PGCE - Postgraduate Certificate of Education
Teaching In Secondary Schools Chemistry (General)
From rates of reaction to nanoparticles, chemistry looks at the structure of the materials that make up everything around us. As a teacher, you’ll inspire pupils to value their science education and open their eyes to the answers chemistry provides.
Our one-year Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) prepares you to teach the secondary science chemistry curriculum for the 11-16 age range. We’ll be there for you every step of the way as you work towards taking the lead in the classroom.
Our team will introduce the teaching methods and theory you need to develop into a competent, confident secondary school chemistry teacher. You’ll get support from your personal tutor whenever you need it, as well as guidance from your expert mentor and placement link tutor on placement.
What does it take to plan a lesson? How do you manage a classroom? Which teaching methods are most effective? Learn from our experts then apply what you’ve learnt to practice. During your 26 weeks on placement, you’ll plan, teach, and assess chemistry lessons with support from your school-based mentor.
Successful completion of the PGCE Secondary Science (Chemistry) with QTS (11-16) programme leads to recommendation for Qualified Teacher Status.
