Course content

The PGCE Secondary Computer Science programme is designed to meet the Standards required for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and to develop secondary teachers with a specialism in Computer Science.

It aims to do this in the context of our Secondary Partnership schools many of which are situated in east London where skills of educating children in a multi-cultural, multi-lingual urban environment are paramount.

The PGCE: Secondary Computer Science is a partnership programme, written and developed in collaboration with local schools. The majority of your time will be spent in schools observing teaching and learning, considering how the theory of education and the practice link together and, of course, working with children in classroom settings.

You will be studying in a diverse community of trainees from a range of different subjects as well as studying alongside fellow trainees. Overall the programme aims to produce effective teachers who are able to operate as reflective practitioners.
