Course Summary

Our specialist PGCE History is a direct route to a career of which you can be proud. History teachers empower young people to study the past and the legacies of the past in the present. Our PGCE History aims to produce dynamic confident, and creative teachers who are committed to making History relevant to students today. It prepares you to teach students to establish historical significance, use primary source evidence, identify continuity and change, analyse cause and consequence, take historical perspectives, and understand the ethical dimension of historical interpretations.

Our PGCE History includes a specific focus on the use of seminars, workshops and fieldwork and develops a range of teaching styles appropriate to the delivery of History within the National Curriculum and GCSE/A Level specifications. History teachers can enable pupils to see the linkages between past and present which is absolutely basic for a good understanding of the condition of being human.
