Course content

Gain qualified teacher status (QTS) with a subject specialism in secondary design and technology, qualifying you to teach in secondary schools and post-16 colleges.

On the course you

  • enhance your subject knowledge, understanding and skills
  • learn how to teach design and technology
  • learn about the wider role of teachers in school
  • gain knowledge about schools and the education system
  • apply your skills and knowledge on school placements

We help you develop the skills you need to be a successful teacher of pupils of all abilities. By studying with us you build your enthusiasm, confidence, knowledge and ability to teach design and technology.

You also gain self-evaluation skills by completing a career preparation profile. This provides evidence that you meet the QTS standards for self-evaluation and personal development.

School placements are central to the course. You complete teaching placements in two 11–16 or 11–18 schools, or in a post-16 college. This allows you to experience the progression from Key Stage 3 to 5. A university-trained mentor supports you when on placement. Your course tutor also visits you to discuss your progress.

We have strong partnerships with secondary schools and colleges in the area and many of our students are offered teaching jobs in their placement schools.

Your placements are complemented by university and academy based study that includes teaching sessions, seminars, group study, tutorials and assessment.

During the course you can choose to complete either the PGCE or the professional graduate certificate in education (ProfGCE). Both qualifications achieve QTS but the PGCE also gives you 60 Masters level credits, which you can use towards a masters degree.

School Direct

Apply for a place through the School Direct scheme for a dedicated route into a job after graduation. During School Direct, the school or partnership of schools that you've applied to will be much more involved in your selection, recruitment and professional development as there is the expectation that you will be employed by them once qualified.
