Program description

Subject Knowledge Enhancement Mathematics - Short Course

Subject Knowledge Enhancement courses (SKEs) are about improving subject knowledge in preparation for a Teacher Training course. You'll be taught by experienced teachers of mathematics and will spend 2 of the 12 weeks in a school, where you'll have the opportunity to apply your subject knowledge. You'll study using interactive methods, helping you to form links with colleagues which will be invaluable throughout the PGCE program. This course is available to PGCE offer holders at London Metropolitan University, or at other universities whose offer stipulates completion of subject knowledge enhancement.

Admission requirements

In order to be accepted onto the SKE you will need have accepted a place on a ITT Mathemathics course either at London Met or elsewhere. The offer must be conditional subject to completion of the SKE Maths course.

Program content

The twelve-week course will be based at the University for four days each week Tuesday to Friday, with the exception of a two week placement in schools which will be arranged for you. You will be following a course which focusses on the content of higher GCSE level and early A level Pure Mathematics and Statistics.

There will be mathematical modules on Algebra of Polynomial Functions and Equations, Trigonometry and Continuous Functions, Calculus, Data Handling and Euclidean Statistics, and Geometry. An introduction to educational issues will include reading, films, and an introduction to current issues in education policy. There will be a 2 week placement in a mathematics department in a secondary school.

You will learn mathematics in a variety of ways including mathematics software, group work and by following targets tailored to your own needs. Learning mathematics in these ways will give you first-hand experience of the pedagogies which you will use in the PGCE course. The school placement will give you the chance to see mathematics teaching in a school and you will, by completing specially designed evaluation tasks, develop reading and writing skills necessary for the PGCE. Throughout the course there will be regular tutorials to monitor your progress and provide help and guidance to make the London Met maths enhancement course a successful first step in your teaching career.

Scholarships & funding

Full funding is available to eligible applicants. For more information about scholarships, please visit the university website.

Continuing studies

You'll be able to move onto the PGCE program upon successful completion of the SKE course.
