Course summary

Stimulating young minds and watching pupils grow in confidence to achieve their full potential - that’s what secondary education is all about. It can be a challenging profession, but also one of the most rewarding. Teach history and you could really set your pupils’ imaginations alight, instilling a life-long passion for history.

Our PGCE Master’s programme closely interweaves school and university-based training. Over 38 weeks, you’ll spend at least120 days (minimum 24 weeks) on school placementand 60 study days in structured learning at UEA.

Our course will provide you with the opportunity to research and evaluate the latest thinking in good teaching practice, helping you understand the optimum ways pupils learn. Importantly, it will also enable you to develop your own strategies to make the challenge of teaching history a satisfying and enjoyable experience.

OVERVIEW

Our one-year, full-time Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) Secondary History programme will equip you with the skills, experience and knowledge you need to teach history to pupils aged between 11 and 16 – plus the option of additional experience of A-Level history teaching. Upon successful completion of your PGCE you’ll graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) and90 Master’s level credits.

Learning to become an accomplished history teacher, able to inspire pupils of all ages and abilities, is a complex and multi-faceted challenge. What’s more, the way history is taught in schools has recently aroused a lot of controversy, with many views emerging on why and how it should be done.
