Course content

Are you enthusiastic about religious education? This course will help you translate that into practical skills, so you can make it exciting and relevant for the young people you teach. We also aim to develop your skills so that you become an innovative professional, able to make a valuable contribution to the development of the subject in the future.

We will look at the role of a religious education teacher, working with faith communities to look at the aims of RE in spiritual and moral development. You'll use a variety of approaches towards teaching, including relationships with ICT and citizenship, to create a better learning experience for students. We believe that experience is not enough - what is vital is to be able to unpick and reflect on experiences. You'll deconstruct classroom learning activities into their constituent parts, and then build them up again and implement them in the classroom. Your personal tutor will meet with you throughout the year to discuss your progress, and your subject mentor will support your development towards QTS at your placement.
