Months of entry
The Business Education PGCE prepares students to teach across the 14–19 age range, helping them develop the professional skills and attitudes to teach business in schools and colleges, as part of both academic (A level and GCSE) and BTEC courses.
Tutors on the Secondary PGCE are skilled classroom practitioners with extensive experience in secondary schools and colleges. We aim to give students insight into the continuously evolving subject of business and its application to classroom teaching. Our collaborative approach ensures that students developed into thoughtful and highly skilled teachers who can work confidently and flexibly within the broad framework of the 14-19 curriculum.
The dynamic nature of business means that students benefit greatly from practical experiences and learning outside of the classroom. The IOE offers students the unique ability to visit places such as the London Stock Exchange and the Bank of England; we also have strong links with the Economics and Business Education Association (EBEA) and provide access to national and regional Business Education conferences.
