About the course
School Direct (Tuition Fee) is a school-led route into teaching at both primary and secondary stages. On this route you will join other student teachers on one of the PGCE programmes at the IOE while undertaking your teaching experience in a participating school. The UCAS application will go to the relevant school.
Well-qualified mathematics teachers are in high demand in London, the UK and across the world. The Mathematics PGCE programme at the IOE is rigorously informed by research, including developments internationally. Students learn how to make mathematics meaningful, interesting and fun and how to analyse their own and their pupils’ development.
Candidates whose application form shows that they meet our short-listing criteria will be invited to an Interview Day.
The selection process will usually involve:
*A classroom-based task
*Time with staff/departments
*A formal interview
*A written task
We recommend that you aim to gain some experience in a classroom prior to interview.
How school placements work
You will spend the majority of time in your main placement school but will also be required to carry out a 2nd placement at another school which is usually for a period of 6 weeks.
Your 2nd placement will provide you with an excellent opportunity to compare and contrast different approaches to all aspects of teaching.
The course fees for 2019/2020 are as follows:
Eligible UK and EU students can apply for a tuition fee loan to cover the cost of tuition fees from the government which you repay gradually through small monthly repayments.
You could be eligible for either:
- a scholarship of £22,000
- a bursary of £20,000
With a scholarship or bursary, you’ll also get early career payments of £5,000 each in your third and fifth year of teaching (£7,500 in some areas of England).
To qualify for a scholarship you’ll need a degree of 2:1 or above in maths or a related subject. For a bursary you’ll need a 2:2 or above in any subject.
You can’t claim both a bursary and a scholarship - you can only claim one.
Find out how to apply for a scholarship. You don’t need to apply for a bursary - if you’re eligible, you’ll automatically start receiving it once you begin your course. Find out how you’ll be paid.
