We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Postgraduate degrees in Secondary Teacher Training provide the skills to work as an educational professional in secondary or 'high school' settings.
Initial Teacher Training (ITT) courses such as the UK PGCE (Postgraduate Certificate in Education) degrees are typical for the field, though shorter Postgraduate Certificate and Diploma courses are also available.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in the subject you wish to teach in. You are also required to hold a minimum Grade C in English, Maths and Science. Work experience may also be a requirement in some cases.
Courses in this field allow you to specialise in subject-specific teacher training for secondary school students. From English, Math and Business, to Art, Drama and Design Technology, you can coordinate your course with your professional interests.
Across all disciplines, training will cover methodologies in teaching practice, theory in child acquisition, and examination of current regulation and policy regarding curriculum standards. Placements are a key component of these courses.
As well as teaching your experience would be suited to roles in legislation and public policy, administration and charity work.
