How can a Maths SKE help me?

 

The Maths subject knowledge enhancement (SKE) course caters for Primary Maths, GCSE and A level topics which are organised into units making it easy for our tutors to put together a bespoke online course allowing us to cater for all abilities and starting points.

 

We offer the full range of SKE course lengths, from 8 to 28 weeks.  

 

 

Students and tutors like how our courses introduce the important principles that underpin all Maths; the depth and detail of the course that allows interested students to immerse themselves in the subject and the engaging resources available throughout our suite of maths courses that help our students gain theoretical mathematical skills helping them with the transition into teaching up to A level in school.

 

Something that our students often praise us on after completing one of our maths SKE courses is that they leave with not just new maths knowledge but also:

 

• improved mathematical understanding and technique
• acute logical and philosophical thinking and problem-solving abilities
• the ability to process, interpret and analyse information

Entry Requirements

We welcome students from a wide range of backgrounds and starting points.  Our courses reflect this in that we are able to start students from foundation maths moving up to more advanced mathematic technique over the length of their SKE course.  We have a middle entry programme to support those with higher mathematic ability and experience who would like to bypass the foundation stage and get stuck in and we also have students that join us with secure maths at GCSE wishing to complete A level and above.  There is something for everyone.

 

Students that join us with an already good understanding of Maths are given the chance to study it at a more abstract level.  On our more advanced SKE maths courses, we provide the mathematical theories that form the foundation for further studies in Maths or another Maths based subject.

All levels catered for on the maths SKE

 

The following list of topics cover the main headline topics.  In practice, they would be subdivided into refined units of study, pieced together by your personal tutor after assessing and taking into account your subject knowledge audit.

Bio

Hi, my name is Dan and I've been working as a tutor with Eureka since October 2016. I've also been a classroom teacher since 2009 and, during that time, have worked in three Ofsted outstanding schools. In addition to my classroom duties, I also held the role of Head of Key Stage 5 Mathematics.

Like many new teachers, I entered the profession with a lot of prejudices about mathematics education - what it should be and how it should be delivered - which were mostly based on my own school experiences. After working with thousands of students over the years I have found that mathematics needs to be different things to different people and I have enjoyed seeing my own views challenged and expanded by the many young people with whom I've had the pleasure of working. I think it is this aspect of the subject, above all others, that I enjoy sharing and exploring with our pre-ITT students.

Amanda Kay

I have over 20 years teaching experience and during this time I have gained a wealth of knowledge and expertise that I have enjoyed sharing on the Maths SKE programme here at Eureka Online College.  


In my previous role as a tutor for the North West Kent SCITT teacher training scheme, I mentored trainee teachers, guiding and advising them on all aspects of teaching, which allowed me to further develop my mentoring skills.

 

I was an examiner for many years. I found this invaluable experience to aid my teaching. It gave me a great insight into students’ common errors and major misconceptions in Mathematics. This also aided me in my role as Assessment Coordinator where I analysed student performance to inform future planning. 

 

During my career as a maths teacher, I have held numerous other roles including; Numeracy Liaison Officer, Primary Link Teacher and SEN advisor for Maths. I have also been heavily involved with the LEA in the southeast of England – advising, liaising, networking and contributing to the development of Maths teaching ideas and resources in light of continual curriculum changes.

Lee Surtees

With over twenty years of experience in the classroom, I started my career as a teacher and like most, I soon rose to the Head of Department and Director roles within my faculty.

 

However, it was through my passion for supporting people that I followed a career path becoming an Advanced Skills Teacher. This allowed me to stay at the heart of classroom teaching and avoid management that takes too many very good teachers away from our young learners.

 

During this period of my life, I worked with a considerable number of young teachers, specialising in Newly Qualified Teachers and Initial Teacher Training, mentoring and coaching through the early years of their careers.

 

As I evolved into Senior Leadership, I worked as a Lead Practitioner of Mathematics in two different schools, still with a heavy focus on NQT and ITT, but always with the focus that it was about learning and teaching. Learning first facilitated by good teaching. I learned very early that I could significantly affect thirty children in my charge. However, I could affect even greater numbers of young adults through the Continuous Professional Development of teachers young and old; experienced and not.

 

Today my main focus is working with trainee teachers, working for a number of Teacher Training Organisations. Within this role I contribute heavily to Subject Knowledge Enhancement for prospective teachers and those already qualified but in other non-shortage areas. I retain my passion for education in this role, firmly believing that by affecting young teachers in their development, in turn I will affect countless young adults as they develop.

 

Outside of teaching I am married, with two young children. I am a very keen follower of sport and fitness. I follow football mainly, coaching, watching and playing, when my legs allow me to.

 

Look forward to working with you!!
