Certificate in Education (Post-16 Education and Training) (Mathematics)(In-Service)

The Level 5 Certificate in Education (Post-16 Education and Training) (Mathematics) (In-Service) is designed for teachers of mathematics in the post-16 sector.

This Level 5 in-service (whilst teaching), 2-year part-time course is appropriate for the post-16 education and training sector. A degree is not required for entry onto this programme.

A minimum of 100 hours of relevant current group teaching over two years is required.

You will achieve a sound conceptual and practical understanding of how to influence the quality of teaching, learning and assessment in mathematics across multiple contexts in the post-16 sector.

You will gain an in-depth knowledge of the key theoretical frameworks that underpin the acquisition of mathematics and explore how learners engage in mathematical reasoning. You will also investigate and enact a range of approaches to support emergent mathematical resilience and promote mathematically resilient behaviour in mathematics instruction.

There are opportunities to investigate international perspectives relating to mathematics learning and pedagogical models, with a particular emphasis on international differences in mathematics pedagogy.

Through innovative teaching and learning strategies such as collaborative teaching and in-the-moment coaching, this in-service, part-time course aims to model practices that you can enact in classrooms across different curricula and changing contexts in the sector.
