BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Secondary Education (QTS)



Animal Data


This course will give you both mathematical knowledge at degree level and the professional qualification of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which will allow you to take up a teaching post within a secondary school. You will undertake periods of University-based learning and you will spend at least 120 days divided between a range of different schools at different times during the three years. Teaching on the course reflects a variety of methodologies that will prepare you for life in the classroom including teacher-led debates, pupil-led exploration, peer-group discovery and the provision of individual targets. You will be assessed in a variety of ways including written assignments; classroom based investigations and other school-based activities, and appraisals of practical teaching skills.

The mathematics element of the degree starts by reinforcing the mathematical foundations you will have studied at previous levels and gradually introduces more advanced and specialised content areas. Just like any other mathematics degree programme you will study traditional subjects such as Algebra and Calculus during every year of the programme. What sets our programme apart is the emphasis placed on the key areas of Mathematical & Statistical Modelling, Operational Research and Statistical Cybermetrics.

This course complies with the statutory guidance from the Department for Education for Initial Teacher Training courses.
