A great Mathematics teacher can play a pivotal role in a secondary school child’s life. On this PGCE Secondary Mathematics course at the University of East Anglia you’ll spend your days stimulating young minds and watching your pupils grow in confidence, so they can achieve their full potential.


Our one-year, full-time PGCE Secondary Mathematics programme at the University of East Anglia will equip you with the skills, experience and knowledge you need to teach mathematics to pupils aged between 11 and 16 – with the option of additional experience of A-level mathematics teaching. Upon successful completion of your PGCE, you’ll graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and 90 Master’s credits. 

Mathematics can be a difficult subject for school children. There’s often a belief that you’re either good at it or bad at it, and there is a lack of awareness about the huge range of real-world applications it has. 

Within our course you’ll learn and create your own new ways to make mathematics interesting, exciting and relevant. You’ll consider how games, practical activities, interactive teaching, ICT, problem-solving and investigations can support your teaching and stimulate your pupils’ mathematical thinking. You’ll be guided and encouraged to adopt strategies that lead to a rich and rewarding experience for both you and your pupils.
