Designed for those who want to teach pupils aged 11-18, the Secondary Mathematics Education teacher training programme is a full time one year postgraduate course and includes study around teaching methods, school-based work and whole-school issues. This teacher training course develops a deep understanding of issues and complexities which surround the teaching and learning of mathematics. We wish to develop you as a thinking teacher who can be aware of choices in how to teach mathematics and make informed decisions about how you work with students. Our sessions will rarely be of the form of a lecture, instead we use activities and discussion as the main way of working.
Through our teacher training courses we will help you become aware of issues relating to planning lessons, assessment, the difference between telling students information and teaching students, standard misconceptions students have about mathematics topics, how different approaches to teaching a topic can change the learning experience for students and how choice of resources and technology can change the sort of mathematics with which students engage.
We have an excellent record of students gaining teaching jobs at the end of the course. Our teacher training programme is designed to meet recognised teacher standards in the UAE and UK and time is spent in placement schools to develop the necessary experience and skills.[/vc_column_text]
