Postgraduate Certificate in Education PGCE

 I have been associated with King's Education department for a very long time now. In the late 80s, in the throes of completing a maths degree and knowing that I wanted to go into teaching maths, I chose King's for my PGCE based on reports of their impassioned teaching and their significant track record of classroom-based research on mathematical learning and assessment. I loved the year, and proceeded to work in London comprehensive schools as a mathematics teacher in 1990.

Seven years later, and having pondered the idea of doing a Master's in Mathematics Education for a while, I chose King's again, now as an adult part-time student. For me, the Master's provided access to recent research in mathematics education, and opened up debates around issues relating to the inception and impact of national policy on classroom practice. I followed the Master's with a full-time PhD, supervision throughout the 4 years was exemplary.

I left England shortly after completing the PhD, and armed with references from my supervisors, gained a post-doctoral research post in mathematics education at Wits University in Johannesburg. I continue to collaborate with King's staff on research, and would not hesitate to recommend King's for anyone considering postgraduate study.
