Course content

As a biology teacher, you will enhance pupils' understanding of themselves and the world around them, preparing them to succeed in a range of important careers.

Our Postgraduate/Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) is designed to prepare you in becoming a professional, competent and reflective secondary school teacher of science, with biology as a specialist subject. Your studies will focus on addressing the needs of pupils aged eleven to sixteen and beyond.

The quality of teacher training in secondary education was rated as "Good" in Ofsted report for Initial Teacher Education 2016. The report found that "Scientists appreciate the enhancement groups where they further build on their knowledge by sharing each other's expertise. As a consequence, the trainees' and NQTs' enthusiasm and confidence in the subjects they teach motivate and inspire pupils to learn and make progress."

As part of your PGCE, you will have the opportunity to gain 60 Master's-level credits and gain Qualified Teacher Status.
