PGCE - Postgraduate Certificate of Education
Physics (General) Teaching (General)
Welcome to the Swansea University Schools’ Partnership (SUSP/PYPA), an innovative collaboration of school and university-based staff working together to ensure that ‘Tomorrow’s Teachers’ have the skills and experience to make a difference to pupils in Wales.
Well-qualified Physics teachers are in high demand across the UK. SUSP has developed an innovative Secondary Physics PGCE programme that is designed to provide new entrants to the teaching profession with confidence in their subject knowledge and in their understanding of how to teach it. This programme will prepare you to make a positive contribution to the learning communities you will be joining. SUSP’s Secondary Physics PGCE programme is underpinned by regional, national and international research. You will learn how to make Physics meaningful, interesting and fun and also how to analyse your own and your pupils’ development.
SUSP’s integrated and rigorous PGCE programme will challenge you academically and professionally. The PGCE Physics programme aims to develop critical understanding of the nature of Physics and its position in the school curriculum. You will be encouraged to research and test your own approaches to Physics pedagogy to find those techniques that work best for you and for the pupils you teach. SUSP is committed to developing research-informed reflective practitioners who can demonstrate creativity and flexibility in their teaching so that learners develop their subject competence in an environment that cultivates enjoyment.
