You’ll take six core modules including induction and professional issues, teaching and learning in mathematics, developing subject pedagogy, and professional studies and practical teaching. We assess modules through either coursework or practical teaching. You’ll learn to draw on your experience of teaching and to provide evidence of reading and reflection. We’ll support you with a range of graduated practical experiences which will allow you to develop confidence to take responsibility in the classroom. This tapered introduction to learning is a well established and successful feature of our teacher training. As a trainee teacher you’ll spend two thirds of your PGCE year in local schools with two main secondary school placements as well as shorter visits to primary schools. You’ll be supervised jointly by a school mentor and a faculty tutor.
