Course Summary

The Secondary Sciences (Physics) course is for people who want to become qualified teachers.

The PGCE Secondary programme is an innovative and intensive nine month course preparing graduates for the demands of teaching in the Secondary sector. You will be awarded a PGCE and recommended for Qualified Teacher Status, enabling you to teach in schools on completion of the course.

Assessment

Students will be assessed via academic assignments and assessment of their teaching.

Students will submit an academic assignment for 20 credits at master’s Level (Level 7) in each of the three modules. The assessment varies for each submission and will include both written elements and presentations.

You can exit the PGCE courses with one of two awards. The Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is awarded to those students who gain less than 40 Level 7 credits, but who pass all modules, gaining 60 or 40 Level 6 credits. If students achieve 40 or 60 Level 7 credits and pass all the modules, they will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE). All students completing a PGCE will also be recommended for QTS.

Modules

This module involves work in studying key concepts that underpin the various curricula and syllabi for you subject. The sessions allow discussion of different pedagogies and allow reflection on differing school approaches to the subject.
