Maths (2MQK)

Mathematics, a universal language that enables understanding of the world, is an integral part of the curriculum.

Beyond the study of numbers, shapes and patterns, it also provides important tools for work in fields such as engineering, physics, architecture, medicine and business. It nurtures the development of a logical and methodical mindset, as well helping to inculcate focus and the ability to solve all manner of problems.

Attainment in the subject is also the key to opening new doors to further study and employment. However, despite its importance, for many the subject remains mysterious and difficult, the preserve of those who seem to be ‘naturals’.

The education inspection framework (EIF) makes it clear that schools are expected to ensure that the mathematics curriculum ‘helps pupils to gain enjoyment through a growing self-confidence in their ability’ Ofsted Curriculum Review Series: Mathematics (2021).

The mathematics training curriculum is designed to support you to deliver high quality teaching in any school context. It provides you with the best available evidence as well as practical support as you begin to develop your skills as a mathematics specialist.

The curriculum is designed to extend your interest, knowledge and confidence in mathematics as a subject within the curriculum and to extend your development of an analytical and critical attitude towards the teaching and learning of mathematics.

In order to become an effective classroom teacher, trainees must be able to critically and realistically evaluate their own work, listen to the advice of others, and ensure progress through continuous reflection. The development of these skills runs through the entire course.


Courses can fill up at any time, so you should apply as soon as you can.
