The Physics with Mathematics PGCE helps students to develop the professional skills and knowledge they need to teach science and mathematics to pupils across the 11–14 age range, as well as teaching physics to pupils aged up to 18. We are committed to creative and interactive approaches to teaching science to promote student engagement and learning.

Degree information

Students will acquire a critical understanding of current debates and issues relating to physics and mathematics education, and will be guided and supported in developing their subject knowledge. We expect students to engage with reading and research into science and mathematics education and to regularly reflect upon their progress, towards meeting the teaching standards across the 11–18 age range.

Students undertake two level 7 (Master’s-level) modules of 30 credits each, totaling 60 credits. These can be carried forward onto full Master’s programmes at the IOE.

The Secondary PGCE consists of three core modules: two Master’s-level (level 7) modules, which are assessed through written assignments, and the Professional Practice module, which is assessed by the observation of practical teaching in placement schools.

Completion of the Professional Practice module and the two level 7 (Master’s level) modules (60 credits) will result in the award of a Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE). Completion of the Professional Practice module and one or two level 6 (undergraduate/Bachelor’s level) modules, will lead to the Professional Graduate Certificate of Education (PgCE). There are no optional modules for this programme.

Core modules
-Science Education in the Broader Context (30 Master's-level credits)
-Wider Educational Issues (30 Master's-level credits)
-Professional Practice

Placement
Students will undertake at least two placements (120 days) at a school or college, during which time their teaching practice will be supported by a school subject tutor and mentor.

During school placements, you may teach:
-Key Stage 3: science (including elements of physics, chemistry, biology) and mathematics
-Key Stage 4: science (all areas) or physics (depending on school placement)
-Key Stage 5: AS/A2 level physics

Teaching and learning
The Physics with Mathematics PGCE is delivered via keynote lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and directed study days as well as time spent in placement schools or colleges. Assessment is by practical teaching observation, assignments and a portfolio (which links with continuing professional development in the induction year).

OVERVIEW
There is a national shortage of science teachers, and physics teachers in particular, but we are helping to produce teachers of excellence who can inspire young people in the classroom.

We believe science is an exciting subject and the PGCE Secondary Education: Science with Physics course at Birmingham City University enables graduates to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to teach successfully, as well as explore the knowledge, skills and understanding young people need as part of their science education.

As well as taking advantage of the superb facilities at the faculty, which includes top-of-the-range ICT provision, trainees have access to school-based facilities, enabling them to train in the environment in which they will be working.


KEY FACTS
This is a professional teacher training course that leads to Qualified Teacher Status and is available at both Level 6 (H) and Level 7 (M).

The National College for Teaching and Leadership bursaries are available for trainees on eligible postgraduate courses in England who are not employed as a teacher. Bursary amounts will vary depending on teaching subject and degree class.

We are justly proud of our very high educational standards and facilities, including teaching rooms with interactive whiteboards, which enable students to get a genuine feel for teaching in a school even before embarking on teaching practice.

In the latest Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) Survey (2011-13 aggregated data) 95 per cent of Birmingham City University trained newly qualified secondary teachers rated the quality of their training good or very good.

All students are guaranteed outstanding support from both their tutors at the University – all of whom have been exceptional classroom teachers themselves – and from the partnership secondary schools, of which there are more than 200 across the Midlands.

Two thirds of the course takes place in school and we ensure that students are offered a number of placements in a wide range of educational establishments – at least two different schools, plus visits to other schools, including a primary school – so valuable experience is gained in a variety of settings.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
You must have a good degree (minimum 2:2 but 2:1 or 1st preferred) from a UK higher education institution or equivalent, with a significant physics or physics-related content, for example from engineering disciplines or materials science. You must have a GCSE grade C or above (or equivalent) in both English language and mathematics prior to application and if you are offered an interview you will take a written test to assess your standard of English.

For entry onto a teaching course from September 2014 you will also be required to pass the Skills Tests in Literacy and Numeracy. Please visit the Department for Education website for further information.

There is an expectation that you will have had some general experience of working with secondary age students in a school setting. In preparation for the selection interview stage of the recruitment process you are required to engage in a teaching episode, observed by an experienced qualified teacher.

As part of the selection procedure, the interview panel will expect you to demonstrate your knowledge of physical sciences and will assess personal qualities such as the potential to relate well to secondary age students, enthusiasm, sensitivity, communication skills and robustness and resilience for teaching.

Applicants must also meet The National College for Teaching and Leadership requirements for initial teacher training, which means being medically fit and successfully completing an enhanced disclosure via the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

COURSE STRUCTURE
This is an intensive and demanding course, which offers superb preparation for anyone who is committed to educating young people.

Central to the curriculum is the study of education, pedagogy and professional practice from both generic and subject-specific perspectives, which is delivered using a combination of workshops, lectures, seminar groups and individual study.

To complement this is a programme of science subject knowledge that supports the development of subject pedagogy. Specialist subject knowledge of science is up-dated throughout the course, with an emphasis on physics, to ensure trainee teachers are fully conversant with curriculum requirements. Science with Physics specialists will teach across science disciplines but with an emphasis on physics so that they are well prepared to meet the challenges of teaching science in the secondary sector.

ASSESSMENTS
Modules are assessed through a range of directed tasks and targeted assignments. Trainee teachers are also required to complete a profile of evidence towards the achievement of the standards required by the National College for Teaching and Leadership for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Evidence for the Professional Development Profile is verified by mentors.

FURTHER STUDY
Our MA Education and Masters in Teaching and Learning (MTL) programmes are designed to serve the continuing professional development (CPD) needs of teachers. Birmingham City University trained teachers with PGCE credits at level 7 benefit from advanced standing on these programmes.

EMPLOYABILITY
This is an “11-16” course with post-16 enhancement, which offers graduates maximum flexibility when looking for a teaching post.

Employment prospects are excellent based on consistently high employability scores and demand for Birmingham City University trained teachers.
