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.
Our PGCE Physics with Mathematics is aimed at students who show an aptitude in both subjects and who wish to combine the skills of two shortage areas. On completion of this PGCE trainees will be able to teach Physics 11-19 and Mathematics to at least Key Stage 3. We particularly welcome applicants from a variety of science, engineering as well as physics backgrounds who feel that they have the skills to inspire young people and teach successfully in a very important area of the curriculum.
Physics and Maths teaching are stated government priorities nationally and therefore attractive bursaries are available to support your training. Subject to DfE funding and eligibility we offer a free, pre-entry six month Physics Skills Knowledge Enhancement course. These will be discussed at interview and confirmed with a PGCE place offer.
