Months of entry
There is a national shortage of science teachers, including Biology teachers, and Birmingham City University School of Education and Social Work is helping to fill the gap by producing teachers of excellence who can inspire young people in the classroom.
We believe science is an exciting subject and the PGCE Secondary Biology course at Birmingham City University enables you to develop the skills and knowledge necessary to teach successfully, as well as explore the knowledge, skills and understanding young people need as part of their science education.
As well as taking advantage of the superb new facilities at the School of Education and Social Work, which include a newly commissioned teaching lab and top-of-the-range ICT provision, you will have access to school-based facilities, enabling you to train in the environment in which you will be working.
