The Science with Biology, Chemistry or Physics routes are designed to produce highly-skilled and outstanding science teachers who will enthuse and inspire children with a love of the subject and an ability to achieve in it at the highest levels.
Trainees with be trained to teach National Curriculum Science at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 and their subject specialism (Biology, Chemistry or Physics) to KS5.
The subject specific element of the course is delivered at a nearby partner school and is complemented by a Professional Studies programme, which is based at our Bognor Regis campus.
The subject studies focuses very much on turning a good understanding of educational theory into outstanding performance in the classroom.
To develop these skills and many others we use a mixture of input from the course leader, from your peers, visiting speakers, group work and tasks, practical sessions and use videos of you teaching your peers.
You will learn about learning and how to plan and achieve the best progress for the children you teach.
Over the past few years, we’ve redeveloped both of our campuses so that you have the best facilities available for your degree. We pride ourselves on the quality of the learning environment we can offer our students.
At Bognor Regis campus there is an integrated approach to the provision of learning resources and support. We offer a substantial collection of books, journals and other materials to help you further your research. A range of study areas for group and quiet study including Wi-Fi areas for laptop use are available, or you can use our open access PC and Mac areas. We use an electronic learning environment with an expanding portfolio of online library resources from anywhere at any time.
Our award winning Learning Resource Centre is at the heart of the campus. It hosts a modern library service with areas for quiet and silent study on both floors. Also situated in the LRC is the Support and Information Zone, Costa Coffee and over 80 open access work stations. An equipment loans centre offers laptops, tablets and other electronic devices for short and long term loans.
This programme prepares you for a career as a secondary school teacher. At the end of the year you will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status and will be ready for the next stage of your development as a Newly Qualified Teacher in school. Our students are highly successful in gaining teaching posts, many in our partner schools.
In addition to your subject specialism, you’ll study a Professional Studies element of the course, which includes:
The programme’s delivered full-time over 38 weeks with 70% practical school experience in established partner schools and 30% university-based time, divided between Professional Studies and subject study.
This experience provides you with the opportunity to work alongside serving teachers, learning about the broader roles and skills of teachers and other school staff.
The course is assessed through observation during teaching placements and written assignments.
To gain a Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) students need to complete three 4,000 word assignments at FHEQ level 7 (Masters), and two blocks of School Experience.
