Course content

The full-time PGCE (Secondary) Standard Programme is available in these teaching subjects: Art and Design; Biology; Chemistry; Community Languages; Design and Technology; Drama; English; General Science; Mathematics; Modern Languages (French, German or Spanish); and Physics.

Graduates come to Goldsmiths with a wide range of experiences and degree backgrounds. Many of our students are mature, and we are proud of the fact that the social mix of our students is as varied as that of the schools with which we work. We regard this social diversity as a strength, both of the schools and of the programme.

The programme starts in September, and lasts for 36 weeks with the equivalent of 24 weeks spent in schools, check term dates here. College-based courses are normally timetabled between 9am and 4pm. In school, you are expected to attend from 8.30am (earlier in some schools) until the end of the school day. Successful completion of the programme leads to a PGCE and recommendation for the award of QTS. This is provisional until you have satisfactorily completed an induction period in your first post.
