PGCE Secondary Science - Biology, Chemistry and Physics


Course Description

The UCL Institute of Education is a leading centre for teacher education in Europe and one of the largest teacher training providers in London. We have a wide range of teacher training programmes for those wanting to qualify to teach in primary and secondary schools, and in further and adult education colleges. The IOE was recognised by Ofsted as ‘Outstanding’ across every programme.

All of our programmes are modular and you can use IOE PGCE credits to contribute towards a Masters qualification in education.

Biology

Study Secondary Biology at the UCL Institute of Education - http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught/degrees/biology-pgce

The Biology PGCE will help students to develop the professional skills and knowledge needed to teach all aspects of science to pupils at least up to age 16, as well as biology to pupils aged up to 18.

Students will acquire a critical understanding of current debates and issues relating to science education and, particularly biology, and we will guide and support them in developing their subject knowledge. Students will also have the opportunity to teach outside the classroom in a variety of London venues such as Kew Gardens.

Bursaries (https://getintoteaching.education.gov.uk/bursaries-and-funding) of £15,000-£20,000 are available to students who meet the eligibility criteria for the Biology programme.
We also offer this course through the School Direct Tuition Fee route (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught/degrees/science-biology-school-direct-pgce) in partnership with a number of schools. Alternatively, those with three years of work experience (in any sector) may wish to consider the School Direct Salaried route (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate/taught/degrees/biology-school-direct-salaried).
