Course summary

The education and training of Business Studies teachers is a long-established feature of UWTSD and the university is the main provider of Business Studies teachers in Wales. As such, we are privileged to enjoy an enviable reputation in the sector.

The course incorporates the most recent innovations and thinking in Business Studies teaching.

The Business Studies Pathway provides an engaging and relevant professional training that enables you to:

  • transform your Business Studies expertise into competent and effective classroom teaching;
  • develop an understanding of how pupils learn Business subjects;
  • critically evaluate and enhance your teaching to improve quality and effectiveness in the classroom.

The new curriculum suggests that a key purpose of the curriculum is for learners to be 'enterprising and creative contributors'. Our PGCE recognises that Business teachers have a part to play in developing learners who can take calculated risks, think creatively, and identify and grasp opportunities through inspirational teaching and making connections between the business world and education.

The Business Studies course has strong links with the professional Business Studies teaching networks and guest speakers include subject officers from the WJEC as well as key representatives from Welsh Government initiatives.

We are pleased to have strong links with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David's Swansea Business School where the 'Big Business Bonanza' provides PGCE Business students with an annual opportunity to deliver innovative and exciting workshops to Year 10 pupils who have opted to do Business.

Course Overview

The PGCE is a full-time academic and professional programme, broadly comprising university-based provision of approximately 12 weeks, and at least 24 weeks based in school.

Across our suite of ITE programmes, we have a newly accredited and innovative core curriculum which includes:

  • Compulsory modules
  • Research skill development
  • Professional pathway for Qualified Teacher Status
  • Welsh Language Development Pathway
  • Bridging – activities which bring together theory and practice
  • Electives – a school-based experience following a chosen area of interest
  • Alternative setting – an opportunity to experience non-school education settings

As we work in a collaborative partnership, we offer you a wide range of opportunities from a variety of schools, including primary and special schools.

Career Opportunities

Yr Athrofa has excellent graduate employment rates with 99% of graduates going into employment or further study.

Many schools and college departments, both locally and nationally, are staffed with several of our teachers and many have gone on to forge successful teaching careers at strategic, professional and management levels at home and abroad.

Our PGCE graduates usually remain in close touch with Yr Athrofa as they make their careers in the teaching profession and they often become subject mentors on the programme. This creates a very strong, sustainable professional network of teachers, which is a rich source of continuing professional development.
