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). Both qualifications lead to Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) but the PGDipEd also offers the equivalent of 120 credits towards a master (out of 180 credits), which makes it a highly rewarding course by combining both theory and practice. 

Careers

Many local schools have a high regard for Birmingham mathematics PGDipEd (QTS) students and we have an excellent record of students gaining jobs at the end of the course. Many of our ex-students are now Heads of Departments in our partnership schools.
