Course summary

This one year programme leads to a PGCE, recommendation for QTS and 60 credits at Master's level.

Programme overview

Develop as a confident, effective practitioner who can teach science and your specialist subject in ways that deepen pupils' understanding and motivate them to take their study of science further.

Our PGCE Science programmes are based on science in schools: varied, multi-disciplinary, practical and thought-provoking. We offer PGCEs in physics, biology and chemistry. You’ll study in cross-curricular groups as well as focusing on your specific scientific subject.

We will prepare you to teach science across the curriculum to GCSE level and your specialist subject to A-level.

We also encourage you to question the teaching of science. This could be the practices, theories, classroom strategies or the nature of science itself.

By the end of the programme you’ll be able to inspire young people to value and enjoy science at school.

What you will learn

You will think about the nature of science and the aims of science education and reflect on how these translate into practice.

The different abilities of children are explored and you’ll learn a range of methods that can be used to meet these varying needs.

You’ll also learn about the value of scientific models, ICT, investigative work, school trips and assessments.
