The new Part-Time Maths course is an innovative, flexible, two-year part-time training programme aimed at those with family commitments who are ambitious to train in the classroom but need the flexibility to remain in work.
Altogether, over the two years, trainees will have more than 120 days in school for each option. Professional learning days are included in the training days, although there may be an occasional day when Trainees are required to attend an event such as an Employment conference with peers across all programmes.
Our hybrid approach to learning combines traditional classroom experiences and digital course delivery. All sessions are taught by practising teachers.
Trainees follow a carefully designed plan to support their learning. The course is structured to make sure that Trainees take on classroom responsibility in a systematic manner. The programme will build your confidence, pedagogy and subject knowledge to give you the necessary skills to become an effective classroom practitioner. Trainees will become proficient in their ability to plan, deliver and assess their subject across two key stages whilst developing generic principles such as behaviour management, the use of metacognition and meeting the needs of all learners.
The part-time Maths course is QTS only. This is because the programme has extra subject-knowledge input and additional focus on practical teaching application.
This course covers curriculum design, development of teaching materials, planning classroom activities and classroom management. Trainees will work with tutors and fellow Trainees to develop innovative and exciting ways of delivering your knowledge of Maths in the 11-16 context with post 16 enhancements.
The subject specific sessions will extend subject knowledge and give Trainees the skills needed to teach Maths throughout the curriculum.
The subject specific training will cover:
Misconceptions and effective questioning strategies
Adaptive teaching strategies
KS3 and GCSE curriculum planning
