Course content

Staffordshire University achieved top marks in the most recent OFSTED inspection. This course is designed to allow graduates with an appropriate honours degree to train at postgraduate level to become a secondary school Economics and Business teacher.

Course content

After a one week Induction Programme, you will be in school on serial and block placements to gain a supported understanding of the role of the teacher. Within a school, you will receive expert support from a subject or class mentor who will hold weekly meetings with you to help you to prepare, teach and review lessons and develop your subject knowledge.

Each school or college will have a professional mentor who will help you to understand the organisation of the school, pastoral care systems and the legal and social framework of school including supporting services.

Associate Teachers have a phased introduction to teaching that will reflect your personal needs. Initially you will observe the regular teacher, help with group work and then move towards sharing classes with the teacher before eventually taking classes yourself. As well as teaching your subject, you will be required to contribute generally to the life of the school.

The university element of the course is designed to engage Associate Teachers in critical reflection on the nature of education. We also aim to develop your knowledge of Economics and Business Studies. Group and individual tutorials in the university will give you an opportunity to discuss your ideas and the challenges you may face.

The university aspects of the course take place on the Stoke campus and will draw upon the experience of practicing teachers as well as highly experienced tutors. The school experience is based in local, carefully selected partnership schools.

The blend of practical experience and university study will be evidenced by the compilation of portfolios and the production of short written academic papers.

Graduate destinations

On completing your Teacher Training course (PGCE) and starting your first teaching job, you can join our Masters course in Education and be in a position of completing your Masters in Education by the end of your second year of teaching.

Other admission requirements

You will need to demonstrate a good understanding of the education system gained from work or placement in schools or experience of working with secondary school aged pupils. You will be required to successfully complete a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) application and be certified fit to teach - more information is available at https://www.gov.uk/disclosure-and-barring-service-criminal-record-checks-referrals-and-complaints. You must be ICT literate. We recommend you submit a well considered personal statement on the UCAS application form as this is a key part of the short listing process.
