Course summary

Overview

Today’s pupils get equal enjoyment from learning about how things work and as a secondary school physics teacher you will learn to build upon and sustain this interest as pupils journey through the physics national curriculum.

As a Physics and Maths teacher you will initiate and develop, within their pupils, a secure understanding of how, through the ideas of physics, the complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described in terms of a number of key ideas which can be applied universally.

Our aim is to help you become a Physics and Maths teacher who approaches every lesson with content and pedagogical knowledge to spare. Knowledge you may not need to use but will give you confidence as a teacher and clearly demonstrate to your pupils that they can learn from you.

The need for qualified, enthusiastic teachers with an understanding of the demands society places on young people has never been greater. The opportunity to educate children and young people, and learn from them in return, is immensely rewarding.

Brunel’s PGCE in Secondary Education (Physics with Mathematics) is designed to prepare you to teach pupils aged 11 to 16 the subject of physics. Additionally, and as a direct result of an initiative by the Institute of Physics in response to the need for specialist physics teachers in secondary schools, you will have the option to offer mathematics as a subsidiary subject.

Schools are seeking teachers with high levels of pedagogical competence and skill, as well as advanced subject knowledge for teaching as well as knowledge of the theories, policies and systems relevant to education.

Careers and your future

A Brunel PGCE with recommendation for QTS is a recognised symbol of high quality Initial Teacher Education (ITE). This is demonstrated by Brunel’s outstanding employment rates over time and feedback from Brunel alumni student teachers, our partnership schools and Ofsted inspectors.

Brunel PGCE graduates have gone on to work in our partnership schools, and many in schools where they undertook a placement experience. This allows the department to retain links with former students and often they become school-based mentors for Brunel PGCE students. The department also has a network of alumni in positions of responsibility in schools across the country.

After you graduate, your relationship with Brunel doesn’t stop there. As alumni, you can remain involved in the Partnership in a range of ways including mentoring, and can also sign up to receive invitations to Brunel public lectures, Education Department research seminars, events and steering groups, to ensure you continue to develop through a community of professional practice within, and beyond the school in which you work.
