Course summary

This course leads to the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) for the 11-to-16 age range, which qualifies students to be a teacher in secondary schools in England and Wales. Their challenge is to help young people recognise how the science, design and technology, computer science, engineering and mathematics they study at school or college can lead to rich and varied career pathways. This complexity offers an enormous opportunity to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the subject to engage young people and show them how physics is central to everyday life and needn't be hard to learn.

To pass this PGCE and be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status, students have to demonstrate that they have met the Teachers' Standards. While the course is modular, the emphasis is on the whole process of their development as a teacher. There is ongoing assessment, charting the often subtle transformations in knowledge and understanding, and practical skills.

Students may decide to undertake further study at the University of East London, either at the end of their course or after gaining teaching experience, perhaps specialising in Special Educational Needs or taking this MA Leadership in Education. This also offers the opportunity for doctoral study to further develop teaching knowledge and expertise.
