Becoming A Maths Teacher

Postby kelly1989 on Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:33 pm

I have currently graduated in Sports Science with a 2:2 but decided half way through my course that it was actually Maths that i want to teach and not Physical Education. I undrestand to get on a Maths PGCE you need to have a relevant degree (although my degree involves a lot of maths i do not think it classes as a 'relevant degree') and an A-Level in maths which i also don't have.

I was just looking to see if anyone had any advice of the best way to go into teaching Maths whether it was to do an A-level and then hope a University takes me on with my degree or if there was any other way of going in to it?

Thanks in advance.

I would personally start from scratch since there are a limited number of alternatives out there tbh.

I aspire to become a Maths teacher. Currently doing QTLS. I am a Maths graduate.
Since I did not do my GCSE in UK, I do not know the GCSE curriculum structure.

When I searched for Edexcel past papers I could see
Mathematics A - Paper 1
Mathematics A - Paper 2
Mathematics B - Paper 1
Mathematics B - Paper 2

Which means, does a student have to write 4 Maths exams for GCSE?
When I looked at the Edexcel time table for June 2015, I could only see 2 papers (Maths A, Maths B)
on June 4th and June 8th. I'm a bit confused, Could you give me an idea about this please?

(I know about Foundation and Higher tiers. I am talking about Higher tier here)

Regards,
Martin
