Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Translate your passion for English texts, language and drama into a rewarding career as a teacher. We will help you develop your understanding of the nuts and bolts of practical teaching alongside a wide range of theoretical techniques, giving you the skills to manage a variety of teaching scenarios.

For example, you could fuel your pupils' interest in the English language and great literary works by using drama to bring short stories, poems and books to life.

You will become a storyteller in your lessons, developing pupils' understanding of fiction and its importance to western culture. Learning how to expertly read and express texts using intonation will be a key part of your developing skill set and will play an important role in sparking your pupils' interest. You will also learn how to select different texts to match the different abilities and level of understanding of your class.

We will help you understand the different styles modern writers use and how to apply them in a classroom situation so pupils are able to understand how to write for a specific audience to have the maximum impact on the reader.

We have been identified as one of the leading teacher training providers in England. We are one of only 25 universities to have had their initial teacher training allocations confirmed for the next three years, an acknowledgement by the Department for Education of their excellent provision.

You can choose from two different training models.

University-led: You will develop your theoretical knowledge at our Headingley Campus, which offers a superb learning environment, modern facilities and excellent resources. Your learning will be informed by the very latest research and the expertise of our supportive teaching staff. We will organise your extensive school placements so you can apply your knowledge in a classroom setting and your placements will be timetabled to fit with your taught seminars on campus.

School Direct: For the vast majority of your course, you will be based in your provider school or schools, learning on the job while being supported by experienced teachers and mentors. You will attend our Headingley Campus one day a week (usually a Friday) for key module seminars.

TEACHING & LEARNING

Independent study is a crucial part of learning at university and you will be required to undertake many hours of self-directed research and reading, and preparation and writing of assessments. Your course is delivered through a number of modules, which will help you to plan your time and establish a study routine. Outside of your lectures, workshops and tutorials, a range of support is available to assist with your independent study. Our subject-specific librarians will be on hand to direct you to the specialist learning and study-skill resources. You’ll also be assigned an academic advisor to give you tailored feedback and support.

Our silver status in the latest Teaching Excellence Framework, reflects our commitment to deliver high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
