The Faculty has a longstanding national reputation for providing high-calibre initial teacher training with over 20 secondary specialisms available. We have a well-established partnership with over 800 secondary schools and colleges across the North West region and beyond.
Our PGCE History encourages a thoughtful, reflective and critical approach to the teaching of history in the secondary school. Devised jointly by history education specialists at Manchester Metropolitan University and history mentors in school, it reflects both changes and debates at a national level . Practising history teachers make valuable contributions to university sessions. Subject pedagogy focuses on a reconeptualisation of subject knowledge understanding around subject content, key concepts and skills. There is an important emphasis upon an inclusive approach to teaching,including plus attention to gender, ethnic and cultural diversity. There is also attention to e-learning.
A minimum of 120 days school-based practice training is combined with university-based training and periods of independent study. Trainees are supported throughout by placement mentors.
