Study Details

PGCE 1 year Full-time

At York you will join a highly committed group of trainee teachers developing their skills in the university PGCE partnership.  You will participate in university based session (including formal presentations, whole and small group discussions and practical workshops) led by experienced staff, guest speakers and teachers from schools.  The University based course is closely linked to a programme of classroom experiences in our partnership schools and in school you will benefit from a strong system of mentor support.  Your training will encourage you to reflect on what you learn and experience, so that you can make secure progress during the year. The course combines a practical approach with a strong theoretical basis and qualifies you to teach Mathematics at 11-16 (with post-16 enhancement).

Entry Requirements

The basic qualification is a degree or a degree equivalent relevant to the subject(s) to be taught. In assessing the appropriateness of degree courses where the degree title does not match a teaching subject, an applicant must be able to demonstrate that the degree contains sufficient study of the teaching subject.

Applications are welcomed from candidates who have done some teaching or have been employed in some other occupation, or who have done some voluntary service, either in this country or abroad.
