The Faculty of Education 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.
Computing with ICT is a national shortage subject, meaning successful trainees are highly employable. These routes will equip you with the skills and experience to teach at GCSE and A/AS levels, and vocational qualifications in both Computer Science and ICT.
Subject to confirmation of DfE funding, we usually run free pre-entry SKE and booster courses for national priority subjects, including Computing with ICT. These will be identified at interview for applicants who need support in some areas and confirmed with a PGCE place offer.
PGCE trainees will examine the theory and practice of computing, together with approaches to more general ICT skills and issues as they apply to teaching in the secondary school context. We work in close partnership with schools in designing, delivering and assessing the course.
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 university and placement mentors.
