Mathematics Enhancement Courses

Discussion in 'Mathematics' started by PenB, Sep 5, 2011.

  1. I know that Sheffield Hallam University offer MECs
    of varying length - I'm not sure if they offer distance courses
    but it may be worth asking them.

    Could also just teach yourself Maths A-Level will be far cheaper to.
  3. You could do the Open University Certificate in Mathematics which is what they would get you to do if you were doing a PGCE with them and needed a MEC. The cert in maths is made up of two modules mst121 and MS221. It is possible (though quite time consuming) to do both in the same session. The OU session runs from feb to oct so you would not be able to start a pgce until you had completed these - delaying your pgce start until september 2013!

    MEC places for jan 2012 are likely to be scarce - they get booked up well in advance.
  4. But few pgce providers would accept this as sufficient!
