Primary with Maths
Training Provider Code: 25F
SCITT Course Code: G069
Mode of study: Full time
Start date: September 2021 – July 2022
Our target award for all our candidates is a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) with qualified teacher status (QTS.) The PGCE offers sixty credits at master’s degree level (approximately a third of a master’s degree.)
The course is solidly based on the Professional Standards for Qualified Teacher Status and thus covers all the varied demands made on the modern primary teacher. In addition, there are extra modules to support the development of the skills required to lead Mathematics in a primary school setting. We are greatly helped in this by the school-centred nature of our course. Our on-going coaching follows a cycle of briefing, modelling, practice, and reflection, which makes for very effective learning and allows us to work to our key belief that, if our trainees are to attain their full learning potential, it is essential for us to model best practice.
It is also worth noting that, even though trainees will be working at post-graduate level and in a highly critical and analytical manner, most of our course content is directly and practically relevant to making them first-rate classroom practitioners.
All of the specialists and teacher coaches working with our trainees have established and successful track records as primary practitioners. All are still full-time classroom teachers or head teachers and all still regularly work teaching primary age children.
