Primary with mathematics
If you have an A Level in Mathematics at Grade B (or equivalent) you could be eligible to receive the £6000 bursary for primary with mathematics. With this option, we can offer additional training in mathematics whilst preparing you to teach the full primary curriculum so that you develop a mathematics specialism. Eligible applicants should still apply for the PGCE Primary Education (QTS), and highlight their eligibility in their personal statement. Our most recent OFSTED report (Dec, 2016) highlighted that mathematics is a strength across our primary provision, and that trainees and NQTs develop a secure understanding of complex areas of the mathematics curriculum.
To develop well-informed thinking on teacher identity and empowering pedagogies, and to understand how making meaningful connections and interrelationships across the curriculum can enrich and enhance learning and teaching within and across all subjects.
To critically engage with inclusive practice, utilising a range of teaching and learning approaches, activities and resources that engage all children actively in learning both within and outside the classroom.
To critically reflect on cultural responsivity and the power of learning beyond the classroom, and to understand that all children must have access to a range of cultural and environmental experiences as an part of their learning and personal development. Consider how all these aspects contribute to being an effective, influential teacher and learner.
The purpose of this module is to enable you to prepare for School Based Training 2 and to provide the basis for planning and teaching during your final placement. During School Based Training 2 you are placed in a partnership school in a contrasting setting and in a different Key Stage you experienced in School Based Training 1. During School Based Training 2 you will be expected to take on substantial responsibility for whole class teaching.

If we have insufficient numbers of students interested in an optional module, or there are staffing changes which affect the teaching, it may not be offered. If an optional module will not run, we will advise you after the module selection period when numbers are confirmed, or at the earliest time that the programme team make the decision not to run the module, and help you choose an alternative module.
