The course is about training students to become good science teachers who will start their professional careers with positive attitudes.
You will be learning about science teaching in general as well as spending time on teaching your specialist subject: biology, chemistry, or physics.
We want you to become an effective and enthusiastic science teacher who makes science for pupils
an enriching, exciting, and enjoyable personal experience; an important subject in relation to their everyday lives as citizens; a valuable and relevant preparation for a wide range of careers.
We want you to be able to encourage your pupils to develop
enthusiasm, curiosity, and responsibility for the natural world; an understanding of scientific ideas and scientific methods; the skills of creative and critical thinking as well as practical and communication skills.
What is it like?
The course is school-focused and practical. Teaching science in schools
The most significant part of your time is spent in schools, where you are supported by your tutors and by experienced teachers. Schools today and tomorrow
You will study many aspects of the life of the school, including personal and social education, environmental education, careers, and health education. Gaining new skills
Through a mixture of workshops, seminars, and visits you will gain
practical advice and help on how to manage science lessons in the laboratory; information about the National Curriculum and its influence on science teaching; the chance to learn about the way pupils' understanding of science develops; ideas about how to teach particular topics; the chance to try out teaching methods and experiments; advice on safety in the laboratory and on your responsibilities as a teacher; experience in using information technology to aid and support learning.
