Course summary

Overview

Chemistry is a subject which can fascinate and inspire children. It feeds their natural curiosity and supports them in developing their understanding of the natural world. Science teachers are in great demand and this course appeals to graduates who are passionate about Chemistry but want to develop the skills and understanding to teach science across the curriculum.

This one-year full-time course, enables you to meet the national standards for the award of qualified teacher status (QTS).

Why study PGCE Science with Chemistry (QTS) at Middlesex University?

Our PGCE Science with Chemistry course begins with a stimulating mix of chemistry, biology and physics education.

Teaching science at Key Stages 3 requires competence across the entire range of the National Curriculum Programme of Study for Science.

Through this PGCE, you will gain the understanding and skills necessary to operate as a critically reflective chemistry teacher in a secondary school setting. You will also develop the awareness and ability to transfer these skills and teach in subject areas across the science curriculum (such as biology and physics at KS3).

We have a range of specialist science and teaching facilities, providing you with a solid foundation on which to develop your skills and experience. We have excellent relationships with schools in and outside London and during your studies, you also will undertake teaching placements in at least two secondary schools and have the chance to acquire skills in the application of new technologies in teaching and learning. Schools are carefully selected to suit each individual and expose them to a variety of imaginative and thought provoking learning strategies. Key experts from our partner schools are on hand to offer invaluable mentoring and support.

The course gives you a strong understanding of how and why to teach chemistry in secondary schools whilst also enabling you to appreciate the unique aspects of other science specialisms in order to develop your confidence in teaching across the science curriculum. Middlesex University also has dedicated subject tutors who have established strong relations with external specialists and partnership schools who will deliver contemporary and subject specific training sessions.
