About

The Primary Education (SSPIP) Mathematics programme offered by the University of Birmingham is ideal if you want to teach young children and you have a strong interest in mathematics.

Overview

The Primary Education (SSPIP) Mathematics programme offered by the University of Birmingham lays the foundations for you becoming a future leader in mathematics. You will be prepared for employment in a generalist role at the start of your career, where you will ‘champion’ mathematics and inspire children and teachers. The course also prepares you for employment in a more specialist role, teaching mainly or solely mathematics.

The programme offers the equivalent of 120 credits and these may be used towards our MA in Teaching Studies. Additionally, the School also offers a number of specialised Professional Development programmes which will enable you to further develop your career.

Careers

We work closely with the University careers service and local councils in order to provide you with support for the job application process. Our success rate for completion of our primary courses and subsequent employment in schools remains consistently high.

Primary Mathematics Specialist students are highly employable. A majority of students gain employment in the local region, many of them choosing to remain in partnership schools. Many newly qualified mathematics specialists secure employment in a more generalist post at the start of their career, joining the mathematics leadership team and going on to lead mathematics in their schools.
