Course content

Television has helped revitalise the public interest in science and, as a secondary school teacher, you can also play your part in bringing physics to life for a new generation. Your teaching, lessons and experiments can help to engage young minds and transform their understanding of the subject. Your inspirational teaching could also help break down barriers and tackle the gender bias in physics.

Developing your teaching ability will be our key aim. You will be encouraged to think creatively in order to spark your pupils' interest in gravity, astronomy and quantum mechanics.
