PGCE Secondary Physics with Mathematics

Course Description

The PGCE: Physics with Mathematics is a partnership programme. This means that it has been written and developed in collaboration with Local Authorities and local schools. The majority of your time will be spent in schools observing teaching and learning, considering how the theory of education and the practice link together and, of course, working with children in classroom settings.

You will be studying in a diverse community of trainees from a range of different subjects as well as studying alongside fellow Physics and Maths trainees.

You will take part in the Virtual Schools project which involves working as a team with fellow trainees from different subject areas to address real life issues and challenges which may arise in schools.

Many themes such as equal opportunities, bilingualism, meeting the needs for children with special educational needs etc. underpin the taught programme.

The subject studies elements of the programme focus on teaching both the Physics together with Mathematics as curriculum subjects and developing your skills in these specialisms.

These sessions aim to:

Provide an introduction to both Physics and Mathematics as curriculum subjects
Enable you to develop high level of teaching skills and classroom management, as well as the capacity for reflection and further professional development.
To offer theoretical perspectives on the principles of the design of specifications, evaluation and assessment and monitoring of children’s’ progress in the classroom.
To provide knowledge and understanding of the National Curriculum and the framework for evaluation
You will be engaging with research at Masters Level in two of the three available modules; one on Reflective Practice, one on the potential uses of new and emerging technologies in secondary education and the third on developing subject expertise and subject pedagogy.
