How you learn

Watch lecturer Heather Wain talk about this course.

All our courses are designed around a set of key principles based on engaging you with the world, collaborating with others, challenging you to think in new ways, and providing you with a supportive environment in which you can thrive.

This rounded course allows for rewarding individual and collaborative study alongside school placements from your first year. As well as developing an in-depth knowledge of Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 (GCSE) and post-16 mathematics, you'll learn how to effectively impart this knowledge via teaching theory lessons and school-based experience.

You learn through:

  • lessons from mathematics tutors and education specialists
  • school placements from early in the course, with at least 24 weeks in total
  • advanced modules preparing you for the different stages of secondary teaching
  • small groups and a collaborative atmosphere
  • research, practical work, presentations and written assignments
  • academic tutorials

Work placements

Starting from one day per week in your first year to longer periods in your second and third, you will work in schools to gain practical experience vital for teaching. You will be assigned a school-based mentor to help you hone your practical skills and apply your theory - helping you to work with individual students up to full classes. Sheffield Hallam has strong links to regional secondary schools to ensure your training is of the highest quality. Many of our graduates attain full time employment at their placement schools.


Future careers

The majority of our graduates go directly into employment as qualified teachers, and the course's employment record currently stands at 90%. A number of key transferrable skills are also developed throughout the course allowing for alternative progression or career routes.
