Course summary

Programme overview

Our programme has an excellent reputation both locally and nationally. Our PGCE graduates are often sought after as first appointments by local schools.

We are keen to develop your understanding of English as a creative, arts-based subject. Along with research-based teaching, we use practical classroom strategies from the outset - a real 'hands-on' approach.

What you will do

You will:

  • Examine the power and potential of literature, language and multimodal texts.
  • Secure an understanding of literacy, how and why children learn to speak, listen, read and write.
  • Learn strategies and methods to enable pupils to understand a broad range of oral and textual forms of language and media.
  • Be prepared to implement the National Curriculum for English and the relevant exam specifications for GCSE and A-Level.
  • Be encouraged to build your confidence in drama methods and technology-enhanced education.

By the end of the programme, you’ll have become a reflective, innovative and flexible teacher who can enable pupils to learn and make progress.
