Pathways are available in Art and Design, Drama, English, Geography, Mathematics, Music, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. You are taught by a wide range of experienced practitioners who provide rich and varied insights into subjects and their teaching.
The programme prepares you for classroom teaching and involves you in scholarly activity and research. You may accumulate 30 or 60 masters-level credits during the PGCE year that can contribute towards an MA Education. Central to this programme is a belief in the holistic nature of teaching. Rather than separate ‘theory’ and ‘practice’, we provide an integrated programme of school and faculty work, building upon our solid partnership with schools.
During your induction you will experience practical sessions to develop confidence in the classroom. You spend two-thirds of the PGCE year in partnership schools, supervised jointly by school mentors and a faculty tutor.
