If you are thinking of retraining as a Mathematics teacher, then this opportunity could be for you. The Open University offers a route to obtaining a qualification to teach Mathematics in Scottish secondary schools which is designed for people who are unable to access conventional full time face-to-face higher education. The programme has been in place since 2006 and the Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS) has paid tuition fees for eligible students.
The Open University Professional Graduate Diploma in Mathematics (PGDE) can be completed in either one year (full time) or two years (part-time); you can choose the option which best suits your circumstances. The course comes with the full support of an Open University tutor as well as a mentor in your placement schools. Practical placements in secondary schools will be arranged within each student's local area via local authorities.
