Course content

The PGCE (M) Secondary programme will get you ready to teach pupils aged 11-16 with post-16 enhancement in secondary schools. You will be teaching pupils as they mature from early adolescence into adulthood. The PGCE Science programme is in two parts, core science and an additional course in a science specialism. You'll graduate ready to teach all three sciences up to at least the end of Key Stage 3 (Year 9) and a specialist subject to post-16 level. In choosing physics or physics with mathematics as your specialist subject, you will take this hands-on course.

The programme runs for 38 weeks and you will be based in schools two thirds (120 days) of the time. This is followed by two extensive placements in our partnership schools, where you'll get a broad range of practical teaching experience and to put ideas and theory into practice as you work in different schools.
