Course summary

In the modern world, knowledge of science is essential for everyone. Everything we know about the universe, from how trees reproduce to the structure of the atom is the result of scientific research and experiment.

Delivered in the Environmental Lab in the IQ Building, our secondary biology programme supports you in using your passion and expertise for Biology. It is a fulfilling career, inspiring young people and nurturing their natural curiosity.

You will be studying alongside scientists and computer scientists in the Science and Technology area of learning. You will teach general science as well as specialising in Biology for GCSEs and A levels.

In an increasingly technological and developing world, our impact on the environment is significant.

Educating children is a privilege and giving them the tools to make informed choices, and protecting the planet is one of the purposes of the new curriculum. Schools need more science teachers than ever before…they need you!
