Degree information

Students will understand why history is taught in schools, how pupils learn and make sense of the past, and how to teach history in an exciting way that develops learners. There are five key themes underpinning the programme: “diverse histories”, “history for all”, “historical thinking”, “engaging with history” and “becoming a professional history teacher”. These themes reflect our location in the capital, the wide range of schools and students that we work with, and our ambition to engage, challenge and enlighten all learners.

Students undertake two Master’s-level (level 7) 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 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 in this programme.

Core modules
-History in a Wider Context (30 Master's-level credits)
-Learning, Teaching and Assessing History (30 Master's-level credits)
-Professional Practice

Placement
Students spend most of their time (120 days) in schools, working with history mentors who support them through school placements. The Professional Practice module is assessed through these placements, associated tasks and a portfolio.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered via keynote lectures, subject lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and directed study days at the IOE, as well as time spent in placement at the host school or alliance. Assessment is by the observation of practical teaching, assignments and a portfolio (which links into continuing professional development in the induction year).

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as history teachers and heads of department in schools, while others have jobs as history educators in museums and archives. Graduates in this area can also be found working as senior leaders in schools.

Employability
A PGCE from the IOE carries considerable currency in schools, which alongside the quality of training you receive, puts you in a strong position in the employment market. Last year, all those students who sought employment in a school were successful. We expect 100% success rate in gaining a post in a school by the end of the year.

Why study this degree at UCL?

History, according to the current national curriculum, “should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past”. Our aim is to equip students to do just that, developing their ability to plan meaningful historical experiences for pupils in the 11-16 age range, to teach effectively and to assess their own and their pupils’ achievements.

Students will be joining the largest History PGCE programme in the country, allowing them to benefit from a team of tutors with a wide range of expertise and interests. Students will also be able to develop strong peer networks across tutor groups and share ideas, resources and advice. The IOE History PGCE offers students unique opportunities such as placements at museums or other historical sites, in order to develop understanding of learning history outside the classroom.

The IOE has one of the largest groups of university-based history education specialists in the world and hosts the Centre for Holocaust Education and the award-winning First World War Centenary Battlefields Tours Programme. The programme draws on this expertise, for example, providing the opportunity to complete a full two-day teachers’ programme in Holocaust Education as part of the PGCE.

On this course you can

  • gain the qualified teacher status (QTS) needed to teach history in secondary education contexts
  • gain a Postgraduate Certificate (PGCE) equivalent to 60 masters level points based on academic submissions
  • apply for a bursary to help with course fees (UK and EU students only).

This course prepares you to become a qualified history teacher committed to the subject and able to teach it confidently to 11-18 year olds in secondary school and college settings. Your teaching and support is shared between the University its partner schools across the Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Humberside region.

You attend University based subject training days focused on teaching history, led by experienced history practitioners. These are spread over the year and help you prepare for your teaching placements.

You also focus on teaching humanities subjects RE, geography and citizenship, which broaden you skills and knowledge for a wider range of teaching in schools. Input from national providers such as UK Parliament Education Service, Holocaust Education Trust and English Heritage develops your awareness of the wider opportunities, resources and support for creative teaching. As part of this you spend a full day exploring approaches to teaching outside the classroom at Conisburgh Castle.

Through taught subject sessions and access to the University library resources, you are supported in producing two academic assignments to gain the QTS award. During the course you complete either the PGCE or the professional graduate certificate in education (ProfGCE). Both qualifications include QTS, but the PGCE also gives you 60 masters level credits, which you can use towards a full masters degree (180 credits).

Subject sessions are also very practical and you are introduced to a variety of resources, ideas and teaching techniques appropriate to the history classroom in Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. Working with other trainees gives you the opportunity to share teaching ideas and strategies. We build a shared bank of ideas and resources for teaching pupils of different ages and abilities, which can then be trialled during placement and used in your future career.

In University sessions, we help you develop the knowledge and skills to be a successful teacher of history, then with our partner schools we support you in deploying these in the classroom, building your confidence and professional autonomy.

School placements are central to the course, and we have strong partnerships with secondary schools and colleges in the Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Humberside area. You complete two teaching placements, one in the autumn term between October and December and the second from January to June. During this time you are supported by a University-trained mentor in school, helping you develop your classroom pedagogy through advice on planning, regular classroom observation, and regular meetings to discuss progress and next steps. Mentors provide support for your wider thinking, not just about the subject but the wider role of the teacher and about teacher professionalism. As well as one-to-one support, you usually engage in school-based training activities alongside other trainees, NQTs or more experienced teachers.

School-based mentors also support you in completing school-based professional studies tasks and online tracking document known as the professional development portfolio (PDP). By the end of your placements you can provide evidence showing how you meet the qualified teacher status standards required by the course. Your course tutor also visits you during your placements to observe and discuss your progress, keeping in touch with your school-based mentor throughout.

On the PGCE History course you learn how to

  • plan and teach history across Key Stages 3 and 4 in the active and creative ways needed to motivate pupils
  • recognise and plan for progression in subject specific knowledge, skills and concepts, both in individual lessons and across sequences of lessons
  • assess student learning and progress in individual lessons and over time
  • appreciate and critically evaluate different approaches to teaching and learning, behaviour management, assessment and differentiation to meet the needs of different students
  • plan to meet the requirements of the current Key Stage 3 National Curriculum and GCSE syllabi
  • plan to meet the requirements of current A level syllabi, with some support in planning to teach at A level
  • prepare to meet some of the wider aspects of the role of teachers in school.

The PGCE Secondary course provision is enhanced by frequent and valued input from practising classroom teachers and colleagues from the senior leadership teams in our partnership schools.

Course Content

The PGCE course aims to produce teachers of the highest quality. This quality is achieved when you match the commitment and dedication of teachers and tutors throughout the programme. As one trainee commented in the end of course evaluation: 'The support from dedicated university tutors and school-based mentors has been unbelievable.'

The PGCE course enables you to gain experience at Key Stages 3 and 4 and also at post-16, though formal assessment is normally only for two of these phases.

University-based Sessions

The stimulating content of St Mary's-based professional studies programme aims to equip you with an understanding of general issues in education, such as the use of data to inform pupil progress and strategies for managing behaviour for learning. The subject-specific sessions include teaching methods, lesson preparation, monitoring and assessing pupils' work and classroom management.

A variety of methods and approaches are considered. Trainees are encouraged to follow up taught sessions through practical work in schools. Trainees must be prepared to take an active part in group work and presentations, and to carry out preparatory and follow-up work outside of taught sessions.

Teaching and Learning

The course tutors use a variety of teaching and learning approaches, including lectures, workshop sessions, collaborative and small-group work, paired work, practical activities, with positive use of technology, individual and group student presentations and some self-supported study.

A number of external cross-curricular visits (e.g. field trips and visits to museums) also take place.

This range of strategies both caters for a range of preferred learning styles and provides good teaching role models for trainees.

This long-established, popular programme incorporates high quality tutoring and excellent placement support with opportunities to work with leading practitioners from the world of history education. You will be encouraged to develop innovative and modern approaches to teaching and learning, including the use of ICT, to make you a high quality and successful history teacher at secondary school level.

The programme aims to develop reflective and analytical skills as well as providing practical experience in planning effective lessons and learning strategies, hands-on classroom experience, and opportunities to explore different aspects of your subject knowledge.

If you have a single or joint honours degree in History, or a degree in a related subject with discrete elements of history, and you want to excite the imagination and develop the historical awareness of secondary school pupils aged 11 to 16, this is the programme for you.

What will I study?

You’ll start with an extensive subject knowledge and understanding audit, to identify your main strengths and weaknesses, and enable your tutor to focus on your individual development needs. During 12 weeks of study on campus, you’ll develop:

- Knowledge of essential educational theory;
- Develop an understanding of active teaching methods and the underlying principles of effective learning;
- Awareness of appropriate and innovative teaching and assessment methods, including simulations and role play;
- Strategies to develop students’ historical understanding through creative and stimulating ways, including organising fieldwork, use of ICT and museum work;
- Understanding the conceptual structure of the history curriculum;
- Ability to plan lessons effectively;
- A confident working knowledge of recent approaches to using ICT tools in the history classroom;
- Working with a range of outside speakers from the history education community;
- Greater subject knowledge and professional and academic skills;
- Wider awareness of your role within the history teaching community and the teaching profession through the study of professional values.

How will I study?

A combination of academic study, group discussion and reflection, and practical, work-based learning in the classroom will give you all the knowledge and skills you need to become a creative and innovative teacher. The programme aims to develop a reflective and critically analytical approach to education.

You will also enhance your subject knowledge and understanding of learning outside the classroom through participating in field visits to a wide range of sites and museums, including the International Slavery Museum in Liverpool, the Imperial War Museum North in Salford, and the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester.

You will spend 26 weeks on placement in schools, colleges or other settings, putting your training into practice through assisting with and taking responsibility for classes, and working alongside mentors and peers to further your professional development. The focus initially is on observation and supporting teaching and learning. Your teaching timetable will increase as your training progresses and you become more confident and competent in the classroom.

How will I be assessed?

A balanced combination of coursework and observed classroom experience will be assessed against academic criteria at Level 7 and the Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) Standards. Weekly tasks undertaken in schools will enable you to develop an understanding of effective teaching and learning approaches which will inform University based sessions. The most demanding assignment is a reflective and analytical piece of classroom-based research in which you will consider how pupils learn history, and how your teaching can make that more effective.

Before the end of your PGCE you will need to complete a Career Entry and Development Profile (CEDP) which acts as a useful bridge between your initial teacher training programme and your Induction Year as a Newly Qualified Teacher.

Who will be teaching me?

You will be taught by a dedicated team of knowledgeable, experienced, friendly and supportive tutors who have the welfare of their trainees as a number one priority.

What are my career prospects?

Successful completion of this programme will allow you to gain QTS and progress onto employment as a Newly Qualified Teacher (NQT) at secondary school level in History.

Our proactive careers advisory service can help you to find job vacancies and offers in-depth advice on teacher job applications and interviews, to help you secure work.

Teaching is a rewarding job and there are many ways in which you could progress in your career, either in the classroom or in a leadership role.

The PGCE Secondary is the first phase of a career-long process of personal and professional development, which will equip you to become a secondary school teacher. The PGCE Secondary is a course in Initial Teacher Training which is accredited by the DfE, the successful completion of which will accord you Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). Our course has recently been inspected by Ofsted which resulted in an “Outstanding” grading for all aspects of our provision.

Subject pedagogy is explored in curriculum groups, examining techniques for making each subject accessible and stimulating in a classroom environment.

The history course at Durham aims to:
-Provide you with the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills needed to become an effective and inspirational teacher of history.
-Extend your awareness of the importance and relevance of history as a subject in schools today.
-Provide opportunities for you to experience and explore a variety of approaches to teaching the subject.
-Allow you to develop an appreciation of your own areas of expertise and areas for development.

The course is based on the firm belief that history is a relevant, exciting subject to teach and does not consist of transmitting a mass of information to pupils who then memorise and regurgitate it. The course has a practical emphasis and will introduce you to a range of approaches to teaching history, so enabling you to develop your own teaching style.

There are three integrated components: the concurrent course, the diagnostic teaching practice and the main teaching practice. The concurrent course, undertaken in the two teaching practice schools, consists of three days of school-based work and two days of university-based work. These two elements fully complement each other and the work undertaken as part of the university-based history method course is applied during the school visits and teaching practices.

The university-based method course will focus on a number of topics including:
-The nature, aims and justification of histor.
-The National Curriculum.
-Recent developments in teaching history.
-Lesson planning.
-Classroom management.
-The use of documents and other sources.
-Teaching pupils of differing abilities.
-Computers in teaching.
-The use of artefacts.
-Role playing and historical fiction.
-Fieldwork and visits.
-Job applications and interviews.

You will be based in one of our secondary partnership schools where you will have the opportunity to develop your skills in a teaching environment.

The school-based activities involve structured classroom observations, planning and research projects and practical teaching - the latter starting by teaching individual pupils or parts of lessons, eventually leading to group work and full classroom teaching.

Structure and Assessment

The course is organised as three modules:
-Professional Issues in school based education
-Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum
-Self-directed Study

The Professional Issues in School Based Education relates to the Teacher Standards and is delivered in two parts, prior to each of the two extended teaching practices. The teaching is related to those classroom-based issues such as the psychology of learning, the law, curriculum groups, examining techniques for making each subject accessible and stimulating in a classroom environment and is followed up in subject groups and during school placements The block practices in the Autumn and Spring allow for practical opportunities for full professional development where there is a progression from observation, structured activities and group work to whole class work.

Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum and Self Directed Study are studied at Masters Level. The Teaching and Learning in the Curriculum Module draws on the international research expertise within the School of Education enabling student teachers to engage critically in issues relevant to the classroom and school, particularly those that impact on the success of children as learners. The Self Directed Study module draws on students’ experience during weekly visits to schools and their own small scale action research, and links this to critical engagement with published educational research.

On successful completion of the course, student teachers will have 90 credits and QTS.

Other admission requirements

-A demonstrable interest and involvement in the lives and development of young people.
-GCSE English and Mathematics at Grade C or above (or equivalent) which must be achieved at the time of application.If your equivalent qualifications are from an overseas institution, you must apply for a Statement of Comparability from NARIC.

The Secondary Postgraduate Certificate in Education is a one academic year (36 week) course that trains graduates to be secondary school teachers of History.

The PGCE programme has been designed to train teachers to practice as a subject specialist teacher for the secondary age range (11-16). Trainees are assessed against the standards for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) across the age range. Trainees will also often gain experience of the 16-18 age range, although they will not be formally assessed in this phase.

Course detail

If you believe that a study of History is central to the broad and balanced education of any young person, a good grounding in the subject and a history degree, if you have a passion for the subject and are not afraid to work hard to share it in a lively and engaging manner then this might be the course for you!

The course is active and practical allowing trainees to develop professional competence through work undertaken in schools and in the University. Trainees work with young people, develop their expertise in their specialist subject area, share and discuss educational issues and study relevant educational research. The course is just the beginning of what we hope will be a process of continual professional development throughout a challenging and rewarding career.

Structure

The course is part of the Department of Education's programme for Initial Teacher Training. Units studied are:

• Enabling Learning
• Meeting Curriculum Challenges
• Becoming a Teacher

These units are studied in both the school and the University-based parts of the course, the work on each site being complementary.

In subject studies sessions, students get the opportunity to:

• Find out about the History curriculum
• Look at planning for stimulating, active learning
• Consider ways to stretch young people's curiosity and interest in history, including using:
o Historical sources
o Role play and drama
o Objects and artefacts
o Fieldwork (including optional residential fieldwork)
o Storytelling
o ICT

Format

We recognise that embarking on a new course of study can sometimes be quite a challenging undertaking. Students have three main sources of support and information from the University during the course: firstly, there is the Group Tutor in their subject area. Secondly, each student is allocated a Personal Tutor, and thirdly, any student can get support on a range of issues from the Department Student Adviser.

Placements

24 weeks are spent on placement: a total of eight weeks in one placement during the autumn term and either 12 weeks in a second placement with a further four weeks in an alternative setting (museum or heritage site, or archive education department or special school or ICT centre), or 16 weeks in a second placement during the spring and summer.

As well as teaching, the programme includes contact time with a Senior Professional Tutor and a Subject Mentor, directed study time and personal study time.

Assessment

In order to pass the course, trainees are required to pass each unit. You are assessed on a number of written assignments and also on classroom practice against the standards specified by the Secretary of State for the award of QTS.

History, according to the current national curriculum, "should inspire pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past". Our aim is to equip students to do just that, developing their ability to plan meaningful historical experiences for pupils in the 11–16 age range, to teach effectively and to assess their own and their pupils’ achievements.

Degree information

Students will understand why history is taught in schools, how pupils learn and make sense of the past, and how to teach history in an exciting way that develops learners. There are five key themes underpinning the programme: 'diverse histories', 'history for all', 'historical thinking', 'engaging with history' and ‘ becoming a professional history teacher'. These themes reflect our location in the capital, the wide range of schools and students that we work with and our ambition to engage, challenge and enlighten all learners.

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
-History in a Wider Context (30 Master's-level credits)
-Learning, Teaching and Assessing History (30 Master's-level credits)
-Professional Practice

Placement
Students spend most of their time (120) days in schools, working with history mentors who support them through two school placements. We are fortunate to have a good choice of schools with whom we work with some outstanding mentors and strong history departments. The Professional Practice module is assessed through these placements, associated tasks and a portfolio.

Teaching and learning
The programme is delivered via keynote lectures, subject lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials and directed study days at the IOE, as well as time spent in placements. Assessment is by practical teaching, assignments and portfolio tasks.

Students will also record their progress in a Career Entry and Development Profile statement. This will form part of an ongoing portfolio charting the student's continuing professional development.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as history teachers and heads of department in schools, while others have jobs as history educators in museums and archives. Graduates in this area can also be found working as senior leaders in schools.

Top career destinations for this degree:
-History Teacher, Unspecified Girls' School
-History Teacher, Unspecified Public School
-History and Religious Studies Teacher, Unspecified Academy
-History Teacher, Unspecified Boys' School
-Private tutor

Employability
A PGCE from the IOE carries considerable currency in schools which, alongside the quality of training you receive, puts you in a strong position in the employment market. Last year, all those students who sought employment in a school were successful. We expect 100% success rate in gaining a post in a school by the end of the year.

Why study this degree at UCL?

Students will be joining the largest History PGCE programme in the country, allowing them to benefit from a team of tutors with a wide range of expertise and interests. Students will also be able to develop strong peer networks across tutor groups and share ideas, resources and advice.
