BA PRIMARY EDUCATION WITH MATHEMATICS (QTS) XG11
Full Time: 3 Years
Study BA Primary Education with Mathematics Specialism (QTS) and discover how you can champion mathematics within primary education and build pupils' confidence as mathematicians.
This course will enable you to get a job as a primary school teacher following graduation. There is a high demand for specialist primary school teachers and many of our graduates go on to become subject leaders. Furthermore, the Institute of Education is one of the top departments in the UK and has strong links with local schools.
You will divide your time between studying modules on professional skills and curriculum subjects, and developing your knowledge of mathematics. The former will introduce you to the core National Curriculum subjects, including Information and Communications Technology (ICT). You will develop skills essential to the role of a teacher, including leadership, classroom management, and evaluation and assessment. You can then put these skills into practice through professional placements, which take place throughout the course.
Additionally you will study professional legal requirements, and investigate the role of the teacher and how children develop. In mathematics you will study both pure and applied aspects, and build on your knowledge each year.
Maths needs champions within primary education, and you will develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes that will aid you in this. This includes topics such as building students' confidence as independent mathematicians, and international perspectives on the teaching and learning of mathematics.
Finally, there is a key component within the Mathematics Specialism for you to develop leadership skills in order to lead mathematics in primary schools.
You will have the opportunity to carry out placements throughout this course. These will take place within local schools that the Institute of Education has active relationships with. Whilst there you will be mentored by a teacher and linked to a University tutor, who will provide you with additional support.
During your first year you will attend a weekly placement, which will familiarise you with the daily routine of the classroom and link in with your professional modules. For example, you may have to complete an observation for an assignment. You will also complete a block placement during each year of the course.
You will spend four weeks in a Key Stage 1 (KS1) setting during your first year, seven weeks in a KS2 setting in the second year, and an eight-week placement in a Key Stage of your choice during the final year.
