PGCE Secondary English

Course Description

The Middlesex PGCE Secondary English course is one year full-time. It equips you to inspire pupils through the use of engaging interactive workshops, lectures and structured debates. You receive personal attention through regular tutor visits to school placements and individual tutorials. Schools are carefully selected to suit individuals and expose them to imaginative and thought provoking teaching and learning strategies.

The course aims to prepare you for the teaching profession. It will:

Enable you to develop knowledge and understanding of pupils and their learning
Develop your expertise in highly specialised professional skills in a context where you'll need to exercise initiative and take personal responsibility for decision making in complex and unpredictable situations
Equip you with the pedagogic knowledge, understanding and skills to teach effectively to Secondary School students
Develop your knowledge and understanding of the Secondary English curriculum
Enable you to understand, critically evaluate and respond to the needs of children in multicultural, multilingual and multifaith settings and schools in an international, urban environment.
The first part of the course focuses on a variety of skills and knowledge in the teaching of English in the classroom. The second part consolidates that learning but also addresses a broader range of issues, both in the school and in society. The subject programme includes four interrelated elements which focus on the school and classroom, language literature and communication. Key features of the programme of subject studies include:

The media aspects of English
An exploration of support for language and learning needs
Drama within English.
Two thirds (120 days) of the PGCE Secondary English course will be on placement. We have excellent relationships with schools in north London, Essex and Hertfordshire and many of our graduates go on to work in their first teaching job at the schools where they had a placement.

In 2012, the secondary teacher training programmes at Middlesex were rated Good with Outstanding Features (by Ofsted), an excellent result for a large and diverse provider of teacher training.
