About

The university is a strategic partner for the GLOWMaths Hub, one of 35 UK-based maths hubs. The hub connects mathematics education professionals to develop and spread excellent practice. As a trainee maths specialist, you will have the opportunity to learn from best international practice, for example the England-China project, where teachers from Shanghai have worked alongside local schools to develop a mastery approach to mathematics teaching and learning.

Choosing to study the maths specialism route means training to teach children aged 5 to 11 years with a focus on developing your skills in teaching maths in your second and third years, through university and school-based sessions. Your final year brings together the STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths) and you will undertake an action research dissertation exploring children’s learning in maths. 

Through the course, particular attention will be given to developing your ability to plan creative learning opportunities and to tailor teaching to meet individual needs, with the aim of enabling children to master the primary maths curriculum.
