The Citizenship PGCE offers students the opportunity to be trained at the leading edge of citizenship education for the 11–16 age range, becoming one of the next generation of specialist teachers of Citizenship and associated subjects such as Government and Politics, Humanities, Social Sciences, Law and PSHE.
Our course is led by an experienced and innovative Citizenship teacher and we partner with some of the very best schools for Citizenship in the country, with many mentors previous alumni of the Citizenship PGCE.
Our partner schools guarantee at least 50% of students’ teaching timetables is Citizenship and GCSE Citizenship Studies features in one or both placement schools. Most students will also gain experience of teaching at A level.
We train teachers in a dynamic, relevant way using current affairs, controversial issues and community action – a pedagogy which can be successfully applied to the range of subjects graduates can go on to teach.
