Mathematics (11-16) (AE33)
On successful completion of the course students are awarded QTS, PGCE, comprising 60 credits at Master Level 6.
Students are placed in two highly performing schools, mentored by good and outstanding teachers.
They will experience all aspects of school life which is invaluable when applying for future teaching positions.
Students will spend more than 120 days in schools on placement.
We arrange for students visit provision to increase their awareness of where children transition from and to (pre and post secondary), providing a holistic understanding of children’s progression.
Students will also have the opportunity to view best practice for SEN and EAL children.
Students will spend the vast majority of their time at Horizon Community College. After February half term students will spend 4 weeks in an alternative placement school.
The Mathematics Department at Horizon is absolutely committed to our vision of teaching maths for understanding. Our commitment to ongoing professional development is evident in our research driven CPD offer.
We also have a strong track record of developing our trainees, with high quality mentoring and a wealth of opportunities for further career development within the Department.
We create high quality schemes of learning to support all staff, focussing on full curriculum coverage and, in partnership with our feeder primary schools, ensure a purposeful and challenging transition for students from KS2 to KS3.
We also offer a rich variety of enrichment opportunities, such as Further Maths, UKMT and Pop maths, to help foster our students love of numbers. If you share a similar passion for the subject as we do, then please get in touch!
