O que eu aprenderei?

The Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) route, is a full time, campus-based conversion course for those who wish to teach Mathematics in secondary schools. It is suitable to those who have studied a degree with less than the 50% of mathematical content of an undergraduate mathematical degree as well as career changers.

The SKE Mathematics course at Birmingham (to be comfirmed in December 2020) is a highly rated subject knowledge enhancement route for those who wish to teach Mathematics. The course will help you to increase your confidence by developing a deep understanding of Mathematics at A level and beyond. The majority of the SKE course will be University based with face to face sessions with experienced Mathematics teachers. There will also be opportunities to visit schools in order to gain experience of mathematics being taught in a secondary school allowing students to reflect on developing good practice in teaching and working with school students.

The subject enhancement course at Birmingham works on two levels: the development of personal mathematics knowledge, and also thinking about teaching and learning issues whilst being a learner 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. The SKE course is suitable for career changers as well as those who have recently graduated. Former students include those who have worked in law, banking and marketing as well as those who have worked in schools as teaching assistants.

It is possible to follow a 24 week SKE programme or a 12 week programme depending on the need of each student. You are welcome to apply at any time and if successful will be placed onto a suitable programme of study.

Following successful completion of the SKE course, you will automatically be eligible to take up your place on the Postgraduate Diploma Secondary Education (QTS) Mathematics course. You may be eligible for a scholarship of £26,000 in lieu of the bursary from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) in collaboration with the London Mathematical Society (LMS), the Mathematical Association (MA), Maths in Education and Industry (MEI) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS).

Employability

Many local schools have a very high regard for Birmingham mathematics PGDipEd (QTS) students and particularly value students who have completed the SKE course and have been successful on their PGDipEd (QTS) course.

We have been running this pre-ITE Mathematics course for over 30 years and have an excellent record of students securing jobs at the end of the course. Many of our ex-students get quickly promoted to more senior roles such as Head of Department and many become mentors in partnership schools.
