The National Centre for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching and Learning (NCE-MSTL) at the University of Limerick is pleased to announce that a fourth cohort for the two year part-time Professional Diploma in Mathematics for Teaching (Level 8)/Dioplóma Gairmiúil sa Mhatamaitic don Mhúinteoireacht has been approved by the Department of Education and Skills.

The Teaching Council has confirmed that teachers registered under Regulation Four of the Teaching Council {Registration] Regulations 2009 successfully completing the diploma will meet the Teaching Council’s post-primary curricular requirements for mathematics.

The aims of the programme are to ensure that successful candidates:

  • acquire the extensive and complex integrated knowledge base including mathematical and pedagogical knowledge that is necessary for effective mathematics teaching at post-primary level with special reference to Project Maths
  • demonstrate an ability to integrate this mathematics knowledge for teaching into professional practice as mathematics teachers
  • develop a high standard of practical competence in mathematics teaching as reflective practitioners during their programme of study

We are happy to report that the Teaching Council has confirmed that teachers registered under Regulation Four (Post-primary) successfully completing the Diploma will meet the Council’s requirements for Mathematics.

The programme is free to eligible post-primary teachers and fully funded by the Department of Education and Skills as part of the national strategy to support the implementation of Project Maths and improve standards in mathematics education in post-primary schools by up skilling out-of-field teachers of mathematics.
