Course summary

The Physics with Mathematics PGCE helps students to develop the professional skills and knowledge they need to teach science and mathematics in the 11-16 age range. We are committed to creative and interactive approaches to teaching science to promote student engagement and learning. Students will acquire a critical understanding of current debates and issues relating to physics and mathematics education, and will be guided and supported in developing their subject knowledge. We expect students to engage with reading and research into science and mathematics education and to regularly reflect upon their progress, towards meeting the teaching standards across the 11–16 age range.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working across schools in London and around the UK as teachers, heads of departments and heads of year. Some graduates decide to pursue an academic science education route by pursuing Master's or doctoral level study.

Employability Graduates of the Secondary PGCE programme are highly employable and sought after by schools and colleges in London and beyond. Almost all graduates secure their first teaching post by the time they finish the PGCE programme. Graduates of the programme also have great career prospects, with many becoming Head of Department or a Head of Year within 2-5 years, often acting, in their schools, as mentors to new PGCE student teachers. Many of our graduates become senior teachers (such as Assistant Headteachers or Head of a Faculty) in 5-8 years of graduating, and some are now Headteachers. Others have developed their careers as subject specialist teachers and educators, both becoming lead teachers in the classroom and researching, writing and advising other teachers themselves. The Secondary PGCE Programme aims to provide a springboard into a rewarding career as a skilled teacher and future educational leader.

Accreditation

Students who successfully complete this programme will be recommended for Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).
