Course Summary

Why choose this course? Physics

This course combines theory and practice of education to prepare you to teach your specialist science pathway (biology, chemistry and physics) in the 11-16 phase as well as being able to teach across all science subjects. During the course you will develop your knowledge of how pupils learn science, how to plan effective lessons and practical’s; and how assessment can improve learning and teaching in science. You will develop as a reflective teacher who makes informed decisions about how to teach science.

Want to make a difference to the lives of young people in the classroom? Train to teach in one year with our PGCE Secondary course. Our small cohorts ensure you have the personalised support you need to succeed in your future career as a teacher.

We will prepare you to teach secondary students with additional opportunities to develop your ability to teach at sixth-form level. This course will enable you to become an effective, inclusive and evidence informed teacher.

Assessment

You will not be required to take any exams. Your academic work will be assessed through coursework, such as essays and presentations.

At the end of each school placement, your teaching will be assessed in relation to the Teachers' Standards (DfE, 2011). You will receive a report that summarises your practice alongside targets to support your development in your next placement.

Modules

This module focuses on developing your ability to teach, assess and undertake your professional responsibilities in your chosen phase of education. It is part based at the University, where lectures, seminars and online learning will provide you with research, theory and practice based insights into effective learning and teaching. It is largely based upon your practice in school and settings, where you receive formal training, experience of working alongside professionals, experience of being the lead practitioner in a classroom/setting and experience of the wider aspects of being a teacher.
