Course summary

History is important: it shapes our lives and moulds our identities. Our fascinating course allows you to examine a wide range of themes and issues across a range of nations and periods. Focusing on the cultural, political, social and economic aspects of historical change, you will be encouraged to study particular areas of historical interest and controversy in depth. In your studies, you will learn the essential historical techniques of critical analysis, research methods and the skills required for handling and processing information.This course provides the opportunity for you to attain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) at the end of a three-year undergraduate programme in History, enabling you to teach in secondary schools without the need for a further postgraduate qualification: an offering unique to the University of Wolverhampton.History is a perennially popular subject in secondary schools and colleges, meaning there is always a vibrant jobs market for History teachers offering great opportunities for a rewarding and respected career in the secondary education sector for our graduates.This course is ideal for those who already plan to teach once they have completed their university studies, but also offers the flexibility for students to change their mind, with the option to opt-out of the Secondary Education elements at the end of Year 1 and follow the BA (Hons) History course instead.The QTS components of the course have three interrelated elements with critical reflection at the core:◾Professional studies◾Subject specialist studies◾School based teaching experienceProfessional Studies are concerned with teachers’ professional values, roles, responsibilities and development, together with whole school issues in education. Professional studies are taught through subject studies as well as some whole cohort lectures, mixed group seminars, and days in a variety of schools (including teaching placements).Subject specialist studies are concerned with the knowledge, understanding and teaching of a particular subject. They focus on the key principles and key components of subject knowledge, the ability to apply principles and knowledge in the classrooms, and the assessment of pupils’ achievements.School-based teaching experience involves developing competency in classroom teaching to the standards described in national legislation. ◾You will undertake periods of University-based learning and you will spend at least 120 days divided between a range of schools at different times during the three years. Teaching on the course reflects a variety of methodologies that will prepare you for life in the classroom including teacher-led debates, pupil-led exploration, peer-group discovery and the provision of individual targets. You will be assessed in a variety of ways including written assignments; classroom based investigations and other school-based activities, and appraisals of practical teaching skills.◾……will lead to recommendation for the award of Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) which will allow you to take up a teaching post within a secondary school.◾As a trainee you will learn how to teach history to pupils in the 11-16 age range within the secondary age phase, with additional primary and post-16 enhancements.
