This course is designed to provide you with a deep understanding of how children and adolescents learn, and equip you with the skills and knowledge needed to develop as a creative and innovative teacher. You will learn about adolescent’s development through the Secondary sector and be supported to become an excellent teacher. This PGCE with QTS is recognised across Wales and England and is often transferable further afield for entry into the teaching profession.

The programme will develop teachers who promote the subject`s contemporary relevance in today`s society and who: Use contemporary local, national and international issues and events to deliver key concepts, processes and ideas; Use constructivist principles and practices to inform the planning of learning; Skilled in the use of AfL practice that accurately identifies progress and triggers appropriate intervention following evaluation; Ensure subject progress is accessible to all and that learning is inclusive and embraces diversity; Appreciate the dynamic nature of Geography and its philosophical nuances; Developing an investigative and enquiry approach to learning that inspires learners, fostering curiosity, questioning and a capacity to make informed balanced decisions; Using technology, current techniques and GIS to enhance learning; can teach a cogent sense of place and identity (with particular reference to Wales), referring to key specific geographical features and processes, human and physical.
