Course content

This course is designed to equip you with expertise and experience to become a science teacher in a secondary school. You will develop detailed subject knowledge, skills and understanding of pedagogical issues related to science at the 11-14 age phase.

Subject Knowledge Enhancement
If you wish to follow the chemistry or physics specialism and your degree does not include enough chemistry or physics, the Teaching Agency (TA) sponsors several Subject Knowledge Enhancement (SKE) courses which range in length from 2 weeks to 12 months. Newman's SKE courses will provide you with the opportunity to acquire enough chemistry or physics to teach it to at least Key Stage 3, 4 and post-16.
