Course summary

The aim of the course is to prepare you to become a confident and excellent secondary school teacher of Geography.

PGCE Geography at Yr Athrofa provides a strong understanding of the teaching and learning process across the age range of the secondary setting, including the exam groups.

This is essential for the development of a range of teaching skills such as lesson planning and preparation, questioning, explaining, assessment, preparing resources, and classroom management strategies.

We consider Geography to be an inter-connected subject within the Humanities Area of Learning and Experience but also with strong links to the cross-curricular responsibilities of literacy, numeracy and digital competence.

This an important element of the course in the context of exciting education reforms in Wales and allows you to develop your subject expertise within and beyond the discipline.

In addition, it highlights the importance of Geography in helping young people to become ambitious, creative and ethical citizens.

Excellent subject knowledge, passion for education and an ability to adapt to a professional role are essential requirements for this secondary pathway.

Assessment

The programme offers 60 credits at Masters level and 60 credits at Graduate Level. These are awarded on successful completion of module assessments which include:

  • Case studies
  • Portfolios
  • Video presentation
  • Research Project

All assessments are closely linked to practice and are designed to offer you the opportunity to develop teaching and learning that has a positive impact on children and young people.
