PGCE Primary with Science


Course Description

The Primary PGCE with Science is designed to support trainees in developing the skills, values, knowledge and understanding required to meet the Teachers’ Standards. The programme will do this in the context of East London schools where it is paramount that teachers have the ability to support learning in a multicultural, multilingual urban environment. The Primary PGCE with Science aims to equip trainees with additional expertise in supporting learning and teaching in science and with the confidence and competence to take on a leadership role in this field in the future.
The Primary PGCE with Science is a partnership programme, written and developed in collaboration with schools. Much of your time will be spent in schools, observing learning and teaching, exploring the interface between theory and practice and working with pupils in a range of classroom settings. You will be an active participant in a diverse community of students. Inclusion, personalisation and pupil voice are some of the key themes and values underpinning the programme. You will engage with research at Masters level.
The Primary PGCE with Science provides the opportunity to focus on this core subject in the national curriculum to promote scientific enquiry in the classroom and create links to other subject areas.
