Course summary

Overview

Do you love your subject, but want the breadth of teaching that primary teaching offers? Do you love working with the primary age range, but also want to develop a specialist subject which will enable you to teach in both primary and secondary schools? If so, then this may be the PGCE course for you.

The PGCE 7­-14 trains teachers to teach in both primary and secondary schools. It will train student teachers to be: Primary subject specialists who can also teach across the curriculum at a time when many primary schools are utilising subject specialists in their timetabling and teaching at Key Stage 2; Secondary subject specialists with a sound knowledge of primary practice, matching the direction in which curriculum at Key Stage 3 is travelling; Specialists who can teach across the whole age range (e.g. as required in international or independent schools).

This is a one year, full­-time course that aims to enable student teachers to become confident, competent classroom practitioners. The 7-­14 PGCE is ideal for those students who are particularly interested in this particular age group which spans the older years of primary education i.e. 7-­11 and the younger years of secondary education i.e. 11­-14.

We believe that the course offers an exciting opportunity for those who qualify to make a unique contribution to the education of children and young people. Indeed, part of the mission of the course is to enable teachers who qualify to ease the transition of pupils between these two stages, and to help policy and practice in both stages come closer together.

Your future career

The PGCE Secondary (7-14) offers you a wide choice of routes into teaching as it covers a range of ages and subjects. You can apply for a wide range of teaching posts and other education-based employment.
