Course content

Do you want to become an outstanding teacher? Our specialist PGCE in Secondary Education with Geography is a direct route to a career of which you can be proud. Geography stimulates an interest in and a sense of wonder about places, this course develops a range of teaching styles appropriate to the delivery of Geography within the National Curriculum and GCSE/A Level specifications.

Geography inspires pupils to become global citizens by exploring their own place in the world, their values and responsibilities to other people, to the environment and to the sustainability of the planet. This PGCE Geography aims to produce dynamic, confident, and innovative teachers who are committed to making Geography accessible for all.

This course has been planned jointly with geography teachers in our partner schools to prepare you to be sensitive to the need to adapt to the rapidly changing nature of geography and of education in schools. Furthermore, our PGCE Geography trainees take up ‘enhancements’ linked to other curriculum subjects, such as other humanities areas, primary phase or Special Education Needs and Diversity.

We work with a dedicated team of Subject Mentors in our Partnership schools – many of whom we have worked with over a number of years. Training in schools is of an extremely high quality, supportive but rigorous.

At Plymouth Marjon University, we pride ourselves on the quality of our ITE programmes and the impact that has on your progress in schools, we recognise that you all start the PGCE Geography with different levels of knowledge and experience and the programme from the start is personalized to meet your needs.
