Computing has recently been recognised as a fundamental subject, which all pupils should be taught. Given that it has previously been a minority subject in a small number of schools, this expansion will require suitably qualified teachers as a matter of urgency.
Liverpool Hope University is one of the country’s leading providers of Initial Teacher Education. The PGCE is a postgraduate qualification aimed at high quality graduates wishing to pursue a career in secondary teaching. It is an intensive, demanding yet very rewarding programme running from early September to late June. Tutors are dedicated to individual student support and to working closely with partners in local schools.
The PGCE (Secondary) Computer Science with ICT programme comprises a fully integrated course of Initial Professional Development, subject-specific pedagogy and school-based learning which encourages student teachers to apply their theoretic understanding to practical situations.
Initial Professional Development (IPD): This part of the programme covers general aspects of becoming a teacher. It is largely lecture-based supported by discussion-based seminars with an assigned professional tutor. IPD develops the student teacher’s knowledge and understanding of a range of key issues in education.
Entry requirements for the PGCE Secondary Computer Science with ICT state you must have a 2:2 Honours Degree or above containing at least 50% of relevant subject content, GCSE English and Mathematics Grade C or above or equivalent and minimum 10 days Secondary school experience.
