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.
Religious Education is a demanding curriculum area where pupils reflect on their own beliefs and values and develop critical thinking skills to enable positive action in their communities. Trainees will encounter cultural diversity through visits to places of worship from the six major religions in Manchester and engage in dialogue with people from other faiths and cultural backgrounds. There is an emphasis on both practical and theoretical teaching skills.
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.
