This intensive and well-supported year of training will prepare you to teach young people in the 11-16 age phase. You will also benefit from additional opportunities to develop your ability to teach at sixth-form level.

  • English
  • Mathematics

  • In addition to gaining Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) in accordance with government standards, you will also receive the award of PGCE with 60 credits towards a masters degree.

What will you study?

This course will enable you to become an effective, inclusive and evidence informed teacher. At the heart of our course is a commitment to personalising your journey to Qualified Teacher Status. We'll help you to grow in confidence and competence by providing you with outstanding support as you train. You'll find a supportive learning environment at the University and in our partnership schools. This will help you develop a deep understanding of the secondary curriculum, including your own specialist subject and acquire a range of teaching methods, based upon the latest research in education. We model good teaching as we train you, so you can transfer what you've experienced into your own practice.

You'll also benefit from a course that supports you in becoming a research-engaged teacher, who can use evidence to drive improvements in young people's learning and wellbeing. Credits from your PGCE modules form part of our Master of Research in Education, which you can continue with beyond your PGCE year.

You will benefit from two contrasting placements in our committed partnership of schools. You will spend two-thirds of your course in both placements.

Please be aware: applicants need to pass NCTL's professional skills tests in literacy and numeracy as a condition of entry to the course. Please consult the Get into Teaching website for more information.

Assessment

You will be assessed against the Teacher Standards during your school placements and complete four PGCE modules. The modules will deepen your understanding of teaching through engaging with evidence in the context of your own practice.
