We aim to model how you might engage pupils in the science classroom
Classrooms are complex and dynamic places. Becoming an effective teacher is more than just ‘transmitting knowledge’ or `telling pupils how to do it' or about numerical outcomes. Education encompasses a whole range of attributes and requires teachers to be at the cutting edge of their practice. Through dynamic and innovative teaching, we will support and encourage you on your journey to becoming an effective science teacher to inspire a new generation of world-changers.
Our secondary science PGCE programme is grounded in the view that the process of gaining qualified teacher status with a PGCE must essentially be an educational one. We encourage you to form your own opinions on education through first-hand experience and reflective thinking. We anticipate that you will develop qualities that will enable you to become teachers who will not only be outstanding classroom practitioners, but will also be in a position to participate in and influence the development of science education for the future.
The pedagogy within a science classroom is perhaps somewhat different to what you might see within an English or maths lesson. Our programme focuses on modelling the science classroom in workshops; we will raise lots of questions and encourage you to think critically about what you see and experience in our workshops. We will encourage you to reflect on “what works for you” and incorporate some of these ‘active’ teaching and learning strategies into your own practice. Once in school we hope you will try them out, evaluate and reflect on them to develop your own teacher identity.
As teachers you will help to shape future education policy and practice. We will set out to enable you to make informed decisions. To this end we will promote discussion and get you to question your thoughts on a range of issues central to science teaching; what is science, what is subject knowledge, what knowledge do we need to teach a scientific idea well, do theories link with our own personal viewpoints? These are questions to which there are no set answers. Through our sessions we aim to encourage students to search for their own order and understanding from within. Secure, reflective and questioning science teachers are those who are likely to become true educators of young people – teachers who encourage pupils to think, question and understand.
During the science subject studies sessions, we will focus on the ideas and principles underlying effective teaching. Two broad themes are identifiable through our subject sessions; learning and practical work. Each of these has a key place within the science classroom but what does rigorous learning and effective practical work look like? We will revisit these key areas throughout the programme both at University and in school; taking into account that lessons should be engaging and relevant to every pupils’ needs.
Our programme is an 11-18 programme (science teachers need to be able to teach at least two sciences up to and including GCSE level), so our subject sessions cover pedagogical subject knowledge in aspects of chemistry, biology and physics.
During the first term, you observe, participate in and take responsibility for lessons in one of our partnership schools. You will be allocated a school mentor who will be your “go to” person on a daily basis to facilitate your learning and progress within the classroom. Following an induction period, during which you find out about the school, its pupils and surrounding area, you will take increasing responsibility for the teaching and learning work of particular classes under the supervision of the regular class teacher. Your University tutor will monitor your progress using our virtual learning environment (learn.gold) and visit you during your first school placement.
A professional network of school and University based colleagues will support you throughout the entire programme at University and on your school placements.
We might sum up our programme as having its feet firmly rooted in school science, with its head in theory and with a strong body connecting the two, combined with the realisation that there are many places in which the figure can stand.
