Course content

As a physics teacher, you will share your knowledge and enthusiasm with secondary school pupils and promote an interest in science. Begin your training at Greenwich.

Our Postgraduate/Professional Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) prepares you to become a science teacher at secondary school level, specialising in physics. You will focus on addressing the needs of pupils aged 11-16 and beyond, working alongside experienced trainers from the Institute of Physics, who can provide ideas on engaging students in science. Colleagues will share research-led experience to support the teaching of physics in secondary schools.

During your time with us, you will develop your teaching skills, learning how to address the needs of secondary school pupils at Key Stage 3 and 4. You will also develop your expertise, practical knowledge and theoretical understanding of science. By the end of the course, you will be formally assessed against the Teachers’ Standards to gain Qualified Teacher Status in addition to the PGCE qualification.
